Packers beat Vikings 28-24


GREEN BAY (WKOW) --  Brett Favre threw three second-half interceptions to his former team and the Green Bay Packers held on to beat the Minnesota Vikings 28-24 Sunday night.

In what may have been Favre's last appearance at Lambeau Field, Favre had appeared to deliver another signature comeback win with an apparent touchdown strike to Percy Harvin with 48 seconds left -- but the play was ruled incomplete on a replay review.

Then, with one more chance on fourth-and-15 at the 20, Favre threw incomplete out of bounds.

Green Bay now sits at 4-3. The Pack turned a pair of third-quarter Favre interceptions into touchdowns that erased the Vikings' halftime lead.

That includes a 32-yard return for a touchdown by Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop.

Aaron Rodgers was 21 of 34 for 295 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.


GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- Packers and Vikings are renewing their rivalry in what could very well be the final game for Brett Favre at Lambeau Field.

Favre bringing a lot of attention; he reportedly admitted to sending voicemails to former Jets employee Jenn Sterger earlier Sunday. That's a new twist in the NFL's investigation of Favre and these reports.

A lot on the line regardless for both the Packers and the Vikings.

Ryan Pickett, Packers Defensive End, says, "Division opponent rival, we don't care for the Vikings too much, they don't care for us. It's a big game. We really want to win this game."

Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers says, "I think you gotta be good on first and second down. That's where it starts. You have to put yourself in third and manageable. We're not going to convert every third down, but if you get yourself in third and six or less, those are manageable, especially at home... Those are third downs we need to convert more times than not."

Kickoff is set for 7:20 PM in Green Bay.
