Green realizes record on first series

A simple nine-yard run, like many that Ahman Green has made this year. But this one put his name into the record books - here's Laura with the first word on Green's feat...

Ahman Green became the Packers' all-time single-season rushing leader Sunday on a nine-yard burst three and a half minutes into Green Bay's game vs. San Diego at Qualcomm Stadium.

Green's run gave him1,480 yards for the season, six more than Jim Taylor's record set in 1962. Green didn't sit on that number for long. He followed it up with a burst through the right side of the line for a four-yard touchdown with 10:59 remaining in the first quartert. That capped the Packers' 8-play, 60-yard scoring march. Green provided 21 yards on four carries on the drive, with receiver Donald Driver coming up with two big third down catches for 39 yards to keep it going and give Green the early opportunity.

The remarkable moment in Packer history was not televised by Fox, at least not in some of its markets. The network stayed with the Seahawks-Rams game to its conclusion, then aired post-game interviews and commercials. Fox joined the game in progress for Ryan Longwell's extra point after Green's record run and touchdown were already in the books.
