Flynn leads historic comeback in Dallas

DALLAS - The chips looked to be stacked against the Green Bay Packers at the end of the first half. The Packers trailed 26-3, DeMarco Murray was running wild for Dallas, and there was no Aaron Rodgers to bail out the Packers offense.

But the second half belonged to Matt Flynn and a Packers team determined to rally.

Flynn threw four touchdown passes in the second half and the Packers matched a franchise record for comebacks in a 37-36 win that left Packers nation buzzing.

The Cowboys inexplicably continued to throw the ball with a lead in the second half, leading to a key interception by Sam Shields in the fourth quarter that set up the game winning score from Eddie Lacy.

Dallas got the ball back with a minute and a half to play, but Tony Romo was intercepted by Tramon Williams, cementing the comeback only matched by the 1982 team who rallied from a 23-point deficit in a game against the Rams.

With the win, the Packers are 7-6-1, a half game behind the Chicago Bears, who also won Sunday.
