Favre says hand is OK

Quarterback without a touchdown pass for second straight game

Quarterback Brett Favre insisted a deep cut on his right hand wasn't a factor when he threw for a season-low 170 yards in the 16-13 overtime win against Detroit on Sunday night.

Favre completed 21 of 31 passes, mostly of the short to intermediate variety, but didn't have a touchdown for the second straight game. He endured an interception for the seventh contest in a row, bumping his league-high total to 22, and also fumbled the ball away on his first pass play of the game.

"Toward the end, it was real sore," Favre said of the hand injury, which he sustained in the previous game at Chicago. "This is probably one of those things that's going to hurt until the season's over. Plus, the little gash I have probably won't heal until after the season. But, one of the good things about playing in cold like that is you just don't really feel it until the end."

Temperature at kickoff at Lambeau Field was 14 degrees, with a wind chill of 5.
