Sanders just 406 yards s
after performance agair

PONTIAC (AP) - Watching
Barry Sanders running was almost
like a religious experience for Detroit
coach Wayne Fontes.
Sanders rushed 20 times for 188
yards and one touchdown yesterday
and the Lions held on for a 34-31
victory over the Green Bay Packers.
The outgoing Fontes was almost
speechless after the record-setting day
by Sanders kept the Lions hopes alive
for an NFC wild-card berth and prob-
ably sank Green Bay's chances.

his single-season recordof 1,548 yards,
set in 1991, during the run.
"He's a great one," Green Bay
coach Mike Holmgren said. "He's an
awesome player, especially on the arti-
ficial turf field. No! He's a great player
anywhere."
The Packers drove to the Lions' 17
late in the fourth period, but Willie
Clay came up with Detroit's second
interception. The Packers got the ball
back with 1:51 remaining, but the
Lions' defense never let them beyond

of becoming the third player in NI
history to rush for 2,000 yards.
"It didn't surprise me," Lions line-
backer Chris Spielman said. "Barry
had, what, two weeks in a row under 50
yards. He was due to bust loose.I sensed
it coming in practice. He was running
with a little more purpose this week."
Each team has three regular season
games remaining. The Lions play at
New York Jets, home against the Mi
nesota Vikings, and close out on Christ-
mas Day at Miami.
The Packers play the Chicago Bears
in Green Bay, the Atlanta Falcons in
Milwaukee, and close out Christmas
Eve at Tampa Bay.
"I think it was emotional," Fontes
said. "We had to win this game. This
was a divisional game. If we lose to
Green Bay, we fall back further in to
NFC Central."
Brett Favre completed 29 of 43
passes for 366 yards and three touch-
downs for Green Bay, but had two
costly interceptions. They were rare
mistakes for Favre who had thrown for
13 TDs with just two interceptions in
the five games before this one. He had
three TD passes against the Lions in
Milwaukee.
Dave Krieg was 18 of 30 for 1
yards and two TDs for Detroit, without
any interceptions. It was the second
straight error-free game for Krieg. He
passed for 351 yards and three TDs
with no interceptions in a Thanksgiv-
ing win over Buffalo.
The score was 24-24 in the third
quarter when Anthony Morgan, who

had six catches for 103 yards, got be-
hind cornerback Greg Jeffries for t*
second time in broken coverage. Mor-
gan caught a 47-yard TD pass from
Favre for a 31-24 Green Bay lead.
Jason Hanson, who had a 27-yard
field goal in the first quarter, pulled
Detroit to 31-27 with a 34-yard fiefd
goal.
There were three lead changes in
the final 8:22 of the second quarter,
when Detroit outscored the Pack=
21-7 for a 24-21 halftime lead.
The Packers took a 14-3 lead on a
27-yard pass from Favre to Morgan
and a 96-yard kickoff return by Robert
Brooks.

"People will think I'm getting reli-
gion. But, Barry Sanders, is one of a
kind," Fontes said. "I've seen them
all. I watch miles and miles of film. I
see hundreds each year.
"But when they made him, that's
the prototype you want. Guys, he's the
best I've ever seen. And he's a whale of
an individual. He's just one guy you
want on the team."
A 63-yard run by Sanders set up the
go-ahead 1Lyard TD dive by Derrick
Moore with 9:02 left. Sanders broke

its own 46-yard line.
The win was a payback for a 38-
30 Green Bay victory three weeks
ago when the Packers (6-7) held the
NFL's leading rusher to 47 yards in
Milwaukee. The Lions (7-6) moved
ahead of the Packers in the NFC Cen-
tral with the victory.
"This hurts, sure," Holmgren said.
"But we'll continue to play hard right
to the end."
Sanders now leads the NFL with
1,594 yards. That leaves him 406 shy
