Cowboys’ nightmare season continues: Time to fire Wade Phillips?

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Aaron Rodgers threw for 289 yards and three touchdowns, Brandon Jackson scored twice and the Green Bay Packers beat the disintegrating Dallas Cowboys 45-7 on Sunday night.

It was a new low point in a lost season for the Cowboys (1-7), who came into 2010 with Super Bowl aspirations. And it's sure to kick off a new round of speculation about the future of coach Wade Phillips, despite recent statements from team owner Jerry Jones that a midseason firing was unlikely.

James Jones caught eight passes for 123 yards and a touchdown for the Packers (6-3), who have won three straight. Green Bay's Clay Matthews added a final dose of embarrassment in the fourth quarter, picking off a pass from Jon Kitna and running it back 62 yards for a touchdown.

Former Lufkin Panther Dez Bryant scored the only touchdown for the Cowboys. It came with 16 seconds left in the second quarter—Kitna passes to Bryant for two yards and the score.

The Cowboys are expected to hold a press conference at 4 Monday afternoon.
