GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers receivers coach Jimmy Robinson knows it can be tough for a young receiver to establish chemistry with a veteran quarterback.

Robinson was 23 when he broke into the NFL with the Giants and his quarterbacks were 37 and 33.

Lately, he's been watching second-year receiver Greg Jennings bond with MVP quarterback Brett Favre.

Despite having almost no practice time with Favre in the last month and having an ankle injury in the second half of last season, Jennings has been catching Favre's bullets like they've been playing together for years.

Coach Mike McCarthy says Jennings is a very instinctive player.

He sees the big picture and understands.

Jennings caught Favre's 420th touchdown pass to tie Dan Marino for the NFL's career record.

And he caught number 421 last Sunday, to set a new record and move the Packers to 4-0.
