Defense will decide this game. I think we can all agree if Brett Favre doesn't waffle and retire again after the season, he can say he handed it to Green Bay and showed the New York Jets he is still a Pro Bowl Quarterback.

Farve has the experience but Tony Romo has the defense. Yes, I said it. Tony Romo has the defense.

DeMarcus Ware, Jay Ratliff ET all will put serious pressure on Brett Farve. Substitute the picture above for the Minnesota Quarterback.

I know Tony Romo cannot throw from his back either. So Jared Allen and Kevin Williams better have a superior game to match the daunting Dallas Defense.

Yes the corner-backs and Free safety have to cover the receivers but not for long. I give the edge to the Cowboy's in this department. They will cover and have help because Dallas will only have to rush 4 people. 

This will free up the linebackers to keep Adrian Peterson in check. Truthfully it wouldn't surprise me if he breaks a long run in the game. He has that kind of skill and well I am biased as I lived in Oklahoma during his time at OU. Quality running back.

This is about the defense though. Brett Farve doesn't have that scramble ability at age 40. His offensive line will have to be top notch this week to keep Minny in the game. The only way Minny beats Dallas is giving time to Farve to use the passing game. I just do not see Dallas Defense letting this happen.

Only Dallas killer in my mind may be penalty's. Last week they were atrocious and brought back or ended big drives.

This game is decided by Defense and special teams for field position. End of story.
