Favre looks good, before Brennan rallies Redskins
| READ THE FULL STORY
The star of the show may have been future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre in last night's game between the New York Jets and Washington Redskins, but former Hawaii signal-caller Colt Brennan did his best to steal it.
Long after Favre had left the playing field, Brennan drove Washington 80 yards in the final 2 minutes, setting up a 33-yard touchdown pass to Jason Goode to rally the Redskins to a 13-10 victory. Brennan hit four of five passes for 79 yards and one touchdown. He was sacked twice.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. » Brett Favre second-guessed himself at times during the last few weeks. He doubted whether he was doing the right thing by coming out of retirement and leaving Green Bay.
A successful debut with the New York Jets erased all that.
"I knew I had made the right decision," Favre said, "when I was on the field tonight."
Favre was solid in his brief Jets debut after a week of cramming to learn his new playbook. He threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Dustin Keller to cap his second series in a 13-10 loss to the Washington Redskins last night.
"It worked out better than I thought it would, not that I thought it would go badly," he said. "It was like starting all over again. I had some feelings that I haven't felt in 17 years, but that's a good thing."
Favre finished 5 for 6 for 48 yards and the touchdown.
Former Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan, meanwhile, drove the Redskins to a late touchdown, capped by a 33-yard scoring pass to Jason Goode with 1:09 remaining. Brennan completed four of five passes for 79 yards.
