EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Brett Favre picked a near-perfect way to become the winningest quarterback in NFL history.

Favre completed his first 14 passes of the second half and threw three touchdown passes to rally the Green Bay Packers to a 35-13 win over Eli Manning and the New York Giants yesterday.

The victory was the 149th of Favre's 17-year career and gave him one more than Hall of Famer John Elway.

It also gave the Packers their first 2-0 start since they won their first three in 2001.

The loss was the second straight for the error-prone Giants, something that hasn't happened at the start of a season since 1996 - the year Dan Reeves got fired.

Tom Coughlin, who came into the season under pressure to do more than make the playoffs, may now be really under the gun.
