What a year it has been for the New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
Brady has undergone a re-emergence and taken the Patriots from a struggling 2-2 with talk of his demise to the #1 seed in the AFC and a 13-3 record.
Meanwhile Romo has lead the Cowboys to a winning season for the first time in three years and has them looking like Super Bowl contenders.
The two quarterbacks have had landmark years and both are now preparing for the play-offs with the Patriots on a bye week and the Cowboys set to host the Detroit Lions in Sunday's wildcard match.
However with the conclusion of the regular season on Sunday, the match ups for next season have now been confirmed and each team know who they will be facing home and away next year.

Despite the heavily prestigious career Brady has had in the NFL so far, he is set to take part in an historic occasion next season.
The Cowboys will at some point host the Patriots next season and it will be Brady's first ever visit to the AT&T Stadium.
The Patriots haven't visited Dallas since 2007 when the Cowboys were playing at the old Texas Stadium.
The two have clashed just once since then in 2011 in a game at Gillette Stadium with the Patriots winning 20-16.
Next year's clash could always be the only trip to the AT&T Stadium for Brady, but it will be a true showdown of quality players - if the Cowboys can hold on to Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray.
The schedules for next year won't be announced until the Spring but we already know some quite big matches that will happen next year.
The Patriots will face the Denver Broncos in the regular season once again but for the first time since 2011, the regular season clash between them will be in Denver.
The Cowboys will welcome several of this years play-off teams next year including the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers whilst having to visit the Green Bay Packers.
This years top two seeds in the NFC will go head to head next year as the Packers will host the Seahawks.
There will be a New York derby as the New York Jets will technically host the New York Giants at the MetLife Stadium for the first time since 2011.
Everyone will be eager to see both teams next year in order to see how the Jets can recover after firing head coach Rex Ryan today and to see if Giants star Odell Beckham Jr can improve on his phenomenal rookie year.
