Green Bay played reserves for most of today's game against the Detroit Lions, a team the Packers have beaten every year at home since 1991. Brett Favre played long enough to throw a pair of TD passes in the 34-13 win. Detroit, reportedly planning to fire offensive coordinator Mike Martz, have lost seven of its final eight. Elsewhere:
- Cincinnati blew out Miami 38-25 backed by three touchdown passes by Carson Palmer, two to wideout Chad Johnson. The Bengals finished a disappointing 7-9 while the Dolphins were a league-worst 1-15.
- The Eagles won the battle to get to .500 by beating Buffalo 17-9 in sloppy conditions in Philadelphia. Brian Westbrook broke two franchise records in the win.
