Matt Flynn was comin off his best game of the season with the Green Bay Packers and was facing the leagues’ wrist pass defense in the Dallas Cowboys which made the fact that Aaron Rodgers was still not quite ready to return to action from his broken collarbone somewhat more palatable, but Flynn has been absolutely dreadful in the first half vs. the Cowboys.
Flynn has completed 10 of his 17 pass attempts for 114 yards with zero touchdowns and threw an interception to Sterling Moore who is a couple weeks removed from being on the street.
The Packers trail the Cowboys 26-2 at halftime and with the Packers trailing the Chicago Bears (8-6) and the Detroit Lions (7-6) hosting the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football, the slim playoff hopes for the Pack are being dashed with the former NFL MVP on the sidelines.
Flynn will need a big second half and the Packers do get the ball do start the third quarter, so Flynn will need to find Jordy Nelson, Jarrett Boykin and James Jones who have combined for 81 of Flynn’s 114 yards on five receptions. Eddie Lacy, the team’s workhorse running back, oddly enough is the team’s leading receiver at halftime with three receptions.
