GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Both teams thought the game was over long before Ryan Longwell's 34-yard field goal with 5:15 left in overtime gave Green Bay a 37-34 victory over Atlanta.
Yes, I think so. He went into a hostile environment and played terrifically. But Brett Favre is still the master of the comeback and didn't doubt for a second the Packers could win this game. Vick showed poise in directing the last-minute drive that resulted in a field goal to send the game to overtime. He's showing why he was the top overall pick last year.
Eric Allen played 14 seasons in the NFL for the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Ryan Longwell, right, gave the Packers a happy ending on Sunday.
Glenn returned after a mild concussion in the first quarter. ... The Packers cut TE Tyrone Davis before Saturday's deadline that would have made them responsible for his entire $650,000 salary. They would like to re-sign him this week and owe him just $152,942 or 4/17ths of his 2002 salary. ... DE Vonnie Holliday extended his deadline for reaching a contract extension with the Packers beyond opening kickoff. ... Favre tied Terry Bradshaw's NFL record by improving to 67-12 in home starts. ... The only other Packers' opener that was as hot was in 1976.
