Favre's Personal Best: 88 Percent Completion Rate Against Seattle
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Brett Favre has added a few more records to his overcrowded resume.

Favre completed a career-best 88 percent of his passes for Minnesota against Seattle on Sunday. He was replaced by Tarvaris Jackson late in the third quarter with the Vikings leading comfortably.

Favre went 22 for 25 to also set Minnesota's single-game franchise record for completion percentage. Randall Cunningham held the previous mark, 84 percent in 1998 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Favre also had his 22nd career four-touchdown passing game, passing Dan Marino for most in NFL history.

Favre was shown on the videoboard as his records were announced, and the crowd started chanting, "M-V-P!"
