The last year Green Bay lost its first four home games.
Number of NFL players -- new Cowboys wide receiver Quincy Morgan -- with a touchdown catch of at least 70 yards in each of the past three seasons. "The Cowboys were lucky to win 10 games last season," Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Randy Galloway wrote this week, echoing the sentiments of anyone who knows a lick about football. At the rate they're going this season, they'll be lucky to win eight after getting outslugged by the Giants two weeks ago and outlasted by the Steelers last week, both at home.
Maybe a trip to Green Bay, where the Packers have yet to win this season, will be just the trick. Green Bay has averaged just 15 points per game in three home games this season, as opposed to 31 points per game in three road games.
The Packers exploded for 38 points against the Lions last week on the road. Coach Mike Sherman called the plays in place of offensive coordinator Tom Rossley, who was recovering from an angioplasty to clear a blocked coronary artery. Among them was a fairly sweet halfback pass from Ahman Green to Donald Driver. Sherman may call some more plays today, even though Rossley will be back on the sideline.
