Packers-Lions Notes

The Packers' reached several milestones in their impressive 40-14 win over Detroit at Lambeau Field Sunday.<P>

Favre File: As difficult as it is for Brett Favre to add more lines to his already-full recordbook, Sunday brought more milestones Favre's way.

With 351 yards, Favre passed Joe Montana on the NFL career passing yardage list into 6th place ... His 295 first-half yards marked a career high ... Favre now has six career 300-yard passing games against the Lions ... The win boosted Favre's record as a starter to 111-55, a .669 winning percentage which puts him at No. 3 on the all-time list. Joe Monana holds the best overall record as a starter at 117-47 ... Favre now owns the best home winning percentage for QBs. He is now 71-12 at home, an .855 winning percentage. Terry Bradshaw finished his career with a .848 mark (67-12).

And of course, Favre extended his own QB Ironman streak to 166 consecutive starts.

Streak: The win Green Bay's seventh straight victory -- their longest streak in the regular season since 1963.

The win assured the Packers of at least a .500 season, which increases their run without a losing campaign to 11 seasons. They've been .500 or better since 1992. The Packers have strung together 14 non-losing seasons twice (1919-1932, 1934-1947).

Unhappy homecoming: Former Packers wideout Bill Schroeder had a terrible return to Lambeau Field. He had no catches and three drops, one of which was intercepted by rookie safety Marques Anderson and returned for a touchdown. Schroeder let Harrington's short pass go through his arms, and Anderson was there to return it 14 yards for the touchdown.

Schroeder also dropped a pass in the end zone on the last play of the game.
