Minnesota, Oct 6 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The forty-year-old Brett Favre, notched up a cool distinction when on Monday night he became the first quarterback in history to beat all the 32 NFL teams.
According to reports, Favre passed for 271 yards and three touchdowns on Monday to lead the Minnesota Vikings to a 30-23 win over Green Bay.
The three-time league MVP, who played 16 seasons earlier with the Packers, was playing in his NFL-record 273rd straight game. He connected on 24-of-31 passes.
The Vikings (4-0) have won their first four games in a season for the first time since 2003 when they won their first six, but finished 9-7 and missed the playoffs.
With this feat, he silenced his critics, esp. Packers general manager Ted Thompson, who had earlier replaced Brett with a younger and fitter Aaron Rodgers, two years ago.
As expected, Brett himself and his fans were over the moon. Over this feat, ”I don’t know how to explain it. I felt right, but I guess I never thought I’d be in that situation,” Favre said.
”I definitely wanted to get this win for Brett,” teammate Adrian Peterson said. ”He downplayed it all week, but I just knew it meant a lot to him. I could see it in his eyes.”
