Cowboys blow 23-point lead as Packers prevail

Arlington, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Eddie Lacy's 1-yard touchdown run with 1:31 to play completed an epic Green Bay comeback as the Packers got past the Dallas Cowboys, 37-36.

Trailing by 23 points to start the second half, Green Bay scored touchdowns on its first five possessions of the final 30 minutes, while Tony Romo had another meltdown in the fourth quarter.

With the victory, Green Bay (7-6-1) has managed to stay alive in the chase for the NFC North crown thanks to consecutive wins despite signal-caller Aaron Rodgers still on the sideline as he recovers from a fractured collarbone.

The Packers sit in third place in the NFC North, behind Chicago (8-6) and Detroit (7-6). Detroit hosts the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.

Matt Flynn, Rodgers' replacement under center, threw for 299 yards and four touchdowns with an interception on 26-of-39 passing, with Lacy finishing the game with 141 yards on 21 carries and a score while adding four catches for 30 yards.

Dallas (7-7), meanwhile, stays a game back of Philadelphia for first place in the NFC East, as the Eagles lost to the Vikings on Sunday.

Romo looked strong for much of the game and went 29-for-48 for 358 yards and two touchdowns overall, but his final two possessions ended in interceptions. The first one led to Lacy's go-ahead score and his second sealed the victory for Green Bay.

DeMarco Murray had another strong game for Dallas, carrying the ball 18 times for 134 yards and a score along with four catches for 19 yards.
