Favre wins in return to Green Bay

Filed under: Football — Tags: , , , — Nicholas @ 23:45

The Vikings held on, after dominating the Packers in the first half, to sweep the series 2-0 with a 38-26 win at Green Bay:

Brett Favre jogged out of the tunnel in a purple helmet. He might as well have been wearing a black hat.

No, Favre didn’t seem to relish playing the villain in his return to Lambeau Field. But it was going to take more than a chorus of boos to throw him off his game.

For the second time in less than a month, Favre sliced up his former team and stuck it to the franchise that cast him aside as the Minnesota Vikings beat the Green Bay Packers 38-26 at Lambeau on Sunday. Despite being jeered repeatedly by Packers fans who once cheered his every move, Favre completed 17 of 28 passes for 244 yards and four touchdowns without an interception.

The game leaves the Vikings at 7-1 going into their bye week, and clearly in the lead for the NFC North division title.
