A great game for the Packers, shutting them out 34-0. Favre had a great day, Grant had a great day with his 2nd 100-yard game and his first TD of his career also, Ruvell Martin had a great day with his first 2-TD day. How did you like his second TD catch? I know I liked it. The defense also did a great job covering the pass and holding Rookie Adrian Peterson to only 45 yards but then they let Chester Taylor come in and rush for 37. Overall they only let up 86 yards.
Former University of Wisconsin QB Brooks Bollinger only had 176 passing yards while Brett Favre had 351 yards. Aaron Rodgers came in late to get some playing time. He only threw 2 passes but he completed them both for 17 yards.
