    Favre now winningest QB in NFL history after Packers' win

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (ESPN.com news services) -- Brett Favre didn't need a rocket arm to become the winningest quarterback in NFL history on Sunday. His 17 years of football knowledge and a near-perfect second half against a bad defense were plenty.

    Favre completed his first 14 second-half passes and threw three touchdown passes to rally the Green Bay Packers to a 35-13 victory over the New York Giants' porous defense.

    "Maybe someday down the road it will mean a lot," a typically humble Favre said after the 149th win of his career, moving past Hall of Famer John Elway.

    What meant more to Favre was the game ball his teammates handed him after the Packers got off to their first 2-0 start since 2001.

    "I'm not going to sit here and lie to you," added Favre, who was 29-of-38 for 286 yards and one interception. "I'm not going to turn it down. I've always been about the team. That hasn't changed. I think it's unfair that the quarterback gets labeled with wins and losses. I think it's a team effort."

    While Favre refused to bask in the glory, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said any NFL record is a monumental achievement.
