Despite Marc Bulger’s 448-yard performance, Brett Favre was not going to be denied in his 200th consecutive regular season start. The Packers, led by Najeh Davenport’s 187-yards rushing, beat the Rams 45-17 at Lambeau Field Monday night. Green Bay got on the board twice thanks to fumbles from Isaac Bruce, who caught nine passes for 170 yards. Ahmad Carroll picked up Bruce’s first fumble in the first quarter and returned it 40 yards to break a scoreless tie. In the fourth quarter, Michael Hawthorne accounted for the game’s final score by going 34 yards on Bruce’s second fumble. The Rams also had a risky move blow up in their face in the third quarter. With Green Bay leading 21-10, Mike Martz decided fake a 42-yard field on fourth and seven. The attempt failed and the Packers made the Rams pay with a 4-play, 75-yard touchdown drive and they took a 28-10 lead. The Rams moved the ball 77 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to get within 11 points, but the Packers responded with 17 unanswered points to end the game. St. Louis was held to just 47 yards rushing on the night and remained a game behind first-place Seattle in the NFC West.
