Dallas Cowboys (5-4) 27, Green Bay Packers (4-5) 13
Sunday November 14th 1999 (at Dallas)
(DALLAS) - Maybe losing superstars Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin was the jolt the Dallas Cowboys needed. Backup quarterback Jason Garrett snowed the poise and accuracy of Aikman, and safety George Teague helped the defense withstand a typical late game charge by Brett Favre to give Dallas a 27-13 victory over Green Bay. Playing without their Big Three for the first time in a decade, the Cowboys ended a two-game losing streak and leaped from third in the NFC East to a first-place tie with Washington and the New York Giants, both losers Sunday. The Packers lost their third straight and fourth in five games to fall below .500 in the second half of a season for the first time since 1994. This was their eighth straight loss at Texas Stadium. Dallas, which had blown leads of 17, 14 and 10 points in losing three of its last four games, looked to be on its way to another one despite having led 20-3 with 10 minutes, 40 seconds left. Favre shook off three quarters of missed opportunities — both by him and his receivers — to throw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Freeman with 6:53 to go, then set up Ryan Longwell's 31-yard field goal with 1:21 to play to close Green Bay to 20-13. The Packers recovered the onside kick and moved to the Dallas 25 with 21 seconds left before Teague intercepted a pass and coasted 95 yards for a touchdown.
