Super Wild Card Weekend: Packers at Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys will host the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Wild Card Round in the NFL playoffs . Join us in the comments section to talk football during the game!

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Washington Commanders Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys fell just short of homefield advantage with the San Francisco 49ers owning the tiebreaker for that top spot. So Dallas will host the seventh seeded Green Bay Packers instead. This is a game the Cowboys should win at home, but we’ve all seen them underperform in big games everyone believed they should win. We’ll have to wait and see if they can shake those doubts loose here in the Wild Card round.

Super Wild Card Weekend

Green Bay Packers (9-8) at Dallas Cowboys (12-5)
Kickoff: 2:30 PM MT on January 14, 2024
Location: AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas

My Prediction

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Cowboys are a full touchdown favorite over the Packers. In my prediction earlier this week, I wrote:

I think there will be two non-competitive games this Wild Card Weekend. The first should be the Bills game and the second should be this one between the Packers and Cowboys. The Cowboys defense should be able to get after Jordan Love and their offense should roll against that Packers defense.

Prediction: Cowboys 38, Packers 23

Since I predicted two competitive games yesterday, I would assume this one will be wrong too. Instead of a blowout, we’ll see the Cowboys limp home with a close win instead. So far, I am 2-0 on my winner picks though so I will take that.
