Packers rally from 23 points down to defeat Cowboys

With their season on the line, Green Bay picks up incredible road victory.
The Green Bay Packers needed a victory over the Cowboys on Sunday to keep their playoff hopes realistic. 

Without Aaron Rodgers playing in the game, hopes seemed lukewarm at best.  Then, the team had a flat first half, falling behind 26-3 to a revved up Cowboys squad.

Whatever head coach Mike McCarthy told the team at halftime, it worked.

Green Bay scored 34 points in a wild second-half rally to defeat the Cowboys, 37-36.  With the win, Green Bay improved to 7-6-1 on the season, still a half-game behind the first place Bears (8-6) in the NFC North division.

Matt Flynn threw four touchdown passes, all in the second half, and Tony Romo threw two costly fourth-quarter interceptions.  The first, to Sam Shields, set up Eddie Lacy's go-ahead touchdown.  The second, to Tramon Williams, sealed the win for the Packers.

Green Bay returns to action next Sunday, hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers at 3:25 in a game you can see on WFRV, Local 5.
