Dec 15, 2013 8:32 PM

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - 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 1 1-2 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 victory keeps the Packers (7-6-1) a half-game behind the Bears (8-6) with two games left to play. It also adds to the pressure on Detroit, which hosts Baltimore on Monday night.

Green Bay quarterback and Chico native Aaron Rodgers could possibly return next week after missing his sixth straight game.
