NEW YORK � September 22, 2008 - The Dallas Cowboys 27-16 victory over the Green Bay Packers on "NBC Sunday Night Football," won the night while facing strong competition from the Primetime Emmy Awards broadcast on ABC and the last game at Yankee Stadium on ESPN.

It was the fourth highest overnight rating in the two-year-plus history of "Sunday Night Football" and 5 percent over last season's Cowboys-Bears game (13.7/22 on 9/23/07).
