Any time an opposing team’s player dances on the Cowboys’ midfield star logo before a game, you know it will catch the attention of Dallas fans and players.

The Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys will face off against each other on Sunday in one of the three Super Wild Card weekend matchups in the NFC. Packers CB Keisean Nixon is one of the key players the Cowboys will be looking to limit in the return game.

During warmups, Nixon did “a little Texas two-step” on the Cowboys’ star logo at midfield, according to USA TODAY Packers beat writer Ryan Wood.

The Cowboys will probably not take too kindly to Nixon doing that, as dancing on the star logo is disrespectful. Over the many years, we’ve seen Dallas players take exception to opponents not respecting the star. 

Who can forget when Terrell Owens was on the San Francisco 49ers many moons ago and stood at the star after scoring a touchdown? Dallas took exception to it. 

Fast forward to Sunday, and it seems like the Cowboys aren’t paying Nixon any mind, which is a good thing as they have bigger fish to fry. The best way to keep Nixon from celebrating again Sunday is to kick the ball away from him and for Dak Prescott to not turn over the football. 

Right after kickoff the Cowboys are still seven-point favorites and -340 on the moneyline on FanDuel Sportsbook over the upset-minded Packers.
