Favre passes Elway on two career lists

CINCINNATI (Oct. 30, 2005) -- Brett Favre passed John Elway and moved into second place in career passes and yards.

Favre surpassed Elway's marks early in the fourth quarter of Green Bay's 21-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Favre was 26-for-39 overall for 279 yards, but he was intercepted five times in a regular-season game for the first time in his career.

He moved ahead of Elway with 51,754 yards and 7,264 attempts. Dan Marino holds the league records with 61,361 yards and 8,358 passes.

Favre made his 212th consecutive start, adding to his NFL record for a quarterback. The five interceptions were one shy of his personal high, set in a playoff loss to St. Louis after the 2001 season.
