With a tough road game hours away from starting, the Green Bay Packers have provided supporters with great news.

Along with Alexander, one more player will return to action at AT&T Stadium.

Youngster Christian Watson, the second-year WR, has also been moved to active status. With the NFC divisional round place at stake, the Cowboys will have a challenging game. Who will come out on top?

Earlier this week, the Packers announced that Alexander had hurt his ankle in a “freak injury.” With the wild-card game closing in, he was reported as questionable to participate in the fixture. However, mere hours before the game, the Packers released a list of active players.

Fans rejoiced in finding Alexander’s amongst the expected names. Along with him, the 24-year-old WR Watson will also make a return. The youngster has seen no action after being injured against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Week 13 game.

With the team and the bench bolstered, the Packers will be a tough test for the Cowboys. Even though the Cowboys are considered favorites in this matchup, the game got more demanding for them. Can the Cowboys enjoy the advantage of the home stadium?

Both Dak Prescott and Jordan Love have been sensational this season. But the burden of expectations will be heavier on the home team. Despite being a generational talent, Prescott has been unable to deliver the Super Bowl to the Cowboys.

On the other hand, in the absence of Aaron Rodgers, Love has stepped up and wrested the mantle. In his first-ever year as the No. 1 QB, the 25-year-old has surpassed all expectations. So, this game could be a legacy-defining one for both the QBs.
