TEMPE, Ariz. — It wasn't Green Bay Packers weather. Brett Favre didn't mind.
Favre finally looked like a three-time NFL most valuable player as he picked Arizona apart Sunday, passing for 277 yards and a touchdown and directing six other scoring drives as the Packers handed the Cardinals a 29-3 loss.
The Cardinals (1-2) hoped the heat would be a 12th man, but the temperature at kickoff was 87 degrees--the coolest weather of the four games played on a September afternoon in the desert. Arizona won the three previous September day games at Sun Devil Stadium.
The Packers shook out off their early slump and played like the Super Bowl teams of the '90s to win their second consecutive NFC game after losing their first two to AFC opponents.
