Packers at Cowboys Final Stats

In one of the more dramatic games in NFL playoff history, the Green Bay Packers advance to the NFC Championship Game, defeating the Dallas Cowboys 34-31. No team decisively controlled the game more, both teams were relatively the same concerning offensive efficiency and both teams' quarterbacks had nearly the same Net Yards/Pass Attempt. Green Bay only slightly performed better at the end, having possession at the end of the game.

Dallas used all three of its available quarterbacks, with Tony Romo scoring the lone touchdown. Cowboys finish the season at 13-3, a few games over their expected record, making them large overachievers for the season.
