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.
