EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Brett Favre threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Dustin Keller to cap the second series of his New York Jets debut against the Washington Redskins on Saturday night.
Favre, acquired from Green Bay last week, took the snap, looked to his left and found the rookie tight end in the end zone to give the Jets a 7-0 lead with 5:25 remaining in the first quarter. Favre clapped in celebration after the score and high-fived several of his new teammates, including Keller.
The three-time league MVP's debut lasted 14 plays - coach Eric Mangini said he expected Favre to take between eight and 12 snaps - and finished his first game 5-of-6 for 48 yards and the touchdown. He was replaced by backup Kellen Clemens with the Jets leading 7-3.
Favre, who said his arm felt fatigued early in the week, looked strong in his two series. He threw a crisp 19-yard pass to Jerricho Cotchery on third down to get the ball down to the Redskins 20 on the scoring drive.
