Packers Win Decisively
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Green Bay Packers improved to 8-1 as they beat the Minnesota Vikings 34-0.
A week after setting an NFL single game rushing record with 296 yards, Adrian Peterson was held to only 45 yards and more importantly kept out of the end zone.
Brett Favre completed 33 of 46 pass attempts for 351 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Packers offensively. He is now 1,105 yards away from breaking Marino's all-time record for pass yards.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the game was the Packers ability to run the ball against the NFL's second ranked rush defense. Ryan Grant was able to run for 81 yards in the first quarter alone and finished with 119 yards, including a 30 yard touchdown run.
Despite the rout of the Vikings, Favre thinks they can continue to improve. "Today was awesome, but I still think there's so much more left for us to do," Favre said. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
