Packers' Jennings Making Name For Himself

He's not the biggest or fastest NFL receiver.

But the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs both overlooked Greg Jennings, and they paid for it.

Jennings caught an 82-yard touchdown pass from Brett Favre as the Green Bay Packers beat Denver a week ago Monday.

On Sunday, Jennings snagged a 60-yard scoring pass in the Pack's win at Kansas City.

The back-to-back TD receptions were another sign that he can make an impact, despite his 5-foot-11 frame and underwhelming speed.

Jennings was Western Michigan's top career receiver. Green Bay drafted him 52nd overall in 2006, ahead of any Michigan or Michigan State player.
