Favre More Concerned About Packers' Running Game Than TD Record

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Brett Favre got a congratulatory phone call from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, but he says he didn't get any briefing on what the league has planned when he breaks Dan Marino's career touchdown record.

Favre threw three touchdown passes in Green Bay's victory over the San Diego Chargers last Sunday to tie Marino's career mark of 420.

He'll break the record with his next touchdown toss.

The mark could fall in front of a hostile crowd at Minnesota on Sunday, and Favre's receivers are jumping at the chance to be the one who puts him over the top.

Donald Driver says he and the other receivers will be trying to stretch any catch they can into a TD.

Vikings coach Brad Childress, meanwhile, would much rather help Favre reach a different milestone - for throwing interceptions.

Favre needs two more to tie George Blanda's NFL record of 277.
