The Packers are on a serious roll having won seven in a row including a beat down of the Giants last weekend.
They did the Cowboys a favour by knocking off New York so lets see if they are shown some southern hospitality.
Dallas has been very good all season long but was off last week due to their capturing the top record in the conference. For a young team that might not have been the best case scenario.
Kick off is set for 4:40 PM ET with rookie QB Dak Prescott looking to prove he can beat a former Super Bowl winner and MVP in Aaron Rodgers in his first go around the league.
Are the lights going to be too bright.
Green Bay Packers
Suffice it to say the Packers are on a roll but it will be harder to keep the good times going without Jordy Nelson.
The receiver proved throughout the season that he was back but with the rib injury he sustained against the Giants he is expected to be out.
Against New York that meant more opportunities for Randall Cobb who picked a perfect moment to have his best game of the season. He has always been a dynamic playmaker and they are going to need him as much as ever this weekend.
Last week Rodgers was sacked 5 times by NYG. They need to tighten up their protections on offense.
The Packers defense bottled up the Giants running game but that will be much harder against the second best rushing attack in the league.
Rush D is the strength of this group but the overall numbers are also a product of how easy it is to pass against Green Bay. When they met earlier in the season Dallas ran all over GB in an easy victory.
Green Bay needs their defense to keep things close so Rodgers has a chance.
The extra week has the Cowboys healthier than they might have been if they had to play last week as key OL Tyron Smith and DB Morris Claiborne are both probable.
This is a good Cowboys team but I am not confident they would be able to be a threat in the playoffs at anything less than full strength.
They should be nice and fresh, especially Ezekiel Elliott, who was held out of the final game of the season – he still led the league in rushing by more than 300 yards.
Dak played sparingly but had one of his best games of the season against Green Bay when they beat the Packers in week 6.
These guys are good to go.
If the offense is clicking it will take some pressure of a D that while stout is not dynamic. Dallas’ leading sacker this season was Benson Mayowa, who had just six and Barry Church led in interceptions with 2.
Those are the game changing plays that can totally influence a playoff game and Dallas does not make a lot of them.
Dallas has earned the right to host this game and be the favourite but despite their season long success they are not a lock to advance any further.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Green Bay +4.5
I think this game will be dominated by the offense. Look for both teams to go back and forth and have this one ultimatley separated by a field goal. Green Bay can definitely win on the road.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Dallas 27 – Green Bay 24
The ability of Dallas to run the ball and churn the clock late will be the difference. Dak and Zeke will extend their legend on Sunday.
