The Dallas Cowboys struck quickly Sunday, but the catalyst of the action was not the Cowboy offense. Ten seconds after Ray Horton intercepted a pass from Green Bay Packer quarterback Blair Kiel and returned it 65 yards for a touchdown, Issiac Holt intercepted another pass that set up a 13-yard touchdown pass play from Troy Aikman to Jay Novacek. The touchdowns, which came 73 seconds apart, sent the Cowboys on their way to a 20-17 victory.
