MINNEAPOLIS -- Interesting scene here during Minnesota’s first offensive drive. I don’t know if some people needed permanent proof of Brett Favre in a Vikings jersey, but camera flashes went off throughout the possession.
I thought it was notable that the Vikings called Adrian Peterson’s number on their first four plays, and five of their first six. Remember, those plays are scripted long before the game. So if Favre felt any heightened emotions as he jogged onto the field, the script allowed him to calm down before he had to make his first throw.
Frankly, Favre seemed collected throughout the drive, which he capped with a 1-yard touchdown pass to tight end Visanthe Shiancoe. Favre completed all five of his passes on the possession.
