Friday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE


Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

DETROIT (AP) -- Quarterback Brett Favre has set the stage for a showdown in Dallas. Favre led the Green Bay Packers to a Thanksgiving Day victory at Detroit that gave the team a record of 10-and-1 -- the same as the Dallas Cowboys who trounced the New York Jets yesterday. The Packers play in Dallas next Thursday in a game that could determine homefield advantage for the postseason playoffs.

DETROIT (AP) -- Cornerback and punt returner Charles Woodson was among the injured Packers in yesterday's game with the Lions. Woodson suffered a toe injury, although he jogged off the field to go get the toe X-rayed. He says the toe isn't broken but it hurt quite a bit. He says it's the big toe on his right foot, and it seems like the same injury that he once had to his other foot when he played for Oakland. He can't yet say if he'll be able to play in next Thursday's game in Dallas.

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones still wants NFL fans to pull the plug on cable TV, especially those who want to view next week's NFC showdown of 10-1 teams on the NFL Network. The Cowboys and Green Bay Packers both won on Thanksgiving Day, a week before they play for the outright lead in the National Football Conference. The NFL Network has been in a dispute with large cable providers who don't carry the network on a basic tier.
