3. Dallas Cowboys

Aaron Rodgers loves playing against the Dallas Cowboys, especially in January.

Under Rodgers, the Packers have eliminated the Cowboys both times they have met in the postseason.

Green Bay is 5-0 at AT&T Stadium. Even its 2010 Super Bowl victory was held in that stadium.

Of course, history from previous seasons counts for very little. Especially as Mike McCarthy, head coach of multiple Packers victories over the Cowboys, is now on the other sideline.

The fact is this would be a huge test for Green Bay.

While the Packers did earn a 31-28 overtime victory over the Cowboys at Lambeau Field earlier this season, they had to fight back from a two-touchdown deficit.

Dallas has one of the most talented rosters in the league. It ranks second in scoring offense and sixth in scoring defense. It finished the regular season 8-1 at home.

Following consecutive defeats for the Philadelphia Eagles, the Cowboys can still win the NFC East, which would give them one of the top three seeds.

This would be a huge challenge for the Packers, especially on the road, but they could take confidence from their win over the Cowboys earlier in the season.

Could Aaron Rodgers eliminate the Cowboys yet again?
