EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Chad Pennington walked off the field where he spent his first eight NFL seasons, surrounded by cameras and jubilant teammates after leading the Miami Dolphins to an improbable AFC East title.
On the New York Jets' sideline, a disappointed Brett Favre jogged off the field and into the locker room, maybe for the last time in a storied career.
Pennington, cut in the offseason by the Jets to make room for Favre, threw two touchdown passes in leading the Dolphins to a division title with a 24-17 victory Sunday.
Favre will have an MRI exam Monday on his ailing right shoulder, saying it would affect his decision on whether he'll come back for another season with the New York Jets.
The 39-year-old struggled down the stretch in his first season with New York, throwing two touchdowns and nine interceptions in his last five games. He was picked off three times in the Jets' 24-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
Favre says he's been feeling discomfort in the shoulder for quite some time.
