Brett Favre was always known as a gun-slinging, risk-taking, big-armed quarterback. And nothing shows that type of mentality more than throwing a deep bomb on your first play of overtime.

With single coverage on Greg Jennings on the outside, Favre turned around and thew it seemingly as far as he could, giving Jennings the opportunity to go out and get it. And the end result was magnificent for Packers fans.

It seemed like everyone knew where Favre was going with that ball except for the Broncos defense, which was definitely caught off guard, probably expecting a do-nothing run on the first play of extra time. But that wasn't the Favre way. He saw his shot and he took it.

It didn't always work well, but it sure did this time.
