GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Brett Favre is now tied with Dan Marino's all-time NFL record for career touchdowns.

He threw his 420th career touchdown pass in the 4th quarter of the Green Bay Packers' game against the San Diego Chargers at Lambeau Field yesterday.

Favre was credited with a 57-yard completion to Greg Jennings, who ran a slant pattern from the left side.

The touchdown, with 2:03 remaining, gave the Packers a 24-21 lead.

Following the touchdown, Favre sprinted down field with his arms in the air and got down on his knees to congratulate Jennings.

Favre then picked up his favorite receiver Donald Driver before heading to the sideline where teammates were lining up to hug the new record holder.

Favre is playing his 17th NFL season and turns 38 next month.

Favre says he could care less about the record and it wouldn't have meant anything if they didn't win the game.
