Green Bay — Matt Flynn (nearly) saved the day for the Green Bay Packers.

At a deflated Lambeau Field — the Packers’ playoff hopes at stake — the back-up quarterback supplanted Scott Tolzien and led a furious comeback. Scoring on four straight possessions, Flynn took Green Bay to overtime against Minnesota.

Flynn brought the theatrics. But it wasn’t quite enough.

The Packers and Vikings settled with a 26-26 tie Sunday. With the Detroit Lions (6-5) and Chicago Bears (6-5) both losing, Green Bay (5-5-1) is still very much alive in the NFC North race. But Sunday also had to leave everyone wanting more.

Flynn finished 21 of 36 for 218 yards with one touchdown.
