Metrodome is Comfort Zone for Pack

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Metrodome wasn't always so comfortable for the Green Bay Packers.

That's changed in recent years.

The Packers have three wins in their last four visits to their NFC North rival.

The only time Favre has failed to throw a touchdown pass in his past 11 trips to Minnesota was in 1999.

So, it's likely he'll break Dan Marino's record of 420 career touchdown passes.

From 1999-to-2002, the Packers were 1-3 at the Metrodome, an improvement from 0-5 in Favre's first five visits when he threw two touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Favre says it's a difficult place to play, given the rivalry, the noise factor and the turf.

He says in previous years they haven't handled that as well as recently.
