Pittsburgh's victory also sent the Houston Texans to season-wins leader New England next Saturday, the same day Seattle will visit Atlanta in the other second-round playoff game.
It's a matchup between the NFC's best team and the conference's hottest team. If Dallas forgets to game plan against the ground game, Green Bay will take advantage of that. The Packers had just three plays of 20 or more yards.
So, can Green Bay win this week?
"We've got to start faster", Rodgers said when asked about how the Packers need to improve following the Week 6 loss to Dallas.
The Packers look as if they can beat anybody with the way quarterback Aaron Rodgers is throwing the ball, even if they could be without receiver Jordy Nelson with a rib injury. They also had a season-high four turnovers (three fumbles, one interception) and were minus-2 in turnover differential - one of five games inj which they were on the negative side of the ledger.
Dallas knocked off Green Bay 30-16 in October during the Cowboys' 11-game winning streak. Only eight teams surrendered a worse opponents' passer rating, and there doesn't seem to be any team in the National Football League that can stop Rodgers at this point.
Those big-play Packers are back, having scored at least 30 points each of the last four weeks.
It started when Rodgers hit Nelson up for the first of many rides to the airport in 2012 and has blossomed into a successful familiarity that was apparent when Rodgers hit Nelson on a long pass in his first week of practice last summer. Wednesday was the second anniversary of the game, and the Packers and Cowboys are preparing to meet again Sunday in a divisional playoff game.
The Giants have had success in Green Bay in recent history in the postseason. Overall the Cowboys were over a yard better per play - 6.8 to 5.6.

Rushing for 1,631 yards on the season, Elliott nearly had a season-high with 157 yards on 28 carries against Green Bay.
Green Bay's defense is successful when it can force turnovers, but that isn't likely to happen against Dallas.
That provided a welcome shot of confidence for the fourth-seeded Packers heading into their game against the top-seeded Cowboys.
"As soon as they played the Rocky theme song, I was like, 'You've got to get me in this game, '" Lee joked before explaining.
This is a huge test for the Cowboys, who have lost four in a row in this round of the playoffs, going 1-3 ATS at online betting sites in those games.
Others expected to receive MVP votes are Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.
The interesting thing about that game was that numerous other stats were even or slanted in the Packers favor (except for the all-important turnover battle).
For the Cowboys, they are hoping for defensive back Morris Claiborne's return. But to get to the Promised Land, their path won't be easy.
