The storyline
Wouldn't this be ironic if Brett Favre got benched for all of his turnovers and his streak ended against the Packers of all teams? That won't happen, but I'd have given Tarvaris Jackson a shot weeks ago. Oh, and Brad Childress could get fired after another loss.

Why you should watch
You know, if nothing else can come of this season, trying to keep the Packers out of the playoffs should get the 41-year-old Favre pumped up. The Packers are healthy off a bye. Favre vs. Rodgers is always fun.
