The Favre File

Now that the 2002 season is in the books, Brett Favre's career numbers have climbed to new heights.<P> Here's how some of his key career stats stack up after his 12th NFL season, and 11th as field general for the Green Bay Packers:<P>

Favre took over first place on the NFL's list of all-time home records. The 8-0 run at Lambeau in 2003 made Favre 74-12 (.860) all time at home. That puts him well head of previous record-holder Terry Bradshaw (67-12, .848, Pittsburgh). Roger Staubach (49-10, .831, Dallas) is third.

Favre also leapt over Steve Young and Ken Stabler into third place on the NFL's list of best overall record for a starting QB. With the team's 12-4 regular-season mark, Favre reached .665, ranking behind Joe Montana (117-47, .713), and a game back of second-place Bradshaw (107-51, .667).

The Packers' four wins in December boosted Favre's twelfth-month mark to 36-11 (.766), still fourth on the league's all time list behind Staubach, Theisman and closing in on Montana (.767)

The Packer QB now owns a share of the league's all-time mark for most consecutive post-season games with a touchdown pass. His scoring strike to Donald Driver marked the 13th consecutive post-season game in which Favre has thrown a TD pass, tying Dan Marino.

Favre also added three new venues to his list, posting wins in all three: Detroit's Ford Field, Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Ill., and CMGI Field in Foxboro, Mass.

Favre also tied Bradshaw for the third spot over all on the career post-season touchdown list with 30. More to come!
