(MILWAUKEE) - Danny White passed for 217 yards and two touchdowns and ran 48 yards on a fake punt to set up another score, leading the Dallas Cowboys to a 28-7 victory over the Green Bay Packers. White completed 16 of 20 passes and directed ball-control touchdown drives of 70, 80, 90 and 48 yards. White passed five yards to Doug Cosbie for one touchdown and 20 yards to Drew Pearson for another, while Tony Dorsett and Robert Newhouse both scored on 1-yard runs for the Cowboys. The Packers, playing amid reports that club officials are close to firing Coach Bart Starr, slipped to 1-3 with their third successive defeat. Newhouse's touchdown with 1:07 left in the first half put the Cowboys ahead for good at 14-7. The Cowboys marched 70 yards in 17 plays and consumed eight minutes, 18 seconds on the drive, sparked by White passes of 19 and 15 yards to Tony Hill and 13 to Butch Johnson.
