Packers end 5-game slide, beat Falcons 22-21Submitted: 12/08/2013
Story By Associated Press

GREEN BAY - Matt Flynn threw for 258 yards and the Packers' struggling defense forced a key fourth-quarter turnover in a 22-21 win Sunday over the Atlanta Falcons to snap a five-game winless slide.

Mike Neal's sack forced Matt Ryan to fumble. Defensive lineman Johnny Jolly scooped up the loose ball and celebrated with a little belly dance at chilly Lambeau Field.

Four plays later, Flynn found Andrew Quarless for a 2-yard touchdown pass for the go-ahead score with about 12 minutes left for the Packers (6-6-1).


The score completed a comeback from an 11-point halftime deficit and whipped the fans swathed in parkas and knit caps into a frigid frenzy. It was 9 degrees when the game started, with a wind chill of minus-1.

Matt Bryant missed a 52-yard field goal with 6:42 left for Atlanta (3-10).

Meanwhile, in a game featuring two NFC division leaders the Philadelphia Eagles came out on top, beating the Detroit Lions in Philadelphia 34-20.

The loss dropped the Lions to 7-6, a half-game in front of the Bears and Packers in the NFC North.
