Pack Beats Lions, Keep Pace with 'Boys

The Green Bay Packers are 10-and-1 after Brett Favre led them to a 37-26 win at Detroit. Favre set a team record by completing 20 consecutive passes, and finished 31-of-41 for a season-high 381 yards and two touchdowns. He hit Greg Jennings for a pair of short touchdowns before hitting Ruvell Martin for a four-yard score that put the Packers up 31-12 late in the third quarter. Ryan Grant led Green Bay's ground game with 101 yards on just 15 carries, including a five-yard scoring burst in the second quarter. The outcome keeps the Packers tied with Dallas for the top record in the NFC. The Lions fall to 6-and-5 with their third straight loss. Jon Kitna didn't get the Lions into the end zone until he threw a six-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Johnson with about 10 minutes left. Kitna was just 19 of 40 for 224 yards. Kevin Jones ran for 93 yards and a touchdown for Detroit.
