GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - The Green Bay Packers came back from 16 points down in the third quarteron Sunday to tie the Minnesota Vikings 26-26 at Lambeau Field.  The Packers moved to within a fraction of a game behind N-F-C North leaders Detroit and Chicago, both of which lost.  The Vikings were up 23-7 when Packers' quarterback Matt Flynn replaced an ineffective Scott Tolzien.  Flynn led a pair of touchdown drives on a three-yard run by Eddie Lacy and a six-yard pass to Jarrett Boykin.  Mason Crosby then sent the game to overtime with a 27-yard field goal with 46 seconds left in regulation.  In the O-T, both teams traded field goals.  The end result was the Packers' first tie since 1987 against Denver, and the N-F-L's first tie since November 11th of last year when Saint Louis and San Francisco played to a 24-all deadlock.  It was only the league's fourth tie since 2000, and the first to finish in a tie under the new overtime rules.   Flynn completed 21-of-36 passes for 218 yards and a score.  Tolzien threw for 98 yards and ran for a score.  The rookie had his third 100-yard game, rushing for 110 on 25 carries.  James Jones caught seven passes for 80 yards.  Once again the Packers' defense struggled.   Adrian Peterson rushed for 147 yards and a touchdown for Minnesota.  Toby Gerhart rushed for 91 yards, as the Vikes moved to 2-8-1 on the season.   Green Bay out-gained Minnesota in total yards, 494-447.  The Vikings held the ball six minutes longer.  Packers' defensive end C-J Wilson left with a late knee injury.  Lacy went to the locker room with asthma, but returned.  Green Bay's record is now 5-5-1, and they're now 10th in the N-F-C for the six conference playoff spots. The Packers play at Detroit on Thanksgiving.
