EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Brett Favre had a solid performance yesterday throwing three touchdown passes as he became the winningest quarterback in NFL history.

Playing against the Giants, Favre threw a go-ahead two-yard touchdown pass to Bubba Franks on the Packers' opening series of the second half.

The eight-time Pro Bowl quarterback added TD tosses of three yards to Donald Lee and 10 yards to Donald Driver after New York rookie Ahmad Bradshaw fumbled the ensuing kickoff.

Favre finished 29-38 for 286 yards, including 18-21 for 147 yards in the second half as he constantly exposed the Giants' suspect defense with short passes.

The 35-13 win was Favre's 149th in his 17-year career.

That's one more win than Hall of Famer John Elway.
