  • Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy (27) finds open field as teammate Green Bay Packers tight end Ryan Taylor (82) blocks Dallas Cowboys defensive ends Everette Brown (71) and George Selvie (99) during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013, in Arlington, Texas.
ARLINGTON, Texas — Matt Flynn threw four touchdown passes in the second half, Eddie Lacy had the winning score on a 1-yard plunge and the Green Bay Packers matched the biggest comeback in franchise history, rallying from 23 points down at halftime to beat the Dallas Cowboys 37-36 Sunday.

Tony Romo had two interceptions in the final 3 minutes, the first one giving Green Bay a chance for the go-ahead score with the Cowboys in position to run out the clock with a 36-31 lead. Lacy scored with just over 1½ minutes left.

Playing on the same field where they won the 2011 Super Bowl, the Packers matched the 1982 team, which rallied past the Los Angeles Rams after trailing by 23.

The Packers (7-6-1) kept their playoff hopes alive with Aaron Rodgers possibly returning next week.

The Cowboys (7-7) stayed a game behind Philadelphia in the NFC East.
