There was talk that the Jets would unleash Brett Favre in his third game and he is throwing often. However, two throws have been intercepted and another sure interception was dropped. The interception that was returned by Antonio Cromartie wasn't Favre's fault. Cromartie made a great play.

But Favre's second interception was horribly overthrown. San Diego safety Eric Weddle, basically playing center field, caught the ball. San Diego turned the interception into a touchdown and a 31-14 lead over the Jets. Favre has now thrown an NFL record 292 interceptions.
