Brett Favre celebrated his 30th birthday by taking the Packers 73-yards in six plays to win the game with just over a minute left on a TD strike to Antonio Freeman. This game was live on Armed Forces Radio as it was a Sunday night game and it looked to be one worth watching when Mike Alstott rolled 22 yards to score inside the two minute warning. "I'd have bet my life we'd have stopped them on that drive," said Warren Sapp, who had two of Tampa Bay's five sacks.
