Watch: Brett Favre smashes plates with passes on Jimmy Fallon

Thursday December 3rd, 2015

The gunslinger had some trouble with his accuracy, although he appeared to still be able to put plenty of speed on the throws.

Favre got three of the six targets although he did cheat a little bit by knocking one out of Fallon’s hand before he had a chance to throw it. That number is still not good enough to dethrone Drew Brees who beat Twilight actor Taylor Lautner in the inaugural Throwdown.
