Packers prepare for playoffs with 34-13 victory over Lions

The Green Bay Packers didn't have to choose today between playing it safe and playing to win.

The Packers finished their turnaround regular season with a 34-13 victory over the Detroit Lions while resting several key players for the playoffs.

Brett Favre extended his quarterback-record consecutive starts streak to 253 games, but didn't keep his helmet strapped on long. Favre led the Packers to touchdowns on their first three possessions before handing the ball to backup Craig Nall in the second quarter.

Many of Favre's most prominent teammates didn't even dress for Sunday's game.

They weren't needed to beat Detroit and tie a franchise record for most victories in a season.
