In spectacular comeback, Packers defeat Cowboys 37-36

AP

In an unbelievable rally, the visiting Packers stormed back from a 23-point halftime deficit to stun the Cowboys 37-36 at AT&T Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

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 Sunday night.

From a standings standpoint, the defeat keeps Dallas (7-7) from drawing even with Philadelphia (8-6) in the NFC East.

However, this could be a setback with much greater meaning and impact for the Cowboys.

For Dallas, this marks yet another lamentable performance by its defense, which allowed five second-half TDs to Green Bay.

Also, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was intercepted on each of Dallas’ last two drives — once with Dallas holding a 36-31 lead and trying to run out the clock, and once with Dallas trying to put together a last-ditch comeback in the final minute.

On the first interception, Romo eluded pressure from the rush, then threw over the middle for Miles Austin. However, Packers cornerback Sam Shields intercepted the pass — and it’s a good thing for Green Bay that he did, for Shields was the last line of defense.

The pick gave the Packers the ball at midfield, and from there, they embarked on a seven-play march ending in Eddie Lacy’s one-yard TD run with 91 seconds left to give Green Bay the final margin of victory.

On the second play of Dallas’ ensuing drive, Romo was picked again, this time by Packers cornerback Tramon Williams, and Green Bay had secured a most memorable triumph.

Packers quarterback Matt Flynn threw for 182 yards and four touchdowns in the final two quarters, connecting with wideout Jordy Nelson (13 yards), tight end Andrew Quarless (three yards), running back James Starks (11 yards) and wideout James Jones (three yards) for scores. On three separate occasions, the Packers put together 80-yard drives ending in Flynn TD passes.

The Packers’ out-of-nowhere closing kick came after a horrid first half, one that saw the Cowboys build a 26-3 lead. The Cowboys’ offense was far too much for the Packers’ defense to handle in all areas, and the Cowboys’ defense — picked apart six days earlier at Chicago — stood up for itself, limiting Green Bay to just a 57-yard field goal.

Frankly, the Cowboys looked home free as the third quarter started. Then, on the first play of the second half, Lacy rumbled for 60 yards off left tackle. Three plays later, Flynn hit Nelson for six points. The Packers had the quick touchdown they needed.

As it turns out, they were far from finished.

Now, the attention turns to how the Cowboys respond after being caught near the wire. Thus begins a long, long week of discussion of Romo’s legacy, of the defense’s shortcomings, of what it all means to a franchise that hasn’t won a division title since 2009.

Still, with a win Sunday at Washington, Dallas will have a shot at the NFC East title no matter how Philadelphia fares against Chicago next Sunday night. If the Cowboys win the next their two games, they win the division.

First, though, they need to shake this one off.

  1. Kiss the playoffs goodbye Dallas. If you couldn’t beat Matt Flynn lead team, zero chance vs Kirk Cousins and the Redskins. Jerrah should give Romo another extension since he believes in him so much! #WashingtonwilleliminateDallasAgain

  2. Like I predicted (and you all gave me like 89 “thumbs down”)… Matt Flynn took apart Dallas. But thanks Jerry Jones for making Romo your franchise QB.

    I also said Flynn was a system QB and the Raiders should have kept him and let him get in a rhythm. Got lots of thumbs down for that too.

    PFT universe… how you like me now?

  3. Our Defense sucks and we’re spotting a good Offense 23 in their house….w/o Jolly in the 2nd half?

    Yeah – I totally saw this friggin’ out of the jaws of despair comeback victory coming.

    Eagles are 8-6. Cowboys are 7-7.

  6. Jason Garrett needs to be canned. Horrible clock management and simply cannot motivate a quality team to perform on a consistent basis.

  7. Just horrible game management. Romo was rattled after that first near INT. But cmon now, 2nd down, 2:50 left and Green Bay only had ONE TIMEOUT! Run the ball!

    Time to get rid of Garrett.

    Who are you again?

  9. Romo is golden for NFL football follies. Why pundits still believe that guy is an NFL quarterback is one of the all time mysteries. And thank you, Jerry Jones. Please remain GM of that franchise for the next two decades. You’re Al Davis, but worse. I can already see you in the press box at 91. Not a pretty sight.

  10. You know how if you get a bunch of women together for a certain amount of time their menses cycles start to synchronize? Well, same thing with the Cowboys and Oh No Romo blowing games in December. You can set your clocks to it every year.

