I don't think Packers past playoff records have anything to do with this game. Once playoffs start, slate is clean, throw records and stats out the window. All teams took different routes to get here, and does it matter, no.

What matters is how a team is playing at the moment, not what they did last year, or early in the season. Playoffs are all about now!

True but it's still something that cannot be ignored since Aaron Rodgers was on the team in all 4 of those games. The point is the Packers have not made the superbowl when they hosted a playoff game only when they were on the road.

Home, away, it is about the make up of the teams any given year. I don't understand putting so much weight on can't win a playoff game at home, a QB can't win in Dec., or get to the playoffs! It seems dumb, as it is many players on the field plus the other team gets paid, too!

I'm happy the Packers have won the division 4 years in a row, been to the playoffs the last 6 years, and won a SB. They haven't won another SB, but I like a contending team. Some teams have very long or sporadic playoff droughts, I don't get that part.

Susan, I tend to agree with you however the one thing that does help is experience. ie when I look at the Ravens/Patriots matchup, Flacco/Harbaugh has won there before in a huge spot, so going in, I know they must have a ton of confidence...

I don't play in the NFL but I'd have to figure that would mean something....

Panthers benefited last week from going against a team with a nervous 3rd stringer QB and actually trailed after the 1st half 14-13 which tells me the seahawks shoul have no problem, Seahawks 38-10

Cowboys play their best when they are the underdog on the road which they have shown twice this season in Seattle and philly. Plus add to the fact that they have exceeded this season's expectations and playing with house money from this point on in the season. Also want to add that the Packers have not been that dominant at home in the last 4 playoff games in which they are 1-3. Cowboys 27-24
Yep, yep, yep & YEP!

Unless Rodgers totally destroys the Dallas D... the 'Boys are gonna ROUGH him up! (with apologies to Rodgers' State Farm commercial!)

Going to be a close game because of the cold weather at Lambeau so I don't see either team getting blown out because it will be hard to score

Packers have not been that dominant at home in the last 4 playoff games in which they are 1-3.

Found this at NFL.com: Romo's playoff record -- one win, three losses Is that not the same??? Oh, I get it, Pack can't win in the playoffs at Lambeau! We'll see! A great deal hinges on how well Aaron can play!

Romo has 2-3 playoff record.

Wins over eagles and Lions
losses to seattle, Minnesota, and Giants

So if he wins this weekend he will have a .500 playoff record at 3-3

Not to get picky, 1-3 was prior to 2014, which is what the Packers record you stated is. I was comparing the two on an equal basis. 2014 playoffs aren't over yet.
