Aaron Rodgers hits Richard Rodgers for TD on free play

It was Cook's catch for the Green Bay Packers that everybody is talking about. The man has made his mark, and he's never not going to diminish anything that LeBron James or Aaron Rodgers accomplish. The teams most recently met in the playoffs on January 23, 2005, when New England's 41-27 victory sent them on to Super Bowl XXXIX. It set the exact tone the Packers wanted.

Aaron Rodgers had to play at the peak of his powers in order for the Packers to beat the Cowboys and advance to the NFC Championship Game.

Pros: Dallas had the best record in the NFC this season at 13-3 but they did so mostly thanks to a stellar running game, led by rookie Ezekiel Elliot. The rest of the National Football League has five total during that span and no quarterback has more than one.

Pressure? Not an issue for Rodgers, who has taken his game - and his leadership - to new levels this season. He staged a quarterbacking clinic for much of the game Sunday, in part because he had to.

The Falcons will be playing in the Georgia Dome for the final time.

Jerry Jones will carry some Giant baggage into Sunday's Cowboys-Packers showdown. He gave the safest and most logical response, picking a venue, not an opponent. "And I told our team afterwards that these last three hours demonstrated who we are".

Mobley's mother was 16 years old at the time. "They've taken footprints from 15 babies and have done DNA testing on two others". There is no statute of limitations in the case and she could face life in prison. "She appears to be normal and healthy".

"I was proud", said El Paso Cowboys fan David Rosales. "There's a lot of nerves in your first playoff game".

The feeling, though, might be a little more like 1991, when the Cowboys lost to Detroit in the same round and went into the offseason feeling the need to add an elite pass-rushing end.

Rodgers threw for 320 yards and two touchdowns as the Packers (12-6) won their eighth straight. They were 13-3, the No. 1 seed in the NFC and 51/2-point favorites over Green Bay. Rodgers has thrown an unbelievable 18 touchdown passes without an interception during that winning streak, evoking memories of his MVP season in 2011 and the Super Bowl run in 2010. But with only 18 seconds remaining, Rodgers fired incomplete deep downfield.

Rodgers is no stranger to making important throws on critical drives.

Witten is entering the final year of his deal after finally catching his first postseason touchdown and figures to be back for a 15th season. Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott led the Cowboys back from their biggest deficit of the season, scoring two fourth-quarter touchdowns to tie the score at 28 with just more than four minutes on the clock.

Factor in Davante Adams, and Rodgers' 4428 passing yards for 2016 are unlikely to go to waste against a Dallas defence which is comparatively weaker than the Packers' Wild Card round opponent.
