By JAIME ARON AP Sports Writer IRVING, Texas (AP) Tony Romo is coming off the first playoff win of his career and going into a game against his childhood hero, Brett Favre.

How cool is that? Romo isn't really saying.

As he's done all season, Romo is downplaying any excitement, leaving his biggest statements on the field when the Dallas Cowboys play at the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Romo grew up in Burlington, Wis., during the prime of Favre's career with the Green Bay Packers. Since Romo burst onto the NFL scene in 2006, he and Favre have become friends. They've gone head-to-head only once, in 2007, with Romo winning 37-27.
