The Packers were on a bye following a 17-14 win over the visiting Redskins. Mason Crosby hit a 37-yard field goal and Charles Woodson returned a fumble 57 yards to lead the Packers. Jason Elam nailed his third game-winning field goal of the season to lead the Broncos to a 31-28 victory over the Steelers.
Packers quarterback Brett Favre vs. Broncos cornerbacks Champ Bailey and Dre' Bly. The NFL's all-time interception king faces two of the top cornerbacks in the game. Favre passed George Blanda on the all-time list and now has 276 career interceptions. But Favre has been known to throw a touchdown, or two, as well. Favre has passed for 7,547 yards and 55 touchdowns on Monday nights, second all-time. Bailey (thigh) and Bly (shoulder) are both battling injuries, but coach Mike Shanahan expects them to be ready to play. Bailey and Bly rank first and second among active cornerbacks for most interceptions since 1999.
