Broadway Brett: Favre throws 6 TDs in Jets’ win

Somewhere, Joe Namath had to be smiling.

While Brett Favre isn’t exactly a reincarnation of Broadway Joe, he sure looked like Broadway Brett on Sunday. The longtime star quarterback did something for the Jets he never accomplished during his storied stint in Green Bay, throwing for six touchdowns in a 56-35 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

‘‘Throwing six touchdown passes was awesome,’’ said Favre, who was plagued by a sore ankle during the week. ‘‘That had nothing to do with how I felt I played. It was one of those games. More importantly, I felt the overall game itself, I managed it well.

‘‘It’s just one game. Don’t expect six touchdowns every week, but we, as an offensive unit, should see and expect a lot of ourselves.’’

The Cardinals (2-2) expect a lot more from themselves than the six turnovers Kurt Warner was victimized for. Arizona trailed 34-0 at halftime as New York (2-2) got three Favre to Laveranues Coles TD passes and Darrelle Revis’ 32-yard interception return for a score.

Arizona wide receiver Anquan Boldin was carted off the field after a scary helmet-to-helmet collision with New York safety Eric Smith in the end zone with 27 seconds remaining.

Boldin was moving all his extremities on the field and was talking to his teammates, but was immobilized and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York for precautionary reasons.
