Noteworthy: Targeted six times apiece, Boykin and Quarless caught every pass thrown their way. Boykin's six catches went for 83 yards, while Quarless caught six for 66 and a touchdown. Nelson, Jones and Starks also caught touchdown passes from Flynn. Jones continues to gut it out on a bum knee and broke several tackles on his 39-yard catch-and-run in the first quarter. ... If we learned anything about Flynn's limitations, it's that he can't throw the fade. He's missed that throw consistently since he was put into the lineup on Nov. 26 against the Vikings and missed it again to Jones late in the fourth quarter against the Cowboys. ... Daniels and Raji lined up at fullback on Lacy's 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. It was a play the Packers just started working on last week.
Noteworthy: Boyd, the rookie fifth-round draft pick, saw his playing time increase for the third straight week. He made an impressive tackle for 3-yard loss against running back DeMarco Murray when he easily beat left tackle Tyron Smith. Jolly never returned from a first-half shoulder injury. ... Neal had a coverage sack and Matthews had a couple of hurries but the outside linebackers didn't get much else done. ... Like Boyd, Richardson's playing time increased for the third straight game. For the second straight game, he played more snaps than Jennings. ... As Datone Jones' playing time has decreased on defense, it has increased on special teams. The first-round pick is now on the kickoff return unit.
