EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- After struggling all game, Brett Favre connected with Laveranues Coles for a 15-yard touchdown pass with 1 minute left as the New York Jets escaped with a 28-24 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
The heavily favored Jets overcame three interceptions by Favre and an upset-minded Chiefs team using its third-string quarterback.
Leon Washington returned Steve Weatherford's punt 37 yards -- and even dragged the punter on his back for a few of those yards -- to put the Jets (4-3) in terrific field position at the Chiefs 46.
After taking a sack, Favre connected with Chansi Stuckey for 18 yards, Dustin Keller for 5 and Washington for 5 more. After Washington had a 5-yard run, Favre floated a pass to Coles, who made a one-handed catch in the front of the end zone.
