Brett Favre will make his preseason debut for the New York Jets on Saturday night against the Redskins. When Favre was with the Green Bay Packers, he was the starting quarterback in four games against the Redskins -- and won them all. He first faced Washington in 1991, when he was a rookie backup with the Atlanta Falcons. Although he has thrown for four touchdowns overall against the Redskins, interceptions are more prevalent. Favre has been intercepted eight times, most notably twice last year by Sean Taylor.
