In mid-October, the Dallas Cowboys stormed into Lambeau Field and beat the Green Bay Packers by 14 points. Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott torched the Packers defense, gaining 157 yards on the ground.
Dallas was clearly the better team in that Week 6 matchup, but now in the divisional round of the playoffs, it’s a different story.
The Packers are riding a seven-game winning streak and playing as well as anyone in the playoffs. While the absence of Jordy Nelson won’t help, it won’t derail the Packers offense.
This game will be an offensive showdown, and who would you rather have under center: a two-time MVP or a rookie making his first playoff start?
Prediction: Packers 31, Cowboys 27
