(WNFL) - The Green Bay Packers overcame a 26-to-3 halftime deficit yesterday, to beat the Cowboys at Dallas 37-to-36.  Eddie Lacy scored the game-winning touchdown with 1:31 left from one yard out, behind blocking from Packers' giant defensive linemen B-J Raji and Mike Daniels.  It matched the biggest comeback in Packers' history, as the 1982 Pack clawed back from 23-down to beat the former Los Angeles Rams.  Also, it was Green Bay's first road victory against the Cowboys in seven tries, dating back to 1989.  And the Packers remain in the playoff hunt, a half-game behind first-place Chicago in the N-F-C North with two to play.   Lacy rushed for 141 yards, as he went over a-thousand for his rookie year -- and he had four catches for 30 yards.  Matt Flynn threw four second-half touchdown passes.  He had one yard short of 300 in his second come-from-behind win in as many weeks in place of the injured Aaron Rodgers.Burlington native Tony Romo threw for 358 yards and two touchdowns for Dallas.  His final two drives ended in interceptions to Sam Shields and Tramon Williams -- the latter of which sealed Green Bay's victory after a long replay review.  DeMarco Murray ran for 134 yards and a score, but Romo didn't use him down the stretch when the Cowboys could have run off valuable time on the ground to keep Green Bay's charging offense off the field.  Dallas coach Jason Garrett admitted that the interception to Shields was supposed to be a running play -- and Romo changed it at the line of scrimmage, thus resulting in Lacy's winning score.  Dez Bryant caught 11 passes for 153 yards, as Dallas had the edge in total yards 466-to-433.Flynn threw his scoring passes to Jordy Nelson, Andrew Quarless, James Starks, and James Jones.  Jarrett Boykin was the Packers' leading receiver with six catches for 83 yards.  Tight end Brandon Bostick left the game with a foot injury, and defensive end Johnny Jolly left with a shoulder injury.  The Packers improved to 7-6-and-1, and will host Pittsburgh next Sunday.
