108 DEGREES OF SEPARATION:

NFC Supremacy at Stake in Dallas (ALLEN BARRA, November 29, 2007, NY Sun)

In normal seasons — and normal here is defined as any year in which the 2007 New England Patriots aren't playing — tonight's Green Bay Packers–Dallas Cowboys match would be hailed as the regular season game of the year. In fact, it might have been billed as the regular season game of this century. Instead, it looks to be little more than an entertaining way of passing a Thursday night — at least for a while.

On ESPN Radio this morning, Ed Whirter noted that the record high in Dallas for January 20th (the date of the NFC Championship game) is 83, while the record low in Green Bay for the same day is -25, meaning the teams teams are potentially playing tonight for 108 degrees.

Thoughts after the game: You know both of these teams could beat New England. Philly showed us quite a lot last week. Of course the Packers would need Favre and Woodson healthy.