  11. I think this falls on Jason garret more than anyone. The packers couldn’t stop Murray, yet all the idiot ginger wanted to do was put the ball in the hands of the biggest choke artist on the team. What a pathetic excuse of a team from top to bottom.

  12. I’m embarrassed to be a lifelong Dallas fan who lived on the same street as Too Tall and Hollywood. This was a choke of epic proportions. Maybe we could bring in the Trinity Euless High School defense for the rest of the season.

  13. How do you not run the ball?!? Literally running the ball in the 3rd and 4th quarter probably doesn’t give the packers enough time. Then after dez makes a spectacular play you run then do a play action which leads to a pick?!?

    Might be the worst coaching/play calling I’ve seen in a long time.

  15. Watching the Cowboys choke in epic fashion was very entertaining. That must have been one hell of a halftime speech from McCarthy because the 180 that Green Bay pulled in the second half, it was like a different team. Shield’s pick was great, but I can’t believe he wasn’t flagged for chucking the ball into the stands from the middle of the field. Lacy is turning into the next great NFL back.

    As fun as it was to see Dallas implode, there is still some dumb thing on the way from Jerry Jones where he attempts to polish this turd.

    Lol, Jerry Jones is too arrogant to fire his hand picked henchman. As a saints fan, him scapegoating Ryan is the best thing thats happened to us since we won the SB.

  17. I have to admit I’d given up at the half. Amazing win for the Packers – with a little more luck they’ll take the division as Rodgers returns next week.

    Can’t get too excited, though – our defense is horrid.

  18. wow, amazing comeback back the Pack. At half I thought the season was over, once ago we are still alive. Lets get Rodgers back, and win this damn division.

  19. What makes anyone think that this team is going to washington and winning. Not in their dna. Flawed def scheme. Coupled with a pass happy off coordinator does not win this time of year. This team needs an enema frOm top to bottom. Jerry will talk tomorrow and it will be as painful as ever to listen to. Just shut up and bring in real football people to run the show. Billion dollar team with ten cent management. This season is over in two games. Guranteed. There will be no getting hot and making a run.

  20. Redskins fans should be cheering for the Cowboys at this point. At the rate Dallas’ D is going, and facing an intact quality team, they could easily surrender more points than the 1940 Skins did to the Bears in the Championship, and steal away the playoff record for most points allowed in one game. 90 may well be in reach.

  21. “Still, with a win Sunday at Washington, Dallas will have a shot at the NFC East title no matter how Philadelphia fares against Chicago next Sunday night. If the Cowboys win the next their two games, they win the division.”

    That makes no sense.

    Eagles are 8-6. Cowboys are 7-7.”

    If the cowboys win out, it’s something called “owning the tiebreaker”.

    “Yeah, people thought we were done, but we weren’t.” – Raji (dumb piano music).

  23. If this team fails to make the postseason again, its time to scrap the whole program from top to bottom. Ive been a supporter of Romo’s, but its become damn near impossible to defend his play in situations like these. With all the questions he faces day in and day out, its become the self-fulfilling prophecy. Too much pressure and scrutiny for any person to succeed in, time to move on.

  24. I think it’s great that all the top teams in the NFC North are all ferociously battling down to the wire for a coveted playoff berth. We have meaningful teams playing meaningful football.

    And then there are the Vikings.

  25. Start cranking out the excuses Romo apologists, tell us all about his fantasy stats and all his (non-December) 4th quarter comebacks.

  26. NFC East is horrendous. This coming from an Eagles fan. We should substitute our division winner for one of the wild card teams for that playoff spot. Neither of these losers should be in the playoffs.

  27. I was so wrong. I thought they had no chance. I was hoping they would put Tolzien in for the second half. I fear that it may be entirely possible that Mike McCarthy knows more about football than I do.

    Regardless of what team you cheer for you have to admit that it’s pretty pathetic to go back and put together a list to back up a post like this guy did

  29. THIS WAS TRULY A MIRACLE WIN ! PRAISE JESUS CHRIST THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD ! WINS LIKE THIS ONE SPARK SUPER BOWL RUNS ! IF AARON RODGERS COMES BACK AND PLAYS WELL AND GETS HOT THE PACKERS WILL SHUT UP ALL THE HATER TROLLS FOR GOOD THIS SEASON. GO PACK GO !

  30. I was wrong twice today, thought both the vikes and packers would lose. But, in the end, they will both be losers. The vikes in two weeks and the packers when they have to play someone other than Dallas.

