Week 15: Top 3 performance moments

Posted Dec 16, 2013

A quick glance at the highlights from Packers vs. Cowboys


LACY RUMBLES 60 YARDS ON FIRST PLAY OF SECOND HALF

The Packers entered the third quarter trailing 26-3, but the comeback got started right away, as RB Eddie Lacy took a handoff to the left behind an inverted wishbone formation and raced upfield 60 yards, setting up the first of five straight touchdowns by the offense. Lacy would finish the game with 21 carries for 141 yards, becoming just the second rookie in team history to top 1,000 rushing yards for the season.

SHIELDS INTERCEPTS ROMO AT MIDFIELD

The Packers trailed 36-31 with less than three minutes left when Cowboys QB Tony Romo checked from a run to a pass play. Packers LB Clay Matthews nearly sacked him, but then Romo’s pass for WR Miles Austin on a crossing route was picked off by CB Sam Shields, setting up the offense for what turned out to be the game-winning 50-yard TD drive.

WILLIAMS GETS REPLAY TO GO HIS WAY FOR LATE INT

Earlier in the fourth quarter, Packers CB Tramon Williams thought he had an interception, but it was overturned by replay. With less than 90 seconds left and the Packers protecting a 37-36 lead, Williams thought he picked off another Romo pass, but this one was ruled incomplete. Replay correctly reversed it, though, and the Packers were able to kneel out their dramatic comeback victory.
