    IRVING, Texas – Until the Cowboys win in December, the closing month will always be the toughest stretch of games.

    Three of the Cowboys’ December opponents had winning records in 2012 (Chicago, Green Bay, Washington) and two made the playoffs (Packers, Redskins). The Bears finished 10-6 in 2012 and lost out on a wild-card spot due to tiebreakers.

    Winning at Chicago in December is a difficult challenge, but the Bears have changed coaches and have parted ways with future Hall of Fame linebacker Brian Urlacher. The Cowboys will also look to avenge a 34-18 drubbing last season at Cowboys Stadium in which Tony Romo was intercepted five times.

    The first time Green Bay played in Cowboys Stadium it won Super Bowl XLV. Aaron Rodgers is at the top of the quarterback charts in the NFL and Clay Matthews signed an extension this week. The last time the Cowboys played the Packers happened to be Wade Phillips last game as coach, a 45-7 thrashing at Lambeau Field on Nov. 7, 2010.

    Dallas, if they are a playoff team, should be playing their best football by the time December/January comes around...

    I agree. I'm sure the league wants games with playoff implications late in the season so it really comes as no surprise to see these matchups.
