The match was revealed exclusively on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday morning.

“American game of the week, that should be exciting. First of all, you’ve got two playoff teams. You’ve got Aaron Rodgers, Dak Prescott, plus Mike McCarthy – the head coach. He’s going back to Green Bay in a team where he won a Super Bowl. It should be a great ballgame,” said Jimmy Johnson, who coached the Cowboys before becoming a broadcaster on FOX’s NFL pregame show.

McCarthy coached the Packers from 2006 to 2018 before being fired after Week 13 of the season. He guided the Packers to a Super Bowl title in the 2011 season, but was never able to replicate that feat.

Green Bay has been on the verge of returning to the Super Bowl since hiring Matt LaFleur, but has yet to get past the NFC Championship Game to get there.

Dallas will look to rectify a disappointing season that ended in a much-maligned Prescott rush against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC wild card round. The 49ers went on to defeat the Packers in the Divisional Round before losing to the eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in the conference title game.
