The Green Bay Packers earned a trip to the NFC Championship
Game with a hard fought 26-21 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at Lambeau
Field.  Aaron Rodger’s 13 yard TD pass to
Richard Rodgers with 9:10 left in the 4th quarter provided the
winning points. The Packers got help from the video booth with 4:06 left in the
game when Tony Romo apparently completed a 31 yard pass to Dez Bryant inside
the 1 yard line on 4th down that could have set up a go-ahead
touchdown.  The Packers challenged the
call and the call was reversed, giving the Packers the ball.  Aaron Rodger’s threw the dagger on 12 yard
pass on 3rd down to Randall Cobb just after the 2-minute warning to
secure the win.  Rodgers finished with
316 yards and three touchdowns through the air. 
Rookie Devante Adams caught 7 passes for 117 yards and a TD.  Cobb caught 8 passes for 116 yards.  Eddie Lacy ran for 101 yards on 19
carries.  The win sends the Packers to Seattle next Sunday with
a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. 
The game will kickoff at 2pm central time and you’ll hear it on
News-Talk 1450 KFIZ.
