Dream Season Ends on Tynes’ Frozen 47-Yard Kick in 23-20 Loss

Tynes kicks a field goal to beat 

The Packers’ road to glory was cut short Sunday by a heartbreaking 23-20 loss in overtime to the New York Giants. The Giants intercepted a Brett Favre pass to Donald Driver. Corey Webster picked off the pass and returned it nine yards to the Green Bay 34. Lawrence Tynes sealed the deal with a 47-yard field goal three plays later. Brett Favre finished 19-of-35 for 236 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Ryan Grant managed just 29 yards rushing on 13 carries for Green Bay, which was trying to advance to its first Super Bowl since losing to the Broncos in 1998. Donald Driver caught five balls for 141 yards, including a franchise-postseason record 90-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter.

Brett Favre told reporters after Sunday’s season-ending loss that it was a great year. However, Favre said he expected more out of himself. He said he knows it’s part of the game, but he found it disappointing. Immediately after the game ended, Favre was asked whether he’ll return to play for the Packers next year. He was asked whether the disappointment of this loss would affect his decision whether to return. Favre said Sunday’s game won’t sway his decision one way or another. General Manager Ted Thompson said he plans to meet with Favre, possibly today, to discuss his future. Reporters asked Thompson whether he wanted Favre back next season. Thompson replied, “Sure. Wouldn’t you?”
