SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Unheralded Shaun Hill upstaged Brett Favre with two touchdown passes Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers upended the visiting New York Jets 24-14.

Hill, now 4-0 as a starter, was 28-of-29 passing for 285 yards and tossed TD passes to Bryant Johnson and Frank Thomas, who left the game with an ankle injury in the third quarter.

Favre was 20-of-31 for 137 and was intercepted once as the Jets (8-5) remained in a three-way tie with Miami and New England for first place in the AFC East. The loss was Favre's first ever against the Niners and snapped a four-game road winning streak for the Jets.

Thomas Jones ran for 56 yards and a touchdown that gave him 14 for the season and tied the Jets' record for TDs in a season.

A 32-yard field goal by San Francisco's Joe Nedney broke a 14-14 tie early in the fourth quarter. The 49ers (5-8) put the game away with a lengthy scoring drive capped by Hill's 3-yard TD pass to Johnson with 6:05 to play.
