For about a decade, the thought of the Green Bay Packers playing in Dallas sent shivers up the spines of Cheeseheads everywhere. Texas Stadium was a house of horrors for the 1990s Packers, as many a playoff run ended in disappointment under the half-exposed roof in Irving, Texas.
But since the Cowboys moved into AT&T Stadium, things have been different. The Packers have played four games in the new facility, which opened for the 2009 season, and have been victorious in all four. Each was a truly memorable game, too. The franchise’s first game in the building was its victory in Super Bowl XLV, a 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The three games against the Cowboys have all been thrilling victories with the winning score coming in the final two minutes of the game, including a Divisional Playoff win following the 2016 campaign.
If the Packers plan to improve to 4-1 on the young 2019 season, they will need to overcome about a field-goal advantage towards the Cowboys based on Vegas’ point spread.
For fans across the US, there’s good news. Because of the schedule this week, every home in the country within range of a FOX station will get the game on local channels, thanks to there being no other competing games on that network. That means no broadcast map is necessary for this week’s primer!
