Packers win over Dallas saves season


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- In a miserable tailspin one week, solid playoff contenders the next.

That's life in the NFL for the Green Bay Packers, who might have saved their season with Sunday's 17-7 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

But the Packers know one big win won't mean much if they take a step backward in either of the two winnable games they'll play in an upcoming five-day stretch, home against San Francisco on Sunday and at Detroit on Thanksgiving.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy says outside linebacker Aaron Kampman, tight end Jermichael Finley and inside linebacker Brandon Chillar are expected to return from injuries. Defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins and wide receiver Greg Jennings have nagging injuries that could cost them practice time. Fullback John Kuhn broke his hand and his availability is unclear.
