GREEN BAY, Wis., Dec. 12 (UPI) -- Ryan Longwell's third field goal of the game Sunday night 5:17 into overtime gave Green Bay a 16-13 win over the Detroit Lions.

Samkon Gado, who raced 64 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter, rushed for a rookie-record 171 yards on 29 carries and Brett Favre went 21-of-31 passing for 170 yards and one interception for the Packers (3-10), who broke a three-game skid.

Favre became the first player in NFL history to have 14 seasons of over 3,000 passing yards.

Jeff Garcia was 13-of-24 for 112 yards and one touchdown while Roy Williams, who caught Garcia's touchdown toss, had four receptions for 53 yards for the Lions (4-9), who lost for the fourth consecutive game and are 0-2 under interim head coach Dick Jauron.
