Monday Night Football pick: Will Lions take advantage of potentially-resting Cowboys?

Two days after Christmas last year, the Cowboys started Kellen Moore at quarterback in a 16–6 loss at Buffalo that dropped them to 4–11.

Quite a bit has changed since then.

Now, the Cowboys boast a 12–2 record and have locked up home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. They host a desperate Detroit team on Monday night, but first face a question without a real correct answer: Should they rest their key players ahead of the playoffs?

“It’s an age-old question and certainly deserves to be a question,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said this week, via the Star-Telegram. “How much do you want to be playing well? How much edge do you want to have? I know that in our season here with Wade Phillips, we had a great season … and rested pretty good the last ballgame. And we ended up losing the first playoff game that we had with home-field bye all the way through. That’s going to bear heavily, our experience there with Wade in ’07 will weigh heavily on any thoughts I have about who plays.”
