DETROIT (AP) _ The Green Bay Packers are 10-and-1 after Brett
Favre (fahrv) led them to a 37-26 win at Detroit.
Favre set a team record by completing 20 consecutive passes, and
finished 31-of-41 for a season-high 381 yards and two touchdowns.
He hit Greg Jennings for a pair of short touchdowns before hitting
Ruvell Martin for a four-yard score that put the Packers up 31-12
late in the third quarter.
Ryan Grant led Green Bay's ground game with 101 yards on just 15
carries, including a five-yard scoring burst in the second quarter.
The outcome will keep the Packers at least tied with Dallas for
the top record in the NFC. The Lions fall to 6-and-5 with their
third straight loss.
Jon Kitna didn't get the Lions into the end zone until he threw
a six-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Johnson with about 10 minutes
left. Kitna was just 19 of 40 for 224 yards.
Kevin Jones ran for 93 yards and a touchdown for Detroit.
