Congratulations, Brett Favre: First Player in NFL History With 300 Interceptions

New York Jets quarterback Brett Favre added another milestone to his Hall of Fame career today, becoming the first player in NFL history to throw 300 career interceptions.

Interception No. 300 was an incredibly costly one: The Jets led the Buffalo Bills 23-10 in the fourth quarter and were just trying to protect their lead, but Favre threw a bad pass that Bills cornerback Jabari Greer picked off and returned 42 yards for a touchdown, getting the Bills right back in the game.

Favre is one of the all-time great quarterbacks, but he's also one of the all-time mistake-prone quarterbacks. He leads the league in interceptions this season, and as the 300 milestone reminds us, no quarterback in history has matched Favre in the interception department.
