Another record has been broken by Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre. He passed Dan Marino in the career-passing-yards department. Dan Marino had 61,361 yards total. After this week's game, Favre has 61,405. With more games to play, Favre could make this record hard to beat.
The best game this week was between Baltimore and Miami. Miami desperately needed a win so they would not join the 1976 Tampa Bay Bucs as the only winless teams to come out of an NFL season. It looked as if the Dolphins would lose again, as they went into halftime down 13-3. In the second half, the momentum swung in favor of the Dolphins, and they came back to take the lead 16-13. The Ravens still tied the game with only seconds left in regulation. In overtime, Ravens kicker Matt Stover missed a 44-yard field goal due to a bad snap, giving Miami a chance to win. It took only a few plays to score a touchdown. The Dolphins pulled ahead to win 22-16.
