Dallas Improves To 11-1, NFC Top Team

By  | 

IRVING -- The Dallas Cowboys have control of the NFC following a 37-27 triumph over the Green Bay Packers.

Tony Romo threw four touchdown passes to help the 11-and-1
Cowboys earn their sixth straight win while moving ahead of the
Packers for the NFC lead. Romo hit Patrick Crayton for a four-yard
TD that put the Cowboys ahead 37-24 midway through the fourth
quarter.

Romo set a team record for touchdown passes in a season when he threw a scoring strike to Crayton in the first quarter. Romo has 33
TD's tosses this year, surpassing Danny White's old mark.

The Packers finished the game without quarterback Brett Favre, who left after injuring his right elbow in the second quarter. Favre was just 5-of-14 for 56 yards and two interceptions before leaving.

Aaron Rodgers played well after replacing Favre, hitting 18 of
his 26 passes for 201 yards and one touchdown for the 10-and-2
Packers.
