Dallas Cowboys 17, Green Bay Packers (0-1-1) 14
PRE-SEASON - Saturday August 9th 1980 (at Dallas)
(DALLAS) - Glenn Carano's three-yard touchdown toss to tight end Doug Cosbie early in the fourth quarter wrapped up a 17-14 pre-season victory for the Cowboys over the Packers. The Cowboys, opening a season of transition with Danny White taking over the No. 1 quarterback spot from the retired Roger Staubach, rallied in the second half after trailing through the first two quarters, 7-3. Tony Dorsett scored Dallas' go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter on a 1-yard run to climax a drive set up by a fumbled punt return. Carano's touchdown throw to Cosbie gave Dallas a 17-7 lead, a margin that was trimmed by a 1-yard plunge from Green Bay's Nate Simpson with less than five minutes to play.
