I think the the most notable is both of their Offensive Tackles were lost for the season which probably explains much of the reason why Rodgers was sacked 51 times this season.
Have to be impressed with those guys.
When you combine most starter games missed with least players to play all 16 games, they were the opnly team in the league worse off than Dallas.
They adapted. recall that they had a very rough start.
Also, I think we have a very good QB in Romo, but he is not Rodgers.
Rodgers will take a sack almost every time if he can't throw the ball away, so his sacks are almost always high but his ints are preposterously low. He's that extremely rare non-bus driver QB that has a very high number of TDs to go with low picks. 39 Ts and 8 ints ...whoa.
