The Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers will lace the cleats up and meet in the playoffs for the eighth time in NFL history. The Cowboys are 4-3 in those games, but they lost the last one a couple of years ago in controversial fashion. On Sunday they will look to rectify that loss.

The Packers come into the game on a seven-game winning streak, famously running the table after quarterback Aaron Rodgers said that's what they would do to make the playoffs. Then they demolished the New York Giants in a playoff game giving them all kinds of confidence heading into Sunday's clash. Rodgers has been the hottest quarterback in the league over the last couple of months and tormented the Cowboys in that playoff game a few seasons ago.

The problem for the Packers is they will be without Jordy Nelson, an absence that could really limit their passing game. Randall Cobb and Davante Adams will look to pick up the slack, but the Packers are also without a viable running game to help balance things out. This leaves Rodgers in the precarious position of having to do it all. The Packers defense is creaky at best, meaning a shootout with Rodgers dominating is their best path to victory.

The Cowboys, on the other hand, will try to replicate their formula for a win earlier in the season in Green Bay. Run the ball with Ezekiel Elliott and complement that with efficient passing from Dak Prescott. The Cowboys come into the game very healthy and will have Dez Bryant back who didn't participate in the game this past October. The Cowboys defense was a huge factor in that first game, getting four turnovers against the Packers. The Cowboys defense has been improving as the season progresses, and they hope they can pressure and hit Rodgers.

It should be an interesting game to watch and the Cowboys begin their playoff run in hopes of returning to the Super Bowl.
