Game Notes: Big Day, Big Plays

The Packers cured a lot of ailments from last week with a big day vs. the Lions at Lambeau Field.<p>

Packers-Lions Notes:

Green Day: Green went over the century mark before the second quarter was half over. It was his 16th career 100-yard game, 15th with the Packers ... The Packers are now 15-0 when Green goes over 100 yards ... Green's TD is his second in as many weeks.

Free Time: Antonio Freeman made the first catch of his second stint as a Packer with 11:22 to go in the second quarter. Freeman caught a 13-yard pass from Favre on third-and-10. Free got a rousing ovation after the first down catch, and Favre ran downfield to congratulation his teammate.

More receiving news: Former Packer Bill Schroeder caught his first pass against his old team. Last year Schroeder did not make a catch in two games with the Lions vs. Green Bay. Schroeder, a UW-La Crosse product, played for the Packers in 1994 and 1997-2001.

All Green Bay: The Packers out-gained the Lions on the ground 141-17 yards in the first half.

Record books: Brett Favre moved into fourth place on the NFL's all-time completions list in the third quarter. He moved past Fran Tarkenton with 3,686. Warren Moon is in third place with 3,988. Dan Marino is firmly in the top spot with 4,967.

Injuries: While it was a great day for Packer linebackers, they did get a little banged up. Na'il Diggs had to leave the game in the fourth quarter, while Paris Lenon was helped from the field earlier in the second half.

Receiver Robert Ferguson, whose very appearance in the game was amazing due to his ankle and knee injuries, aggravated his knee injury and left the game in the middle of the fourth quarter.
