Trailing 24-20 in the 4th quarter to the San Francisco 49ers, Brett Favre showed everyone why the Vikings were willing to bend over backwards to bring him in as their QB for 2009.
Video: Brett Favre Throws Game-Winning Touchdown Pass to Greg Lewis
Favre, under intense pressure, found Greg Lewis in the back of the endzone for the touchdown, giving the Vikings a 27-24 lead with :02 left. Lost in the hubbub over Favre throwing the TD will be the incredible effort by Lewis to make the grab. He did a fantastic job on the play.
The Vikings would hang on and move to 3-0. The frisky 49ers fell to 2-1…but also showed that they are a force to be reckoned with in the NFC.
Favre finished the game 24-46 for 301 yards. He threw 2 TDs and one INT, his first pick of the season.
Next week, Favre and the Vikings face Favre’s old team, the Green Bay Packers, on Monday night.
Brace yourself. You won’t hear about anything else next week.
