Pennington TD, Favre boo-boo swing game


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The debate between Brett Favre and Chad Pennington could be summed up on back-to-back plays right before the 2-minute warning in the first half.

Pennington threw a 27-yard strike to Ted Ginn to put the Miami Dolphins ahead of the New York Jets, 7-6, at the Meadowlands. The play capped a six-play drive, all passes, with Pennington completing five for 60 yards.

On the next play from scrimmage, Favre threw an interception to Dolphins rookie defensive end Phillip Merling, who rumbled 25 yards for a touchdown.

Dolphins on top, 14-6 with 2 minutes left in the second quarter.
