LAST MEETING: Dallas won the last meeting, which is no surprise considering the Cowboys are 9-1 in their last 10 games against Green Bay. On Nov. 14, 1999, Dallas beat visiting Green Bay 27-13.

The Packers trailed by just a touchdown in the final moments but former Packer George Teague intercepted Brett Favre and ran it back 95 yards for the clinching touchdown.

The Packers were in position to force overtime with a late rally. Behind quarterback Jason Garrett, the Cowboys took a 20-3 lead with 12:33 left in the fourth quarter on a 47-yard field goal.

With 3:47 remaining, Favre hit Antonio Freeman for a 28-yard touchdown pass to cap an 88-yard scoring march. Green Bay's defense made a stand to force a punt, and the Packers cut the deficit to 20-13 on a 31-yard field goal by Ryan Longwell.

Green Bay's Fred Vinson then recovered the onside kick to give the Packers the ball and a chance to force overtime. The Packers eventually reached the Dallas 25 in the final seconds, but Favre's last pass was hauled in by Teague.
