Replay: Green Bay 23, Vikings 16

  • Article by: CHRIS MILLER , Star Tribune

Brett Favre, Packers: Let's see ... 32-for-45 for 344 yards, two TDs, no interceptions, a 108.0 QB rating and only one sack ... this kid has a future in the league.

Jon Ryan, Packers: Punter had a highlight-reel run on a fake and also a key 58-yard kick on his way to a 49-yard average.


Fourth quarter, 1:11 remaining

Second-and-10 for the Vikings at the Packers 34

The situation: The Vikings trailed 23-16 but had a final chance after recovering a Packers fumble.

The play: Kelly Holcomb's pass bounced off WR Bobby Wade and Atari Bigby intercepted for Green Bay as the Vikings howled for an interference penalty on Charles Woodson.


Tarvaris Jackson sat out with an injury, so we'll tweak our weekly feature with Kelly Holcomb:

Play: A critical early overthrow and mobility issues have fans eager to see Jackson again. Grade: Wynn

Leadership: Can you pick up a guy after training camp and expect him to be a leader? No. Grade: Wynn

Stats: Hit 21 of 39 for 258 yards and a late TD pass. Grade: Wade

Overall: The most popular player on an NFL team, tradition says, is the backup quarterback. Now that Holcomb has led the Vikings to only two TDs in two games, he's not that popular. Grade: Wade


Offense: 4; Defense: 3

The battle rages. A late TD Sunday enabled the offense to take a lead in the season series.


Peterson had a 55-yard run and Taylor had a 37-yard run as they combined for 152 rushing yards. Moving the ball wasn't a major issue, but putting it in the end zone was.


WEEK 6: Vikings at Chicago, noon Oct. 14, Soldier Field

About the Bears: Chicago's high hopes have been dashed by a 1-3 start and a series of devastating injuries. They lost 37-27 in Detroit on Sunday, and play at unbeaten Green Bay on Sunday. Brian Griese replaced Rex Grossman at QB but wasn't much of an improvement.

Dangerous player: Devin Hester had a 97-yard kickoff return for a TD on Sunday, his seventh return TD in the past two seasons.