  31. I feel bad for Romo. He is a decent QB. He shouldn’t have to keep throwing in a game like this. It is the coaching staff’s fault. Its more messed up that they are trying to blame him for the loss. Under no circumstances should they have been throwing at all in most of the 2nd half. Murray was doing well. To single out one play or whatever is just dumb. I blame Beasley too cause he wasn’t even trying for that ball. As long as the Cowboys looked for a decent QB after Aikman its nice to finally have someone like Romo which should be enough but our coaches are absolute crap. You laugh now Washington but you’re well on your way to being in the same position. HTTwhat what. (yes, that.) And its a shame while we fight with the Skins, we’re fighting about who’s worse and not the best. Skins won this year. Regardless of next week.

    And I don’t care for the Packers.

    Get a life.

  35. C’mon you dummies, Green Bay didn’t WIN the game, whoever made the calls on Dallas offense LOST the game for them.

  36. Please Skins, if you can just play the spoiler next week I will forgive your terrible play this season and look forward to next.

    Just beat Dallas. That’s all I’m asking. PLEASE

    You’re smart. So did you. It should be “We’re waiting”. That is also how you are supposed to use quotation marks. Today’s lesson is now over.

  39. To choke like that, winning 26-3 at halftime, at home, with the playoffs on the line against a QB who has been cut by two losing teams this year….Epic.

  40. Ugh. Crushing loss for Dallas fan. And at home.

    Let me just say this, the offense put up 36 points in Dallas. That should be enough. Stop blaming Romo because the defense couldn’t hold a 23 point half time lead against a back up QB.

    Okay, onto licking my wounds after the Patriots loss in Miami. Credit to the Dolphins. Great game by them in all phases, minus the snap to face. Tannehill is great QB.

    Go Patriots!

  41. contra74 if ur smart enough to notice that u should b smart enough to admit the packers pulled off a big win that might of made ur shooter pucker up a little bit.

  42. The Packers have the rest of the NFL right where they want them. In February, they’ll be celebrating their 14th NFL Championship. I can feel it.

    Oh, and the Vikings will still be in last place.

  43. How do you not feed Murray in the second half? He was shredding the defense and would have effectively killed the clock. Romo had some crippling interceptions, but correct play calling after building a 23-point lead would have avoided those situations.

  44. Interesting Stat: America’s Team is undefeated in the new Cowboy’s Stadium, including a SuperBowl victory! Hint: It’s not the Cowboy’s!

    The Packers are truly America s team.
    There were more fans in Dallas cheering for the Pack
    ———————————————
    Not a fan of either team but I was impressed by the Packer fans making so much noise so far from home.

  46. This site would be awesome if we could phase out the morons posting nonsense and just talk football. Comments are otherwise just a glorified troll section for all the lowlifes with self esteem issues. PFT, do something already ! I can find headlines elsewhere !

  47. Didn’t Jerrah fire Wade after an embarrassing loss to the Pack?

    I feel sorry for the players being under such incompetent coaches and management.

  48. Great comeback by the Pack! Jarrah Jones needs to just coach next year and get it over with. Maybe then he will hire some people that can help Dallas!

  49. The Packers still keeping their hopes alive, after nearly drowning. I didn’t see that coming, but luckily was proven wrong.

    I am glad I am not a Cowboy fan. They got to feel sick to their stomachs after something like that.

  50. I didn’t fully believe in this Tony Romo December thing even though the numbers are all there backing it up. After watching these two losses this December, I have no doubt when the pressure is on the guy is going to fold.

  51. What I wanna know is, where is Americas Team is Gods Team?? That troll was saying all week how overrated Rodgers is, and my response was that Romo was the biggest choker. Looks like my point is backed up by facts, whereas you’re just a bumbling idiot who says stuff that makes no sense.

  52. The only thing better than watching another Cowboys collapse is reading the comments about another Cowboys collapse!

  53. I haven’t seen such an epic failure in playing calling since Childress was the vikings coach, when he ran AP about 4 times in the second half against GB after AP gained around 100 yds in the first half.

  54. As a life-long Packer fan – there was some justice in the victory today after Dallas knocked GB out of the playoffs three years in a row in the 1990s and when Jason Garrett as a backup QB beat GB on Thanksgiving.

    About all we had before that was the Ice Bowl victory to talk about.

  55. I thought the Cowboys stadium was very nice to look at today. Why are all these Cowboy’s fans upset? It’s such a wonderful place to go and watch football. Jerry got his money’s worth. Didn’t you like making him richer? It seems he’s a good business/sales man. Over promise and under deliver. That’s how you stay rich. What did PT Barnum say???

