The legend of Brett Favre grows. Favre connected on an 82-yard TD pass to Greg Jennings on the first play of overtime to give the Green Bay Packers a stunning 19-13 win over Denver at Mile High. It's the second-longest TD pass that decided an NFL overtime game.

That's the 36th time that Favre has engineered a fourth-quarter or overtime comeback for the Pack. Favre finished 21-of-27 for 331 yards and two TDs. It's the fourth time this season that Favre has gone over the 300-yard passing mark.

It's the first time since 1983 that Green Bay has won a road overtime game. Denver had tied the score at 13 on Jason Elam's 21-yard field goal as time ran out in regulation, setting the stage for another Favre comeback.

The win gives the Packers a 6-and-1 mark, good for a one-game lead over Detroit in the NFC North. Dallas is tied with Dallas for the best record in the NFC. The Broncos are 3-and-4 in the AFC West, a game back of first-place Kansas City and San Diego.

    They're lucky it was that close and that the game even made it to OT.
