    Re: NFL: SAN DIEGO (1-1) at GREEN BAY (2-0)

    What an awesome game this has turned out to be.</p>

    Packers get a 1st and goal from the 6 inch line. Incomplete pass, sack, pass back to the 6" line.</p>

    Packers go for it 4th and goal, no backs.</p>

    Incomplete, chargers hold 'em</p>

    WOW!</p>

    Boy did this thing turn around.</p>

    San Diego got the ball upfield about 30 yards and punted. Then Green Bay scores on a 55-ish yard TD pass by Favre.</p>

    San Diego gets the ball back with about 2:00 to get a field goal to win it.</p>

    GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (Ticker) -- Brett Favre has reachedanother milestone.


    Favre tied Dan Marino's all-time record for career touchdownpasses as the surprising Green Bay Packers posted a 31-24 victoryover the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.


    The ageless Favre threw for three scores, giving him 420 in hiscareer to tie Marino's mark.


    Favre matched the mark in dramatic fashion, finding GregJennings over the middle for a 57-yard score with 2:30 remainingto give the Packers a 24-21 lead.


    Earlier in the contest, Favre had a 5-yard TD pass to DonaldDriver and a 5-yard connection to tight end Bubba Franks.

    The latest mark for Favre came one week after he won his 149thcareer win, breaking John Elway's all-time record.

    Favre completed 28-of-45 passes for 369 yards without a turnoverin shredding a porous San Diego secondary.


    After Favre tied the record, linebacker Nick Barnett sealed thingsby intercepting Philip Rivers and breaking off a 38-yard return tothe San Diego 2.


    Two plays later, Brandon Jackson scored on a 1-yard run to makeit 31-21 with 59 seconds left.


    Green Bay is off to its first 3-0 start since 2001. All three winshave come off playoff teams from last season.


    Rivers also threw for three touchdowns for the Chargers (1-2), whoalready have matched their loss total from all of last season undernew coach Norv Turner.

    GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (Ticker) -- Brett Favre has reachedanother milestone.


    Favre tied Dan Marino's all-time record for career touchdownpasses as the surprising Green Bay Packers posted a 31-24 victoryover the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.


    The ageless Favre threw for three scores, giving him 420 in hiscareer to tie Marino's mark.


    Favre matched the mark in dramatic fashion, finding GregJennings over the middle for a 57-yard score with 2:30 remainingto give the Packers a 24-21 lead.


    Favre celebrated the record by sprinting down field with hisarms in the air. He congratulated Jennings, then jumped intothe arms of Donald Driver.


    Earlier in the contest, Favre had a 5-yard TD pass to DonaldDriver and a 5-yard connection to tight end Bubba Franks.

    The latest mark for Favre came one week after he won his 149thcareer win, breaking John Elway's all-time record.

    Favre completed 28-of-45 passes for 369 yards without a turnoverin shredding a porous San Diego secondary.


    After Favre tied the record, linebacker Nick Barnett sealed thingsby intercepting Philip Rivers and breaking off a 38-yard return tothe San Diego 2.


    Two plays later, Brandon Jackson scored on a 1-yard run to makeit 31-21 with 59 seconds left.


    Green Bay is off to its first 3-0 start since 2001. All three winshave come off playoff teams from last season.


    Rivers also threw for three touchdowns for the Chargers (1-2), whoalready have matched their loss total from all of last season undernew coach Norv Turner.


    Moments before his historic toss to Jennings, Favre and the Packersran six plays inside the Chargers 15-yard line with a chance totake the lead. But on 4th-and-goal from inside the 1, Favre's passover the middle fell incomplete.


    The Chargers picked up one first down before being forced to punt,which set the stage for Favre to tie Marino.


    Favre started his trek toward history by finding Driver with a5-yard score less than four minutes into the second quarter,giving the Packers a 10-7 lead.


    Driver had little trouble finding openings in the secondary, ashe finished with six catches for 126 yards. It also was a bigday for Jennings, who has been slowed by hamstring injury. Hehad four receptions for 82 yards.


    With 2:48 left in the first half, Favre connected with Franksfor five yards to make it 17-7.


    Rivers, who completed his first 16 passes, found rookie CraigDavis for a 9-yard score with 32 seconds left in the firsthalf to pull the Chargers within 17-14.


    On their first possession of the third quarter, Rivers engineereda 12-play, 80-yard drive. He capped it with a 21-yard TD pass torunning back LaDainian Tomlinson.


    Tomlinson continued to be bottled up in the running game. Hefinished with 62 yards on 22 carries. After leading the league inrushing last season, Tomlinson has managed 130 yards on 57 carriesin his first three games.
