The Dallas Cowboys will look to move one step closer to the Super Bowl when they travel to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers. Led by quarterback Tony Romo, Dallas engineered a late fourth quarter touchdown drive to top the Detroit Lions 24-20 last weekend.
With just 2:32 remaining in the fourth quarter, Romo hit wide receiver Terrance Williams on a crossing route for a 7-yard touchdown to give Dallas a 24-20 advantage. Before halftime, Williams scored Dallas’ first touchdown on a slant-and-go route where Detroit’s secondary broke down and allowed Williams to run untouched for a 76-yard touchdown. Detroit did a nice job against Dez Bryant, limiting him to just three catches for 48 yards. Tight end Jason Witten and wide receiver Cole Beasley each had 63 receiving yards in the victory. Running back DeMarco Murray rushed for 75 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries against Detroit’s top ranked run defense.
Dallas will need all of its playmakers to step up for a highly anticipated matchup against Green Bay. Fans can expect to pay average ticket prices for this match-up.
According to TiqIQ, the average secondary market price for Cowboys vs Packers tickets is $323.71 while the average get-in price is $187. While the average ticket price is the lowest among the NFL Divisional Round games, this matchup features the highest get-in ticket prices.
The Cowboys defense must find a way to slow down Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay’s explosive passing attack.
Rodgers may be dealing with a minor calf injury, which would limit his ability to scramble and move in the pocket. Regardless of injury, Rodgers is one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks and can pick any defense apart. Rodgers’ top two targets, wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, have combined for 25 touchdowns during the regular season.
One way to limit Green Bay’s offense is to keep it off the field. Green Bay’s defense allowed 119.9 rushing yards per game, which ranked 23rd in the league. Dallas and its highly touted rushing attack has the ability to control the clock. Dallas was a perfect 8-0 in road games, so expect a spirited battle between these two teams.
The winner of this game will just be a game away from representing the NFC in the Super Bowl. Currently, the secondary market average price for Super Bowl tickets on TiqIQ is $3,370.23, almost exactly the average price of last year’s Super Bowl.
