One day after Denver saw their World Series dreams obliterated by Boston, the Green Bay Packers outlasted the Broncos at home with an overtime win in a contradictory game dominated by Brett Favre. Together, the teams put up 680 yards in regulation, making 40 of their 60 combined passes, yet only scored 13 points each, reports the Denver Post.
When Favre found his receivers, it was in a big way: one first-quarter drive consisted of nothing but a 79-yard touchdown pass, and the first play of overtime was another touchdown, an 82-yarder. Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler, meanwhile, turned over a costly fumble on the 1-yard line. "I don't know what happened," Cutler said of the bizarre play.
