MIAMI (AP) — Brett Favre hardly looked like the retiring type, raising his arms to signal a touchdown, then leaping and skipping to the bench, where he vaulted into the arms of two teammates.

Six months after Favre decided to call it a career before changing his mind, he made a successful debut with his new team as Broadway Brett, throwing for two scores to help the New York Jets beat the Miami Dolphins 20-14 on Sunday.

Favre's new beginning had a happy ending thanks to two late stands by the Jets' defense. Favre finished 15-for-22 for 194 yards and his 161st victory, extending his NFL record for starting quarterbacks.
