Packers Fans Sound Off

Updated Thursday -- Nov. 29, 2007 11 p.m.

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- 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.

Angry Packer fans ready to hit bars for Dallas game

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys, both 10-and-1, go head-to-head Thursday night for bragging rights and possibly homefield advantage in the postseason.

Behind center for Dallas, will be Burlington native Tony Romo. On the other side, as always, Wisconsin's answer to Elvis, Brett Favre.

But many Wisconsin fans can forget about watching the game at home.

The game will be shown only on the NFL Network and in Green Bay and Milwaukee. More than half-a-million other cable customers will have to park it in a bar with a satellite dish, visit friends with a dish or listen on the radio.

That's left plenty of Packer backers seriously peeved.

Bill Bessette of Madison says it's traumatic for fans who plan their life around the team's games. The game won't be shown on cable in Madison.

Dawn Harrod of Wausau is worried about her 95-year-old mother, who's an avid Packers fan but will miss the game.
