Cowboys win first ever game in Green Bay

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - On an uncharacteristically quiet night for Terrell Owens, the Dallas Cowboys leaned on their defense and running game - then unleashed little-known wide receiver Miles Austin to put away a 27-16 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.

Marion Barber ran for a career-high 142 yards and a touchdown, and rookie Felix Jones added a 60-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.

Austin, a backup who plays mostly on special teams, sealed the win with a 52-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter.

Tony Romo was 17-of-30 for 260 yards and Owens was held to two catches for 17 yards as Dallas (3-0) joined the reigning Super Bowl champion New York Giants as the NFC's only undefeated teams.

This marks the first time in the franchise's history that the Cowboys have won in Green Bay.
