Green Bay Packers end skid with win over Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings

Coming into Week 7 both the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings had a lot at stake as they were set to face off in this NFC North showdown that would determine the second place standing in the division and quite possibly which team will be competing for the division title and which team could be on the outside looking in on the playoffs.

There is no question that this game was bound to be a close one with the Brett Favre saga continuing and so much at stake, but despite this matchup almost certainly coming down to the wire, Aaron Rodgers and company were favored to come out on top with a -2.5 point spread.

No other rivalry in the NFL over the past two years has gotten as much publicity or hype than when the Packers and Vikings go head to head, but this game one Sunday night was emotional to say the least for one man as it would be the last time Brett Favre would be under center at Lambeau Field.

Fortunately, this game between these two NFC Conference heavyweights was epic to say the least as it was decided in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter.

Even though both teams had their fair share of turnovers as Brett Favre threw three interceptions and Aaron Rodgers also threw a couple, this game came down to the wire as the Minnesota Vikings had an opportunity to seal the deal in the fourth quarter as they were down 28-24 and in striking distance to deliver the final blow to the Green Bay Packers.

So with only seconds remaining, Brett Favre and company were doing everything within their power to get in the endzone, but unfortunately, they weren’t so lucky as the Silver Fox’s last pass at Lambeau Field was just over the head of superstar wide receiver Randy Moss in the endzone and the game was officially over.

There is no question that the Minnesota Vikings had plenty of opportunities to win this game and probably should have, but the Green Bay Packers were ahead when the final whistle blew and now Brett Favre and his boys will have to find a way to win over the next eight weeks of the NFL regular season.

Despite being 2-4 and winless on the road this season, the Minnesota Vikings will have a chance to turn things around this year, but it will not be easy as they will have an even tougher task ahead of them next week against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.

Personally, I believe that the Vikings can get the best of Tom Brady and company next week, but the Patriots continue to prove that they are arguably the best team in the league right now with just one loss on the season to the New York Jets.

It will be interesting to see what happens in Randy Moss’ return to Foxboro!
