Packers defeat Cowboys
The second half of the NFC Championship is set to be determined Sunday, as the Dallas Cowboys will travel to take on the Green Bay Packers in a Divisional round matchup. Dallas and Green Bay both finished the regular season at 12-4, but the Packers will host this game as they had the tiebreak and therefore a higher seed.
That higher seed also allowed the Packers to rest up during the Wild Card round, while the Cowboys were playing a very hard-fought game against the Detroit Lions, the conferences' sixth seed. Dallas is the No. 3 seed, while Green Bay is No. 2. The Cowboys relied on a second half comeback to beat the Lions, and could be in for another given the two offenses at work in this game.
It's worth noting that, while Green Bay is one of the tougher places to play in the NFL, the Cowboys managed to win every single road game this season, with all four losses coming at home. That's huge, though the Packers did win every game at home this season on top of that. Here's how you can watch the game Sunday:
