Packers-Redskins notes

Versatile offensive lineman Mike Flanagan started at left tackle for the first time in his career on Sunday, filling in for the injured Chad Clifton.<p>

When asked afterwards how he held up against a future Hall of Fame defensive end in Bruce Smith, Flanagan said that he thought he did okay, only getting beat a couple of times. The Packers left Flanagan to block Smith one-on-one for much of the game as he finished with just three tackles and no sacks.

Flanagan did see time at tackle the week prior against the New England Patriots when Clifton had to leave the game with a knee injury. He had started that game at center where he has been the incumbent for the Packers the past two years.

Inactives: Game day inactives for the Packers were safety Antuan Edwards, McKenzie, Sharper, running back Najeh Davenport, Clifton, tight end Tyrone Davis, and defensive end Vonnie Holliday. All were listed on the team's injury report.

Extra points: Defensive end Jamal Reynolds was active for just the third of seven games this year and he had two pressures on Ramsey that forced incomplete passes. Favre tied Willie Wood on the all-time consecutive played list with his 166th straight. Forrest Gregg holds the record at 187.

Ahman Green's three touchdown runs (of 24, two, and eight yards) were a single-game career high.

With the victory, head coach Mike Sherman notched the first five-game winning streak of his three-year Packers' career.
