Favre Hurt; Packers Fall in Big D 37-27 to Cowboys

Favre tackled and hurt on the play

Tony Romo fired four touchdown passes, Brett Favre got hurt, and the Cowboys held off the Packers 34-27 in a key NFC showdown at Texas Stadium.  Patrick Crayton hauled in a pair of TD receptions, and Terrell Owens and Anthony Fasano also caught scoring passes, as Dallas built a 27-10 lead and held on to improve to an NFC leading 11-and-1.  Romo finished 19-of-30 for 309 yards, four TDs and an interception. 

T.O. had seven grabs for a game-high 156 yards for the Cowboys, who clinched a playoff berth with the win.  Favre left in the second quarter with an elbow injury and did not return for Green Bay, which fell to 10-and-2.  Aaron Rodgers came in and completed 18-of-26 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown in relief.  Ryan Grant ran 14 times for 94 yards and two scores for the Packers in the setback.
