Coach McCarthy reflects on win over Cowboys, talks Rodgers status

GREEN BAY (WITI) -- During a press conference on Monday, December 16th, Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy reflected on the big Packers comeback win vs. the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday -- and also discussed the status of Quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

McCarthy called Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys "a great victory."

McCarthy said: "I forgot to thank the fans (on Sunday.) It was great to hear them going crazy. I'll never forget it."

The Green Bay Packers keep their playoff hopes alive, coming from behind and beating Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys 37-36 on Sunday.

The first half was a disaster for the Pack.  Their only scoring play was a Mason Crosby 57-yard Field Goal.

At halftime, the Cowboys led the Packers 26-3.

Whatever McCarthy said to the team at halftime worked -- and the team rallied in the second half to eventually win the game -- the second game they've won by just one point in two weeks!

As for Rodgers, McCarthy said he will be evaluated on Tuesday, and a plan will be set into place on Wednesday.

Rodgers has been sidelined since he fractured his collarbone in a game against the Bears in early November.

McCarthy says as of right now, Flynn will have the start at quarterback for this Sunday's game against the Steelers.

We could learn more on Wednesday as to whether Rodgers has a shot at taking the field this weekend vs. the Steelers.
