Packers playoff opponent set as Cowboys rally to beat Lions
Tony Romo found Terrence Williams in the end zone with less than 3:00 to play, capping a Cowboys comeback and helping lead Dallas to a 24-20 win over the Lions in the first round of the NFC playoffs Sunday at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.
With Dallas's win, they are locked in as the Packers opponent for the divisional playoff game next Sunday the 11th at 12:05PM at Lambeau Field.
The Cowboys struggled early in the game, falling behind 14-0 after a Matthew Stafford touchdown pass to Golden Tate and a rushing score from Reggie Bush. The Lions drove the ball 99 yards, something that hadn't happened in the playoffs in 12 years, on the drive that resulted in Bush's touchdown.
It would prove to be Detroit's last touchdown of the game. The Cowboys rallied with a long TD pass from Romo to Williams in the first half, followed by a DeMarco Murray 1-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that set up the late-game drama.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett went for it on 4th and 7, and Romo completed a pass to Jason Witten to keep a fourth quarter drive alive. A short time later, Romo found Williams in a crowded end zone to give Dallas the lead for good.
The Cowboys' last playoff game in Green Bay was the 1967 NFL Championship Game, also known as \"The Ice Bowl\" for the frigid temperatures at Lambeau Field that day.
