GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Brett Favre was intercepted for the 278th time on Sunday against the Washington Redskins to set the career mark.
Favre, who passed George Blanda for the dubious record, had rookie James Jones open deep down field on a busted play with 11:20 left in the third quarter. But Favre's throw floated too long and was underthrown, allowing safety Sean Taylor to move over and make a leaping interception.
Favre had been 12-of-22 for 148 yards to that point.
Two weeks earlier, Favre set the career mark for touchdown passes with No. 421 against Minnesota.
Washington was also the team that Favre had his first two interceptions against in 1991, when he was a rookie with the Atlanta Falcons. In that game, he went 0-for-4 in a 56-17 loss and was traded to Green Bay at the end of the year.
