ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Matt Flynn is ready to hand the starting job back to Aaron Rodgers.
While he's finished filling in for the injured former Super Bowl MVP, he has a spot in Green Bay lore, even if it's not quite on par with the franchise's many championship moments.
Flynn threw four touchdown passes in the second half, Eddie Lacy had the winning score on a 1-yard plunge after Tony Romo threw an interception to give the Packers one more chance, and Green Bay matched the biggest comeback in franchise history with a 37-36 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
"Yeah, it's probably the biggest win of my career," said Flynn, who has won two straight starts after the Packers were winless for five straight without Rodgers, including the Chicago game when he broke his left collarbone.
The epic rally fueled by Flynn — and helped along by Romo — didn't change anything about the quarterback situation with the Packers (7-6-1) still in playoff contention heading into a home game against Pittsburgh.
Rodgers was close to medical clearance against the Cowboys, but missed his sixth straight game. He was wearing a headset on Green Bay's sideline.
"I don't anticipate being the guy going forward," said Flynn, who was released twice this year before the Packers picked him up after Rodgers got hurt. "We all anticipate Aaron getting healthy."
Romo tossed two interceptions in the final 3 minutes, the first set up Green Bay's go-ahead score with the Cowboys in position to run out the clock.
Lacy scored with 1:31 to go for Green Bay's first lead since the first quarter and after the Packers trailed 26-3 at halftime.
"It took me everything not to cry," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "I'm just drained. Just the sheer emotion. It was incredible."
