Did you hear or see all the fire trucks racing down MLK this afternoon? The MDR has learned that the call was a false alarm at Walmart, caused by a system malfunction.
Next Weekâ€™s Matchups:
Dallas @ Green Bay
What to watch for:
Dallas will travel to Green Bay to face Aaron Rodgers and their dynamic offense. Green Bay has not lost at Lambeau Field yet this year. Dallas matches up well with Green Bay because they have a strong running game that can keep the clock running and keep the ball out of Green Bayâ€™s hands. The weather might get the best out of Dallas as it is likely to be extremely cold. Green Bayâ€™s offense will be looking to feast on a weak Dallas secondary.
Pick: Green Bay 31-24
Carolina @ Seattle
What to watch for:
Crews will be removing and repairing the two Highway 270 bridges spanning Interstate 30 near Malvern. The work will require closing the I-30 eastbound outside lane between mile markers 96 and 98.
The eastbound outside lane closure will be Thursday, January 8th and Friday, January 9th between 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., weather permitting. Traffic will be controlled using barrels and warning signs.
