Matt Flynn threw four touchdown passes in the second half, Eddie Lacy ran a yard for the decisive score, and the Green Bay Packers rallied from a 23-point halftime deficit to beat the host Dallas Cowboys, 37-36, on Sunday. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw two interceptions in the game’s final 3 minutes. The first one, with the Cowboys in position to run out the clock, gave Green Bay a chance to take the lead, and Lacy delivered with a little more than a minute and a half left.
