Brett Favre Scores NFL Record
Announcers Joe and Hal are announcing the Green Bay Packers vs. the Detroit Lions earlier today on KRSV in Minnesota…
Joe: It’s late in the third quarter. The Lions and Packers are playing cat and mouse with the touchdown concept. Green Bay leads 10-6. Detroit has just received the ball after a 51 yard punt by Packers’ kicker Ryan
Hal: Kitna steps up. It’s intercepted! Woodson has intercepted. He’s going back. It looks like Kitna is going to get him.
Joe: Flag on the play.
Hal: Looks like Kitna got some facemask on that one.
Joe: So, not only does Woodsong return the interception for 18 yards, but Kitna is also slapped with a 15 yard face mask penalty
Hal: The Packers line up on the Detroit 12
Joe: Brett Favre is on the verge of NFL history. He is just one completion away from setting the NFL all-time pass complete record.
Hal: Favre, back to pass, incomplete. Second and 10 from the 12
Joe: It’s pretty clear the Packers are going for a Favre record here
Hal: Favre back to pass again. Incomplete. Third and 10 from the 12.
Joe: Perhaps third time is a charm!
Hal: Favre back to pass… he connects with Paris Lenon in the end zone with 1:36 left in the 3rd quarter! Oh my god! We are witnessing NFL history in the making! WOW!
Joe: Favre has just become the all-time leader in pass completions! What a pass! What a completion! Brett Favre has just passed Dan Marino for the all-time completion record. Oh, wait…
Hal: Is there a flag on the play?
Joe: No. I just looked at the roster chart. Lenon plays for the Detroit Lions. So does that still count as the record breaker?
Hal: The stats team in the booth just informed me that if we were to exclude Favre interceptions from his statistics, Brett Favre has only completed 5 passes in his entire NFL career.
… Anyway. Congratulations to Brett Favre for pulling a Dan Marino and setting another NFL record at the lowest point of his career. But, hey! At least Favre has a ring.
