How The Cowboys Got Here
Although the Cowboys struggled on the road this season, they looked like the NFL’s best at home. Dak Prescott pieced together a strong season, even being considered an MVP frontrunner at points. CeeDee Lamb broke out as a superstar while the rest of the passing attack proved to be multiple. However, it’s the defense that wreaked havoc, led by Micah Parsons and DaRon Bland, who broke the record for pick-sixes in a season.
For at least the first two rounds of the playoffs, the Cowboys are promised to play in Arlington. Should San Francisco lose at any point, Dallas continues its home field up to the Super Bowl.
How The Packers Got Here
The first few weeks post-Aaron Rodgers was a rocky time. The Packers started 2-5 with ugly losses to the Falcons, Raiders, and Broncos. Offensively, Green Bay was a mess. Then, quarterback Jordan Love found his stride, winning four of their next five including over the Chiefs, Lions, and Rams. The corps of young receivers stepped up, namely Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed. Love threw for 250+ yards in seven of his eight final games, throwing 20 touchdowns and just three picks.
Although the Packers are away from the friendly confines of Lambeau, their win over the Lions came in Detroit on Thanksgiving Day. Once again, the Packers travel to the Motor City in a standalone game with Love red-hot.