  56. When is Jerry Jones going to wake up and realize
    that Tony Romo will NEVER win a super bowl for the Cowboys….the guy just isn’t a top notch QB.

  57. Great win for the Packers today. Hopefully GB can play with that intensity it displayed in the 2nd half. Have not seen that for a while.

    As a Packer fan, I can certainly admit the Dallas playcalling played a major part of the victory.

  58. I’m gonna go the other way on this loss. Bear with a minute. Think about this, Jerry Jones is what?, eighty years old? I mean how many more of these losses can his heart really take? I think Garrett is trying to put this man in his grave.

  59. This has to be the worst Team in the NFL.

    Auburn Tigers could easily run 45-55 points on their defense.

    And I doubt their offense could beat the Alabama Crimson Tides

    That Romo guy sucks big time.

    How the hell do you get beat by back-up quarterbacks two games in row.

    They looked like the “Dallas Brokeback Mountain Cowboys’ today.

    And why are they America’s Team again? Who’s damn idea was this?

  60. Contra74’s ignorance is amusing. He makes me laugh.

    I am surprised he had enough kleenex to wipe the tears away so he could see the keys.

    It must suck when your only joy in football is to hope a good team loses every week.

    Jerrah turned 71 in October. He’s younger than I.

  62. I’m a diehard Viking fan but I’m shocked by some of the comments by Viking fans. The Packers showed real heart today and that’s something I wish the Vikes would do more often. Unfortunately our franchise is famous for choking and I think Vike fans saw Romo choke today and it brought back some painful memories for us (2009, 1998, 2003, 2001 etc.). If our team was run better we would be more like the Packers and more successful. The only time it seems we get excited is for beating GB. I hope Minnesota will hire better people and maybe we’ll win more games like this instead of loosing so much.

  63. LOL !!!
    ha ha ha ha ha!!
    I reiterate what I said over the summer, thanks cowgirls for signing that loser romeo or whatever his same is. it guarantees laughs for years to come !

  64. I was confused at Dallas will win division if they win their next two games at first, but they play the Eagles on Week 17 for the last game of the regular season.

  65. The pressure is definitely on the cowboys again, at the end of the season. The eagles won’t even worry about the Chicago game and will focus only on the Dallas game, I can guarantee you that much. The thing is, Dallas has to beat a redskins team that is capable of beating them. It’s definitely a trap game, and I after tonight’s performance, I just don’t think they’re up to it. The cowboys need to hurry up because that window is getting ready to sl shut.

  66. One of the best posts on here was by tarkentin…who had some nice things to say about the character of the Packers….calling out idiots like moonoverlambeau and the even bigger idiot, pft poet….who, clearly, seems to possess nothing more than a grade school education…..resorting to bully comments just to garner attention. To you, pft poet, and other subjective commentors, post responses that are reasonably intelligent with some facts, instead of wasting other people’s time with petulant and immature comments.

  67. As a Packer fan, I’ve seen and remember many games when the Vikings handed it to the Packers….mostly in the 70’s and 80’s….and always respected their teams, because of how they played football, coached by a great Hall of Fame coach in Bud Grant. Most NFL teams that are successful, have a proven system and allows them to remain consistently good by sticking to their overall philosophy….teams like the Steelers, Patriots, Packers and Colts…..to name a few teams. This Packer team is not a great team by no stretch but until they are officially eliminated from the playoffs, it’s OK to have hope….and a chance…..and that is all good fans can ask for.

  68. It seems to me that any NFL defense defending a 23 point lead at halftime would be moxy enough to hold that lead through two measily quarters against a second string quarterback that nobody wanted as their starter.how did it get so close that Romo had to be the hero in the last minutes to save Dallas,sure he threw the ints in the final minutes but the DEFENSE gave up 34 points in two quarters,that my friends is the real daggar to the Cowboys heart,not Romo or his coach,the defense in the second half sucked as much as the Packers defense did in the first half.what a game,great win for a team who should get Rodgers back for this weeks game.

  69. Romo will fade most of the heat ~ that’s to be expected. But the Pack scored 34 second half points when Romo wasn’t even on the field. So Romo chokes with two INT’s ~ and this gives the defense a pass? Dallas’ problem is systemic ~ it starts with the Jones Boys and and runs all the way through the franchise. The biggest fault in Dallas is Jerry’s deep personal belief that he can’t make a mistake ~ ~ that his decisions are infallible. How’s that working out for you, Jerry?

