KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Add one more rare distinction to Brett Favre's glittering resume.

The Green Bay quarterback hit Greg Jennings for a 60-yard touchdown pass with 3:05 to go and the Packers beat Kansas City 33-22 Sunday, giving Favre victories over each of the other 31 teams in the league.

It's a career milestone that Peyton Manning and Tom Brady achieved just one week before.

The Chiefs (4-4) had taken a 22-16 lead with 5:18 left on Damon Huard's 17-yard pass to Tony Gonzalez and a 2-point conversion run by Priest Holmes, who came in when Larry Johnson injured his foot a few minutes earlier.

Jennings, whose 82-yard touchdown catch on the first play of overtime lifted Green Bay (7-1) past Denver six days earlier, went streaking down the middle of the field. He beat Patrick Surtain and Donnie Edwards for the Packers' sixth straight road win.

Mason Crosby added a 45-yard field goal and, with 59 seconds to go, Charles Woodson intercepted Damon Huard's pass and went 46 yards for a touchdown that made the game look more lopsided than it actually was. The Packers scored 17 points in the final 3:05

Favre was 24-of 34-for 360 yards and two touchdowns. He was also intercepted twice and the Packers overcame 13 penalties for 120 yards.

Huard was 19-of-32 for 213 yards, with two touchdown and two interceptions. Gonzalez had 10 receptions for 109 yards and one TD.
