Quick Take: Cowboys at Packers

Three things to know about Sunday's Dallas Cowboys-Green Bay Packers NFC divisional round playoff game at Lambeau Field (1:05 p.m. ET, FOX):

1. Romo in Wisconsin: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is from Burlington, Wis., and his idol growing up was former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre. When the Cowboys visit Lambeau Field on Sunday, expect a solid group of Romo's family and friends to attend the game. In his career, Romo is 2-3 with eight touchdowns and five interceptions against the Packers. In his last appearance at Lambeau, Romo and the Cowboys lost 17-7 to the Packers in 2009. Dallas also lost the last meeting between the teams, 37-36, in 2013 at AT&T Stadium.

2. Road good for Cowboys: The Cowboys went 8-0 on the road this season and haven't lost a road game since Dec. 9, 2013, at Chicago. Overall, the Cowboys have won their last nine road games. Since 1970, the Cowboys have won more road games (179) than any NFL team. San Francisco (178) and Miami (176) come the closest. This season, the Cowboys have rallied to win three road games against St. Louis (down 21-0), Seattle (10-0) and the New York Giants (21-10). After taking a 3-0 lead in the regular season finale at Washington, the Redskins took a 7-3 lead, but the Cowboys scored the next 24 points to put the game away.

3. Playoff history: The Cowboys enter the NFC divisional round for the 25th time in franchise history and have compiled a 34-25 postseason record, the most playoff victories in NFL history. The Cowboys, however, have lost their last two road playoff games, with Romo the quarterback in both losses. The Cowboys lead the NFL in playoff games (59) and are tied with the Giants with 31 playoff appearances.
