article imageBrett Favre Returns In A Less Than Stellar Performance

NFL legend Brett Favre made his return last night for the Minnesota Vikings in a less than spectacular performance, but the Vikes still won 17-13.
Brett Favre made a less than spectacular return to professional football last night at the Minnesota Metrodome as starting quarterback for the Vikings, in a 17-13 win over the Kansas City Chiefs that was unremarkable. Favre played two series on offense, and could not manage to drive his new team to a first down. He completed only one of four passes, for a mere four yards.
Still, Favre was afforded a hero's welcome by Minnesota fans, as witnessed by frequent ovations and the numbers of the Vikings faithful wearing the purple number 4 jersey.
Tavaris Jackson replaced Favre, and was the driving force in the Vikings victory going 12 of 15 for 205 yards and tossing two touchdown passes. Up until this week, it was widely believed that Jackson would be the Vikings starting quarterback this season. After signing Favre, that scenario is highly unlikely barring injury.
