Favre Not Phased by Latest Record

Green Bay Packers' Brett Favre, right, congratulates teammate Charles Woodson (21) after Woodson returned an interception for a 57-yard touchdown 

Just like when he broke the record for touchdown passes, setting the record for most INT’s in a career by a QB didn’t seem to phase Brett Favre much on Sunday. Favre set the record when he threw a bad pass Sunday in the third quarter that was hauled in by the Redskins Sean Taylor. Despite the pick, the Packers got the hard fought 17-14 win, and Brett was still all smiles after the game. “I could care less,” Favre said. “We won the game. I’m glad it’s over, just like the other records. We’re 5-1, so it feels a lot better than having no picks and being 1-5.”

The passing game for the Pack had a tough go of it with a wet field and rain falling, Favre was just 19-for-37 for 188 yards. There is no question that the Packers were fortunate to win this contest, and Favre seemed to realize that after the win that puts the team at 5-1. The QB also may have to deal with an injury, as he was limping after the game and said that the week off the team has coming up will help. “It really doesn’t feel very good right now, but the bye week will help a little bit,” Favre said. “I’m sure it will hurt two weeks from now; it hurt before the game.”
