Leader of the sack:
Green Bay may have to surrender it's Team Takeaway crown to Sunday's victor. Tampa had the No. 1 ranked defense coming into the game, and added four more interceptions to their league-leading total which now stands at 25. Green Bay was second with 19, and added one on Na'il Diggs first quarter pick.
Longtime Tampa Bay favorite Hardy Nickerson said he enjoyed his trip back to Florida and celebrated with seven tackles. He was met with mixed cheers and boos from the Raymond James Stadium crowd Sunday.
Sunday's injuries: The Packers received no respite from the injury onslaught. Chad Clifton was hurt on a blindside hit by Warren Sapp, which drew the ire of coach Mike Sherman in an exchange with Sapp after the game. Clifton gave the Packers a scare as he was motionless on the Raymond James turf for a long time before leaving on a cart. He reportedly has a hip injury, and the extent is unknown. Paris Lenon hurt his wrist and Gilbert Brown left the game with an ankle injury suffered on the first play of the second half and did not return. More information on injuries is expected Monday.
The streak goes on:
Playing in his 170th consecutive regular season game today, Brett Favre extends the second-longest such streak in team history. Only Forrest Gregg played in more consecutive regular season games for the Packers, holding the record at 187. Also today, Favre extends his NFL record for consecutive regular season starts by a quarterback to 168.
