Favre Falls, Packers Fail 37-27

The bright side for Packers fans is knowing Aaron Rodgers can quarterback a solid game of football. But solid wasn't enough to get past Tony Romo and the Cowboys, reports the New York Times. And worse, Rodgers was on the field because the unthinkable had happened to Wisconsin's favorite ironman: Brett Favre was knocked from the game.

While Favre's separated shoulder and bruised elbow were examined, the Cowboys racked up two touchdowns by Patrick Crayton and 156 receiving yards from Terrell Owens. Rodgers threw 201 yards and a touchdown in just over two quarters, but two interceptions by Favre had already done some damage, and the determined Cowboys walked away with a 37-27 win and an 11-1 record.
