Notes and numbers from the Packers' 37-31 victory over the Detroit Lions Sunday at Ford Field:

***Robert Ferguson's 8-yard touchdown reception midway through the 3rd quarter was his first career touchdown reception. Ferguson's TD catch made him the 34th receiver to catch a touchdown pass from Brett Favre.

With his touchdown 21-yard TD pass to Donald Driver one play into the second quarter, Favre moved past Warren Moon to rank fourth on the NFL's all-time career TD pass list with 292. Dan Marino holds the record with 420 career touchdown passes, followed by Fran Tarkenton (342) and John Elway (300).

***When Joey Harrington's third-down pass for Az-Zahir Hakim was tipped by Steve Warren and caught by rookie Marques Anderson and returned 78 yards for a Packers score in the 1st quarter, Anderson became the first rookie to return and interception for a touchdown since Antuan Edwards did it in 1999… Anderson also recovered a fumble in the game.

Az-Zahir Hakim's punt return touchdown, set up by a reverse handoff from Eddie Drummond, was the first punt return TD allowed by the Packers since Oct. 29, 2000.

***After being forced into a three-and-out on their first possession, Eddie Drummond fielded Josh Bidwell's 44-yard punt and dished it off to Az-Zahir Hakim who ran 72 yards for a Lions touchdown (12:27, 1st quarter). The Packers had not allowed a punt return for a touchdown since Oct. 29, 2000 (a 28-20 loss at Miami).

***Appearing in his 162nd consecutive game Sunday, Brett Favre tied Larry McCarren for the third-longest consecutive games-played streak in Packers history. Forrest Gregg is the leader at 187 consecutive games, followed by Willie Wood's 166 consecutive appearances. Favre also extended his NFL record for consecutive starts by a quarterback to 160.
