The Dallas Cowboys' first challenge of this postseason will be to take on the NFL's hottest offense, facing the Green Bay Packers, who have won seven straight games and topped 30 points in five straight contests.

And according to Giants offensive lineman Justin Pugh, the Cowboys should be thankful for that matchup.

"They're lucky that we didn't go beat the Green Bay Packers," Pugh said Monday. "If we were going to come to Dallas, we were going to beat them (the Cowboys) a third time."

Not that the Giants, who handed the Cowboys two of their three losses during the regular season, ever got that chance, because of Sunday night’s debacle at Lambeau Field in the NFC wild-card game.
