ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A simple slant pattern to his favorite receiver gave Brett Favre yet another record in a milestone season.
Brett Favre breaking records has become more common than not in 2007. Favre eclipsed Dan Marino's all-time mark of 61,361 yards passing on Sunday, hooking up with Donald Driver on a 7-yard slant pattern in the fourth quarter. Favre now leads the way with 61,405 yards.
Atogwe has seven interceptions, tied for the NFC lead with the Seahawks' Marcus Trufant and the most for the Rams since Dexter McCleon had eight in 2000. ... Isaac Bruce caught four passes for 72 yards, passing the injured Marvin Harrison for fourth on the career yards receiving list at 13,983. ... Packers FB Korey Hall injured his left leg in the second quarter and did not return. ... Koren Robinson provided an early spark for the Packers with kickoff returns of 43 and 56 yards.
Sometimes, itís the little things that are the difference between winning and losing. Something like an offensive lineís ability to pick up the blitz might sound simple, but it isnít always that way. St. Louis defensive coordinator Jim Haslett brought a large variety of zone blitzes and stunts to try to pressure QB Brett Favre into some bad throws, but Green Bayís offensive line did a great job of recognizing the games up front and protected Favre well enough for him to pick apart the St. Louis secondary. Meanwhile, the Ramsí O-line failed to recognize the Packersí blitzes. Green Bay linebacker Nick Barnett did a great job of timing his blitzes and got to Marc Bulger for two of the Packersí four sacks. The Green Bay O-lineís ability to adjust and pick up the blitzes keyed a big win that clinched a first-round playoff bye for the Packers.
