A record 77,160 fans were in attendance. ... Kampman has eight sacks so far. ... Green Bay didn't activate WR Koren Robinson, who's coming off a one-year suspension. ... Back judge Jim Howey was plowed over on the 79-yard TD play and left the game with a strained hamstring.
The Green Bay Packers used a strong running game -- thanks to their offensive line being able to control the line of scrimmage -- to beat the Broncos in Denver on Monday night. With their offensive linemen sustaining blocks and getting good push against the Broncos front four, Green Bay was able to get 104 yards rushing out of Ryan Grant, a free-agent pick-up from the New York Giants. However it was Favre's ability to recognize that Denver was in an eight-man front to stop the run, and in man coverage on his wide receivers, that allowed him to throw two touchdown passes. In both cases, Favre used the play-action fake to isolate Denver's corners on James Jones for a 79-yard TD pass and Greg Jennings in overtime for the game-winning 82-yard TD pass. All it took was one false step as they reacted to the play-action fake and the corners were beaten both times.
