At first blush, this feels like a mismatch. The Packers had what can only be described as a difficult year getting to the playoffs. The team was far behind their division leaders, the Detroit Lions, and with a 9-8 record, didn’t quite have the high-powered offense and stingy defense that some anticipated from the Packers at the start of the season. For many, the Packers season was rather ho-hum.

The Cowboys, however, have rebuilt their franchise. With a 12-5 record and quarterback Dak Prescott playing exceptionally well, the Cowboys at times have looked almost unbeatable. Indeed, if anything should come as a surprise, it’s that the Cowboys didn’t quite play well enough to get a first round bye.

It’s against that backdrop that we come into today's game with intrigue. Anyone who watches football — and oddsmakers, as well — say the Cowboys should easily take home the victory and advance to the Divisional round. But we should also keep in mind that this is a young Cowboys team and Prescott hasn’t had the opportunity yet to fully put himself to the test at the highest levels. And in recent years, the Cowboys have been disappointing in pressure situations.

In other words, the Cowboys should win this game. But will they? And if they don’t, what does that mean for the team’s (and Prescott’s) future? Moreover, what does it say about a Packers team, led by Jordan Love, that may have an exceptionally bright future?

DraftKings has the Packers as 7-point road underdogs going into Jerry World, with the over/under set at 51 points. Expect plenty of scoring no matter who wins.
