GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Brett Favre set an NFL record Sunday by throwing a touchdown pass in his 14th consecutive playoff game.
Favre was tied with former Dolphins star Dan Marino, who threw TD passes in 13 consecutive playoff appearances between 1983-95.
Favre threw his 31st postseason touchdown pass -- the third-most in NFL history -- on an audible about 4½ minutes before halftime in the Green Bay Packers' first-round NFC playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Favre also extended his team record to 26 consecutive games with a touchdown pass, including playoffs. It is the longest current streak in the NFL.
He led the league for a record-tying fourth time in touchdown passes this season with 32. His completion percentage of .654 was a career best.
Favre took the splint off his broken right thumb at practice this week but decided to put it back on Sunday. He broke it in a game at St. Louis on Oct. 19.
