Packers rally from 23 points down to defeat Cowboys

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.
