DETROIT (AP) -Brett Favre fumbled on his first play of the game. It was about the only mistake he made.
Favre set a Green Bay record with 20 consecutive completions and finished with a season-high 381 yards and three touchdowns in the Packers' 37-26 victory over the Detroit Lions on Thursday.
The three-time MVP fumbled after his first snap, tripping over a teammate, before putting together another sensational performance that made the 38-year-old quarterback look as if he's back in his prime.
His seventh 300-yard game of the season matched a team mark he set in 1995.
Green Bay (10-1) matched its best 11-game record since 1929 and the NFC North leaders have a four-game lead with five games left in the regular season.
The slumping Lions (6-5) have lost three straight and might struggle to finish .500 in a season that started with much hope and is suddenly looking familiar, coming off six straight double-digit loss seasons.
Cowboys 34, Jets 3
IRVING, Texas (AP) - Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes, including a late one to Terrell Owens, sending the Cowboys past New York and giving Dallas its best record through 11 games in its 48-year, five-championship history.
While the milestone is nice, it's only good for a share of the NFC lead. Green Bay also is 10-1 and the Packers are headed to Texas Stadium next Thursday night.
The Cowboys (10-1) needed only eight plays to go ahead 7-0 and were up 21-0 before the Jets (2-9) even scored, getting a field goal in the final minute of the first half. Dallas wound up not allowing a touchdown for the first time all season.
Romo was 21-for-28 for 195 yards. His two touchdown passes give him 29 on the season, tying a club record.
Owens caught six passes for 65 yards, with a 22-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
