Packers Preview: Packers Renew Playoff Rivalry Against the Cowboys

The Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys renew their playoff rivalry Sunday at 3:40 pm at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The winner will play Atlanta in the NFC Championship game--Dallas to host or Green Bay to travel to the Georgia Dome.

The Packers advanced last Sunday by beating the New York Giants 38-13 in the Wild Card round.

Receiver Jordy Nelson is inactive with fractured ribs that he suffered in that win. Nelson led the NFL with 14 receiving touchdowns during the regular season.

The Cowboys are coming off a bye-week after earning the NFC's top-seed with a 13-3 regular season record, including a 30-16 win against the Packers at Lambeau Field in week six.

The Packers and Cowboys have played seven playoff games, with Dallas winning four games and the Packers winning three, most recently after the 2014 season.

This will be the first time quarterback Aaron Rodgers plays the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium. He won Super Bowl 45 in his only start in Arlington, Texas.

The Packers are 2-0 all-time at AT&T Stadium, including the Super Bowl victory and a win in the 2013 regular season.
