Brett breaks the record in 1st quarter - Pack 7, Vikes 0

With about 5 minutes to go in the first quarter, Brett Favre threw a 15-yard slant pass to Greg Jennings for his 421st career TD pass. The king is dead. Long live the king! Brett surpassed Dan Marino's record of 420 TD pass with a check-down call at the line of scrimmage, hitting Jennings in full stride on a slant pass to about the 5-yard line with Jennings taking it in untouched. Play was stopped with an acknowledgment by the 'Queens public address announcer and a video congrats by Dan Marino.

Other highlights from the quarter include a fumble recovery by Johnny Jolly on a pass play that helped set up this record-breaking TD pass, as did a nice upfield reception by Donald Lee.

Aaron Kampman is also getting a great pass rush on the 'Queens QB, including one sack. A couple disconcerting notes relate to the Packers D-backs: Charles Woodson has been called twice for illegal contact, one of which was declined because a first down was reached anyway and the second negated an interception by Woodson himself which he had returned for a 58-yard TD; the second area of concern is that the 'Queens seem to be trying to exploit second-year cornerback Jarrett Bush.

Oh, and there is still no running game for the Pack.
