|The Packers looked to their leader, Brett Favre, and he came through for them against the 49ers. Favre had a fantastic second half, guiding the Packers to 19 points after the intermission. Favre was confident and precise in his passing, while receiver Antonio Freeman came up big as his main target. Ahman Green gave the Pack a strong ground game. Still, the 49ers could have won this game if Jeff Garcia's fourth-quarter pass to Terrell Owens was about a foot higher. But instead of a go-ahead touchdown pass for the Niners, the Packers came away with an interception. That was the turning point.|
