It was a comeback for the ages in Dallas as the Packers rally past the Cowboys 37-36 to keep their playoff hopes alive.  Green Bay was dead in the water at the half, trailing 26-3.  Matt Flynn tossed four 2nd half touchdowns and Eddie Lacy punched it in from 1 yard out with 1:31 left in the 4th quarter to give Green Bay the lead. It was an epic collapse for the Cowboys and QB Tony Romo who threw an interception to Sam Shields and then Tramon Williams clinched it with another pick on the 2nd play after Green Bay took the lead. Flynn finished with 299 yards and four TDs along with one interception.  Lacy passed the 1,000 yard mark on the season with 141 yards on the ground. Green Bay is now 7-6-1.  They can make the post season by winning the NFC North by winning their final two games and havingDetroit lose at least one time.  Green Bay hosts Pittsburgh in their final regular season home game at Lambeau next Sunday.


The 23 point comeback matches the greatest comeback in franchise history.  On September 12, 1982 Lynn Dickey rallied Green Bay past the Rams 28-23 after trailing 23-0 in the first half.
