GREEN BAY, Wis., Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Brett Favre tied the NFL record for touchdown passes Sunday in a 369-yard performance that helped lead Green Bay past the stumbling San Diego Chargers 31-24.
Favre completed 28-of-45 passes for three touchdowns, tying Dan Marino’s record of 420 career TD passes, as the Packers (3-0) remained undefeated and sent San Diego (1-2) to its second consecutive loss -- equaling the number of regular-season games the Chargers lost all last season.
Favre tied Marino’s record with a 57-yard TD pass with 2:03 to play that gave Green Bay the lead for good. The Packers followed it up with a 1-yard TD run by Brandon Jackson with 59 seconds to play to make it 31-31.
Bubba Franks and Donald Driver caught TD passes from Favre in the second quarter.
