Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the MVP of Green Bay’s Super Bowl triumph six years ago, produced yet another flawless display to hand his team a nail-biting 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys in a divisional playoff.

After squandering an 18-point lead they established during the second quarter, the Packers held off a thrilling Cowboys comeback with successive field goals by Mason Crosby.

On Sunday, the Packers will take on the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship game to decide which team reaches the Super Bowl while Pittsburgh will next lock horns with the New England Patriots after narrowly defeating Kansas City.

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 20 of 31 passes for 224 yards and running back Le’Veon Bell rushed for 170 yards on 30 carries, handing the Steelers a 18-16 triumph at Arrowhead Stadium.

On to the NFC title game! #GoPackGopic.twitter.com/ZuRbHEC2e4
