131215-in-game-updates-3-300bDALLAS–The Packers scored a couple of touchdowns in the third quarter and cut the Cowboys’ lead to 29-17 heading into the final quarter of action at At&T Stadium on Sunday.

Eddie Lacy exploded for a 60-yard run on the first play of the second half, and Matt Flynn followed with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson that cut the Cowboys’ lead to 26-10 with 13:08 to play in the third quarter.

With a comeback threat at hand, the Packers defense allowed the Cowboys to chew up 6:35 of the clock en route to a 50-yard field goal by Dan Bailey that extended the Cowboys’ lead to 29-10. The drive used 11 plays.

The Packers offense then responded with a long scoring drive that featured a fingertip grab by Jordy Nelson. Flynn completed a 3-yard touchdown pass to Andrew Quarless that cut the Cowboys’ lead to 29-17 with 1:09 to play in the third quarter.

Green Bay quickly got the ball back when the defense pitched a three-and-out that featured a sack on third down. The Cowboys had yet to convert a third down when the third quarter ended. Following a Cowboys punt and a 26-yard return by Micah Hyde, the Packers had the ball at the Cowboys 22-yard line. The quarter ended with the Packers second-and-13 at the Cowboys 25.
