NFL Wildcard football has arrived, and the anticipation reaches its peak as the Packers clash with the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Featuring the dynamic duo of Jordan Love and Dak Prescott at the helm, brace yourselves for a thrilling showdown between two squads vying for a coveted Super Bowl opportunity.
With the Dallas Cowboys stepping into the game as 7-point favorites, our attention shifts to 2 Cowboys’ NFL player props that promise substantial value. Along with a player prop line on Jordan Love that could hit in the first half. Dive into the details to uncover the reasons behind the high expectations for Love, Ferguson, and Dowdle in this NFL Playoffs Wild Card clash.
Packers vs Cowboys Wild Card props
- Jordan Love over 9.5 rushing yards
- Jake Ferguson over 43.5 receiving yards
- Rico Dowdle over 18.5 rushing yards
Jake Ferguson DAL (TE) Receiving Yards – Over 43.5
Ferguson finds himself on the brink of surpassing expectations once again, with his average receiving yards per game standing at 44.8—0.3 yards higher than his Sunday over/under. In an impressive 47.1% of his appearances this season (eight out of 17 games), he has exceeded the 44.5 receiving yards mark.
Notably, Ferguson has consistently outpaced his average over/under by 6.5 receiving yards per game (44.8 compared to 38.3).
While registering a touchdown catch in just five of the 17 games played this year, it’s worth noting that Ferguson is 2nd on the team for RedZone targets at 23. A +145 line to score a TD on DraftKings betting splits should also be on your list of must-bet props on Sunday.

Jordan Love (QB) OVER 9.5 rush yards
The initial benchmark for Jordan Love’s rushing yards was set at 6.5, but the odds have already shifted, now standing at a slightly elevated 9.5. Nonetheless, our confidence in placing a wager on the Green Bay Packers quarterback remains steadfast. Throughout the 17 games played this season, Love has surpassed eight rushing yards 10 times. Adding to the intrigue, over the past three weeks, he has notched two rushing touchdowns.
While Love has been riding an insane heater since week 8 through the air, he doesn’t shy away from utilizing his legs. The looming threat of the Dallas Cowboys’ formidable pass rush potentially breaching his offensive line adds an element of unpredictability. As the season hangs in the balance, there’s a compelling likelihood that Love will be forced to showcase his scrambling abilities. Take OVER 8.5 yards BIG!

Rico Dowdle DAL (RB) Rushing Yards – Over 18.5
Not going to lie, this is a 100% gut-feeling play on Rico Dowdle. If you have bet on the NFL, you know that teams will always switch things up a bit in the playoffs. If Dallas is truly going to make a Super Bowl run, they need Tony Pollard healthy. Working Rico Dowdle in this Sunday against the Packers will not only throw off the Packer’s defense but provide rest to Pollard and make the Cowboys’ divisional opponent prepare for multiple backs.
