But 7-6-1 never felt so good. Especially if Rodgers is finally ready to return for Green Bay's regular-season home finale against Pittsburgh next Sunday. This game wasn't just a potential springboard to bigger things for the Packers, it was a warp-speed catapult that sent them rocketing into the stratosphere. At least from an emotional standpoint.

Who knows what the Packers might still have in store after Sunday's season-saving win? Once again Dallas, and this charmed stadium that the Cowboys call home, has served to put Green Bay in a championship state of mind.
