Flynn, Packers rally to keep playoff hopes alive: Down 21-10 to the woeful Atlanta Falcons at legendary Lambeau Field, it appeared the Green Bay Packers' playoff hopes would be crushed on a cold and snowy day in the upper Midwest. Instead, quarterback Matt Flynn and a struggling Packers defense helped key a second-half rally for a 22-21 win. Flynn found tight end Andrew Quarless for a go-ahead touchdown with nearly 12 minutes remaining. Then it was up to the defense to hold the one-point lead. The Falcons' final attempt to claim victory was thwarted by an interception by defensive back Jarrett Bush. The win halted a five-game winless streak for the Packers that coincided with the team losing Aaron Rodgers to injury in Week 9.
