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 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 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 (see full recap).

Redskins fumble away game
ATLANTA -- Desmond Trufant deflected Kirk Cousins' pass on a potential winning 2-point conversion with 18 seconds remaining, and the Atlanta Falcons edged the Washington Redskins 27-26 on Sunday.

The Falcons scored 20 points off seven Washington turnovers. The Redskins tied a team record with five lost fumbles.

Cousins passed for 381 yards and three touchdowns but had three turnovers in his first start of the season after coach Mike Shanahan decided to bench Robert Griffin III. Griffin watched from the sideline.

Cousins' touchdown pass to Santana Moss gave Washington a chance to force overtime by kicking the extra point. Instead, Cousins' attempted go-ahead 2-point pass for Pierre Garcon was deflected by Trufant.

Steven Jackson ran for two touchdowns for Atlanta.

Alfred Morris had 98 yards rushing but lost two fumbles for Washington (see full recap).

Giants manhandled by Seahawks
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Marshawn Lynch scored on a twisting 2-yard run, Seattle picked off five Eli Manning passes and manhandled the New York Giants 23-0 Sunday.

The Seahawks (12-2) have won six times on the road, a franchise best. They're closing in on the NFC West title and their best overall record; they went 13-3 in 2005 before losing to Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl.

This season's Super Bowl will be played at MetLife Stadium and unless they collapse in their final two games at home, where they are undefeated, the Seahawks will be the NFC favorite to reach the first outdoor Super Bowl in a cold weather city.

New York (5-9) will be deep into its offseason by then with its first losing record since 2004.

It was Seattle's first shutout since a 58-0 romp over Arizona on Dec. 9 last year (see full recap).
