NFL Week 9: Packers (5-3) Vs. Cowboys (1-6)

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones continues to insist that he won't fire Wade Phillips in the middle of the season. Jones' decision could prove to be an intelligent one, or it could prove to backfire in the organization's face if the Cowboys entirely quit on their lame-duck head coach. After getting beat up by the mediocre Jaguars last week, the Cowboys travel to Lambeau Field to face the Packers on Sunday Night Football. Here's a few facts, figures and trends about the two historic teams' series history, as well as up-to-date season stats for both squads.