Philadelphia must finish a game ahead of Dallas, because if they finish tied, Dallas would have the better division record. If Dallas wins out (they will lose both), they win the division outright. The Eagles need Dallas to lose to Washington and win both of their own games (obviously Week 17 vs. Dallas) to win the division. It is that simple.

  76. Flynn is a good QB, I feel bad for Flynn’s bad fortune other then being on the Packers. Who can blame Seattle for cutting Flynn they liked the look of Wilson, and as the record shows it was a wise move. The Raiders are a team that abuses QB’s… like Doritos in-front of a 10 year old, there is no QB support (O line, receiver depth, or real running game). Buffalo spent no time letting Flynn catch on to their system, doomed to fail. Granted Flynn had a bad game against Detroit, however look at his record being on the Packers against mostly considerable above average playoff contenders (almost beat the pats in a shootout 2010, wrecked the lions in 2011, brought the Pack to a tie after a 17 point deficit against the Vikings in 2013, lost to lions thanksgiving 2013, beat the falcons 2013 and now cowboys 2013). That gives him 3 wins 2 losses and 1 tie, and if you take only games he has started for the Pack, he is 3-1. I will be glad to have Rodgers back, however I am always impressed by Flynn’s “Never give up” type of play which has worked very well with his time under the Packers helm.

  77. Matt Flynn with GB receivers in GB system, complete hero, with huge TD numbers and gigantic heroic wins.

    Matt Flynn outside of GB system, constantly getting beaten out by everybody in training camp, plays games and looks like garbage.

    Matt Flynn= system QB
    Packers=system QB
    therefore …
    Aaron Rodgers = system QB
    sorry cheeseheads, but its the truth …

  78. After almost 2 decades of being a loyal Cowboys fan, I think it is time to look elsewhere. I have watched the team win, and lose a lot.

    For me, it isn’t completely about W/L. I can take losing, which I have. I cannot take Jerry Jones any longer. I refuse to be associated with someone as idiotic as himself. He won’t hire a real talent evaluator, and plays with his franchise like he doesn’t care. Maybe he doesn’t?

    The entire Dallas team is bad. Bad coaching, bad playing. I have never seen a more poorly managed game from the top on down. I always believe players play, coaches coach. Players are ultimately responsible. Guess what – the guy who put the players together, Jones, is probably the biggest problem. He is the one who makes the decision to hire them.

    The Cowboys are just an incredible collection of people who cannot work well together. It is the exact opposite of what you want. I never understood why they are called “America’s Team” and it embarrasses me every time I hear it and every time they put them on national TV.

    I will not support this team with Jerry Jones still running it, even if they ever win a SB again. I want a team that has ownership and managerial class.

    Dallas fans – Stop going to games and padding jones’s pockets. He won’t get it unless it hits the bottom line, even then, probably not. I always held hope that jones would get it together, but it will never happen and that is pathetic. Zero pride.

    ex- Dallas fan – I won’t be the last.

  79. Okay AA Voltron, next question: Why isn’t everyone using that “system?” Among others, Christian Ponder wants to know.
    Packers showed what they’re made of.
    Just a system passing offense.
    Just a soft fat RB.
    Just small useless CBs.
    I’m sure I’m forgetting something else…
    Oh yeah – just the hearts of champions.

  81. Matt Flynn with GB receivers in GB system, complete hero, with huge TD numbers and gigantic heroic wins.

    Matt Flynn outside of GB system, constantly getting beaten out by everybody in training camp, plays games and looks like garbage.

    Matt Flynn= system QB
    Packers=system QB
    therefore …
    Aaron Rodgers = system QB
    sorry cheeseheads, but its the truth …

    ————————————————-
    IDK what you are trying to say, being a system QB means you are flourishing in the offensive system. Shouldn’t all QB’s be trying to find this fit?

    The truth never felt so good. So no need to be sorry.

  82. What Matt Flynn’s comeback wins have done is serve as an indictment of Aaron Rodgers, who is winless career-long in games where his team trailed by more than a touchdown in the second half, and his only “comebacks” of any significance were erasing a six-point gap to the Saints and seeing the Lions cough up a 14-point lead in the first half, both in 2012. His career has been defined by failure when he can’t front-run or has to lead a comeback – back in September Rodgers lost twice in three weeks, both times when he had to lead a comeback.
