Favre Struggles in Packers' 13-9 Win Over Steelers

Good thing for Brett Favre this one didn't count.

Packers backup quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw a touchdown pass and led two other scoring drives in Green Bay's 13-9 exhibition victory over Pittsburgh tonight.

Rodgers was 18-27 for 168 yards. He produced the Packers' only touchdown with a 3-yard scoring pass to Carlyle Holiday.

Favre finished 2-7 for seven yards. He played four series but the Packers went three-and-out on each.

Starting kicker Dave Rayner made a 32-yard field goal to end the first half. Mason Crosby made it 13-9 in the third quarter with a 52-yard field goal.

On the Steelers' opening drive, Green Bay's Cullen Jenkins stripped Ben Roethlisberger of the ball and recovered the fumble.
