Jacobs and Bradshaw are going to have to combine for more than 88 yards on the ground if they want to beat Green Bay in that cold, wet weather.
I think you are missing the point. The running game has become more efficient to the point where they don't need Eli to convert 3rd and long all the time. The point is Eli only had to throw 18 times and only faced 9 third downs as opposed to Dallas' 16. You have so many more options offensively when you are converting 3rd and short as opposed to 3rd and 8 and the other team knows you are throwing the ball.
