2017 NFL Playoffs: #1 Cowboys vs #4 Packers live updates and Patriots rooting guide

Join the discussion!

The #1 Dallas Cowboys are hosting the #4 Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. Kick off is at 4:40 PM EST on FOX. The Cowboys are 4-point favorites.

Since the Atlanta Falcons defeated the Seattle Seahawks, the New England Patriots will want the winner of this game to eliminate the Falcons next week. The Falcons offense is the most dangerous in the league, while the Cowboys feature a rookie quarterback and the Packers defense is injured.

The Cowboys have a better defense than the Packers and the ability to control the clock, and they would be the home team in the NFC Championship Game. The Patriots will be rooting for the Cowboys.

Use this as the open thread for discussion.
