Favre throws six; Rodgers throws picks
As ESPN research points out, on an afternoon Brett Favre accomplished a feat for the first time in his illustrious career, his Green Bay Packers replacement managed to do something Favre did all the time.
Favre threw a career-high six touchdowns Sunday to propel the New York Jets past the Arizona Cardinals 56-35 in the Meadowlands. His successor in Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers, threw three interceptions for the first time in his nascent career.
Favre has thrown three or more interceptions an amazing 34 times. Maybe even more incredible is that Favre has eight career victories when throwing three or more picks.
