Favre breaks Marino's record

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

Oct. 1, 2007 | Dick's Stock Watch provides a fast-glance review of the past week in the world of sports, charting whose stock is up and whose is down.

STOCK UP
• Brett Favre shattered the NFL record for career touchdown passes, moving ahead of Dan Marino.

• Alex Rodriguez finished the regular season with 54 homers and `56 RBI.

• South Florida, Colorado, Auburn, Kansas State and Maryland all upset top 10 teams.

• Major League baseball with several NL races going down to the final day of the regular season. San Diego and Colorado meet in a one-game playoff to determine the wild card winner.

• Kelly Pavlik won the middleweight title with a seventh-round TKO over Jermain Taylor in a action-packed battle.

• The U.S. Presidents Cup team dominated in winning.

STOCK DOWN
• The Mets had a seven-game lead in the NL East with 17 games left to play. Now they are going home after missing out on the postseason.

• The Ravens lost to the Browns by two touchdowns.

• The Dolphins and Rams both fell to 0-4.

• Michael Vick tested positive for marijuana, another strike for him.

• Umpire Mike Winters was suspended for the rest of the season for his role in the Milton Bradley incident.

• The U. S. Women's soccer team fell short of the World Cup title, losing to Brazil in the semifinals, 4-0. There was the whole Hope Solo controversy and I thought she was out of line ripping her teammate, though she claimed she was criticizing her coach. At least the Americans won third place by beating Norway.
