Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has done something he has never done in 41 years of his life this Sunday and it doesn’t have to do with Jenn Sterger, cheating on his wife, or wearing Wrangler jeans. For a change of pace, at least for Favre, it has to do with football.
Brett Favre threw for a career high 446 yards in a comeback-overtime win against the Arizona Cardinals 27-24.
“There was a point in that game where I think everyone in the building thought this is not going well. We don’t stand a chance,” said Favre, who has 46 career fourth-quarter comeback wins. “But we did.”
While the Vikings coming back from 14 points down in the final four and half minutes is quite an accomplishment it still is mind boggling that after all these years Favre has never thrown for more yards in 292 games.
In fact Favre has only thown for over 400 yards in one other game although he has thrown for over 4,000 yards in six seasons while throwing for over 3,000 yards 18 consecutive seasons.
Favre’s 62nd game passing for more than 300 yards moves him one game closer to the record of 63 set by Dan Marino.
