The frustration on Brett Favre's face was very evident after the Green Bay Packers fell to the St. Louis Rams 23-20 at Lambeau Field. Favre had the Packers in field goal range in the final minute and driving for the potential game winning touchdown when disaster struck. Leonard Little, rushing from the outside, beat his man (Mark Tauscher) and stripped the ball from Favre as the Rams picked up the turnover. Packers rookie guard Daryn Colledge tried to fall on the fumble, but it squirted away and the Rams pounced on it. Favre has 35 fourth-quarter comebacks in his career, but only one since 2004. Favre looked like he was headed for #36 before the turnover. Favre tossed one touchdown pass and no interceptions, but struggled with inconsistency. The loss spoiled Noah Herron's career high rushing total 106 yards on 20 carries with a touchdown. Herron entered the game after Vernand Morency fumbled early on. The Packers fell to 1-4 with the loss and are now 0-3 at Lambeau Field. They'll practice Tuesday through Thursday before taking their bye weekend off.
