Two of the NFL’s most storied franchises do battle on Sunday as the Green Bay Packers host the Dallas Cowboys at Lambeau Field in this NFC divisional-round clash.
47 years on from the “Ice Bowl”, the Packers again have home advantage and the elements in their favour, but the Cowboys are confident that they have what it takes to claim a road win.
Averaging a league-best 34.4 points while going 8-0 on the road this season, the Cowboys have every reason to believe that they can conquer Lambeau Field and advance deeper into the post-season.
The Packers ended the season with a 12-4 record after averaging an NFL-high 39.8 points per game while winning all eight home games, and so it is the first time in NFL playoff history that a team with a perfect home record faces one with a perfect away record.
While Green Bay have won the last three meetings between these two teams, there is one significant problem ahead of Sunday’s encounter. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is nursing a calf injury and so that could well be a key factor in the match-up as Tony Romo looks to steal the show.
Rodgers is an MVP candidate after throwing for 4,381 yards with 38 touchdowns and five interceptions, and he insists that he is ready to go on Sunday which will set up an intriguing battle between two of the best signal-callers in the league.
There are numerous exciting match-ups and head-to-head clashes to look out for as well as key performers such as Dez Bryant, DeMarco Murray, Eddie Lacy and Jordy Nelson, and so this game promises to be the pick of the weekend action.
