GREEN BAY OFFENSE CLICKS FOR 480 YARDS

PACKERS 41, COWBOYS 20

Published October 25, 2004

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Mike Sherman has found his calling, and the Packers have rediscovered their rhythm.

With their coach-general manager directing the offense for the second straight game, Green Bay scored on its first seven possessions to thrash the Cowboys.

The Packers snapped a three-game losing streak at Lambeau Field and Brett Favre beat Dallas for just the second time in 10 tries despite jamming his right wrist early in the game.

Sherman called the game with offensive coordinator Tom Rossley, still weak from heart surgery, offering advice from the coaches box.

Favre threw two touchdowns, Ahman Green ran for 163 yards and his first two TDs since the season opener, Ryan Longwell kicked two field goals and the halfback option produced points for the second straight week.

"It's not easy, it's a grind," Sherman said. "It helps that Tom Rossley did a great job in a supporting cast. The halfback pass was his call."

Cowboys safety Roy Williams apologized for Dallas' dismal defense.

"Sometimes we don't fight," he said. "That's discouraging. It's sad. There are no excuses for the way we played."
