Packers Top Panthers 31-17, Improve to 9-1

Brett Favre threw three touchdowns passes as the Green Bay Packers handed the Carolina Panthers a 31-17 loss.

It was Favre's 62nd career game with at least three touchdowns passes, which tied a record held by Dan Marino.

Forty-four-year-old Vinny Testaverde threw a pair of TD passes for Carolina which fell to 4-and-6. He and the 38-year-old Favre formed the oldest starting quarterback duo in NFL history.

Green Bay is 9-and-1. This was the first of three games in 12 days for the Packers, who play at Detroit on Thanksgiving and at Dallas the following Thursday.
