NFL Playoffs 2015: Dallas Cowboys vs. Green Bay Packers - Prediction

New, comments
Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Both of these teams finished the season at 12-4, so this is by far the highest profile matchup of the divisional playoffs. Dallas is coming off of an exciting win over the Lions at home, but here is the stat to be aware of -- Tony Romo and the Cowboys were a perfect 8-0 on the road this season, a rarity in the NFL.

Aaron Rodgers might be a tad banged up, but this is a case where the bye week may truly pay off in terms of the injury factor. Rodgers' streak of not turning the ball over at home is pretty remarkable, and Green Bay will force the Cowboys to go more of the shootout route than the tempo of their game against the Lions was. If Rodgers isn't too impacted by his limited mobility, Green Bay gets the edge. Packers 31, Cowboys 28
