NFL picks: Predictions for Cowboys-Packers, Colts-Broncos

Updating our Divisional round playoff picks with the Cowboys-Packers and Colts-Broncos on Sunday.

Here's who will win day two of the Divisional round playoff games.

Dallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers(-5.5)

Without question, this is the most compelling matchup. Green Bay is a better team than Dallas and is a complete juggernaut at home. The Packers are the only team with an undefeated home record, averaging 39.8 points per game at venerable Lambeau Field. However, Aaron Rodgers is dealing with a significant calf injury and could be limited. Can Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and the rest of the boys outscore Green Bay?

Pick: Packers 38, Cowboys 31

Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos (-7)

Denver is winning this game. The Broncos have two excellent pas-rushers against a Colts team that struggles to block. Additionally, Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware can pin their ears back and rush all game because Indianapolis refuses to put a decent running back on the field. Peyton Manning is no longer the player he once was, but he will do more than enough to advance to a second straight AFC Championship game.

Pick: Broncos 34, Colts 23
