The favored Green Bay Packers hosted the Dallas Cowboys at the stadium where these two teams have played some very memorable games in the past . . . but, this time it was the Cowboys who came out on top 37-17 to bounce the Packers from the tournament.
Green Bay actually ran 20 more plays than Dallas, but a combination of great field position for the Cowboys and Packer quarterback, Aaron Rodgers being sacked 7 times, was the difference in the contest.
Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott both had sold games in the victory – Prescott with 21 completions for 247 yards and a pair of TD’s, and Elliott rushed for 89 yards on 17 carries and also scored twice.
The Cowboys now travel to New Orleans for a rematch with the Saints.
