Packers-Jets: Game notes

News and notes from Sunday's disappointing Packers loss at Lambeau Field.

? Before Dave Rayner managed to kick a 34-yard field goal in the third quarter, the Packers had been outscored at home by a combined 66-0, courtesy of the Jets and the New England Patriots over six quarters.

? Cornerback Charles Woodson, in the third quarter, got his fifth interception of the season, and tied his single-season career best, set in 1998 as a rookie with the Oakland Raiders.

? Brett Favre rushed for 9, 11, and 13 yards for a total of 33, his most in one game since Oct. 15, 2000 against San Francisco, when he had 35 yards on three carries.

? The Jets' 31 first half points are their most since Nov. 3, 2002 when the Jets led the San Diego Chargers 31-7 at the half en route to a 44-13 victory.

? During New York's first drive, an 11-play, 63-yard drive that resulted in a Mike Nugent field goal, quarterback Chad Pennington was 6-of-8 for 58 yards with completions to six different receivers.

? The Jets weren't forced to punt until there were less than 7 minutes left in the game.

? The Packers had three unlikely starters in this game: safety Nick Collins got the not despite an injured hamstring; linebacker Nick Barnett played with a club cast to protect his broken hand; and punter Jon Ryan played with a heavy heart following the death of his father, Bob, from cancer on Friday.

? Favre's 20-yard touchdown pass to Donald Driver in the third quarter was the 32nd for the Favre-Driver duo, tying them for fifth all-time in Packers history with Lynn Dickey-James Lofton and Favre-Robert Brooks.

? Favre's cold weather record took another hit with Sunday's loss. With the temperature at 34 degrees or colder at kickoff, Favre is now 33-3 in regular season games and 40-5 including playoffs.

? Including 18 touches Sunday, Green has not fumbled since Sept. 24 at Detroit. He has 138 offensive touches (124 carries, 13 receptions, one fumble recovery) in that span.

? The Packers-Jets match-up featured an Ohio reunion. The Jets' Nick Mangold and Mike Nugent along with Packer linebacker A. J. Hawk all grew up in Centerville, Ohio.

? The Packers fell to 2-8 (.200) all-time against the Jets franchise.

? Former Packer wide receiver Antonio Freeman served as the game's honorary captain as part of the team's season-long 10th Anniversary celebration of the 1996 Super Bowl XXXXI championship team.
