Brett Favre

It seems that a pallor has been cast over anything the Vikings do as a team because of the Brett Favre pictures debacle. Favre, when he was a member of the New York Jets, may or may not have sent lewd photos to Jenn Sterger. Sterger was employed as a sports writer by the Jets at the time. A full NFL investigation is under way, but who really cares? What is far more important was the Jets-Vikings game.

Jets Vikings game of inches

No one should really care about the Brett Favre pictures thing. There were more important matters at hand on “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, one being the Jets-Vikings game. Brett Favre faced off against the team that took him after he left the Green Bay Packers, and the stage was set for an epic contest. Minnesota’s offense was stifled and barely able to pick up any first downs for the entire first half. Favre fumbled twice and both led to field goals by the opposition. Neither Favre or Mark Sanchez had a spectacular night, as the New Meadowlands was soaked by rain. The first touchdown scored in the game came in the third quarter, as Favre connected a 37-yard touchdown pass to Randy Moss.

Game lost in last two minutes

Going into the last two minutes of the game, the Vikings had rebounded by scoring two fourth quarter touchdowns. The Jets led by only two points, and the Vikings had the ball. Favre, who holds the record for passing touchdowns and yards, also showed why he holds the record for most interceptions. Favre was intercepted by Dwight Lowery, who ran in for a touchdown.

Purple people eaters beaten by Mean Gang Green

The final score was 20 to 29. The Brett Favre pictures scandal will be handled by the NFL. In reality, what people care about is whether one of the greatest quarterbacks of the last 20 years can still make plays. On “Monday Night Football,” it was evident he still can.
