This is the eighth postseason meeting between the teams, which includes such memorable matchups as the “Ice Bowl” in 1967.
And the Packers and Cowboys are tied with the Giants for the most playoff appearances at 32.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy has nine playoff wins, tied with Vince Lombardi and Mike Holmgren for the most in club history.
The Cowboys, who have four straight losses in the divisional round, are looking for their first NFC championship game appearance since the 1995 season.
Dak Prescott will be the first rookie QB to start a playoff game for Cowboys.
Since winning the Super Bowl after the 2010 season, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has not won back-to-back playoff games.
Packers receiver Jordy Nelson, who had an NFL-high 14 touchdown catches in the regular season, will miss the game because of injured ribs.
“We’re a different offense, though,” Rodgers said earlier in the week about his team’s offensive options.
“We’re doing a lot of different things than we were last year, a lot of things better. I think our offensive line is playing better. Our scheme has advanced, and we’re getting more contributions from the tight end at this point.
“Davante (Adams) is a legit receiver in this league, and obviously Randall Cobb, who is established as well,” he said.
