The Dallas Cowboys will have two key pieces on the field as they attempt to slow down Aaron Rodgers and Eddie Lacy in Sunday's Divisional Round matchup.

Both linebacker Rolando McClain and pass rusher Jeremy Mincey are active for the Dallas Cowboys. The duo was dealing with concussion issues this week. 

McClain, the team's second-leading tackler, has been the Cowboys' best defender for large portions of the season. His ability to plug the middle will be huge in trying to slow down Lacy.

Mincey, meanwhile, was Dallas' leader in quarterback hurries and sacks. With a less than 100 percent Rodgers, Mincey's ability to rush the passer could pay big dividends for Jason Garrett's squad.

As the team's official website points outm with linebackers Keith Smith and James Anderson both inactive, the team must feel good about McClain's and Mincey's ability to play heavy workloads.
