Forgive Cowboys fans if they spend Sunday night a little flustered by the thought of playoff games from days past. More specifically, anyone rooting for Dallas may have the nightmare of their playoff game in Green Bay following the 2014 season. During that game, Dez Bryant famously caught a pass only to have said catch overturned and the Cowboys would subsequently lose the game.

The referee that day, Gene Steratore, will be making his return to a Cowboys game for the first time since that day.

It's pretty wild to think it's been that long since Steratore, who is one of the more recognizable refs in football, has been on the mic for a Cowboys game. But perhaps the league would simply prefer to keep him away from Dallas.

After all, things were pretty heated following the loss. It was the launching point for complaints about what people consider a catch. Every time Bryant has a significant play, we have to rehash the catch that was not a catch.

"Since that play, I don't believe they've been able to say it in a way that any of us understands yet," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said later in an interview.

At the time, Steratore said that Dez simply did not have possession long enough to qualify for a catch.
