Alexander owns mark; Favre back to winning
Published January 2, 2006
GREEN BAY, Wis. - If this was the last game of Brett Favre's career, at least he went down slinging. And, in his first losing season with the Packers, at least he went out a winner against playoff-bound Seattle.
"If this were to be his last game, then I'm really glad I was here," said Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren, Favre's former coach in Green Bay. "He has nothing to prove to anybody."
Favre was upstaged for a half by Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander, who set a league record for touchdowns in a season with 28, surpassing Priest Holmes' 2003 mark for the Chiefs, and passed the Giants' Tiki Barber for the rushing crown.
Favre threw his first TD in five games, but threw another interception, his career-high 29th of the season, and played the end of the game with a shoulder injury. Favre, 36, said in recent weeks he is unsure whether he will play next season. Unusual for him, he did not speak to the media.
Alexander scored his record touchdown on a 1-yard run in the second quarter. He piled up 73 yards by halftime, enough to pass Barber for the league rushing lead.
Favre was 21-of-37 for 259 yards, aiming most of his passes at wide receiver Donald Driver.
NOTABLE: Backup Seneca Wallace threw a 5-yard touchdown to Joe Jurevicius, the first of Wallace's career, to put the Seahawks ahead 14-13.
