Vikings vs Packers: Brett Favre Wins Round One | NFL Player Rankings
This was the night Brett Favre has waited on for more than a year now. The game he would finally get to stick it to his old team and lead the Vikings to a victory. For the night Favre had a strong game as he threw for three touchdown passes.
It’s Brett Favre’s Night
Favre was on point with most of his throws tonight going 24-of-31 for 271 yards and the three touchdown scores. The Vikings beat the Packers 30-to-23 as the Pack made it close at the end.
While Favre had a strong game it was nice to see Bernard Berrian have a good game as he’s had a very slow start to the season. Berrian had six catches for 75 yards and a touchdown.
It looks like Berrian is healthy right at the same time Favre has his timing down in the offense.
Expect a solid season from Berrian from this point forward.
Vikings Defense Sacks Rodgers Eight Times
Jared Allen led the Vikings tonight with 4.5 sacks and one of his sacks went for a safety. The Packers offensive line continued their problems on the edge, and they lost another tackle to injury during the game.
If the Packers are going to keep Aaron Rodgers healthy this season, they need to step up their pass protection moving forward. Green Bay has a bye this coming week, hopefully they can correct some things for protection in that time off.
