Favre stripped of completion

Posted by: under Vikings, Vikings offense, Brett Favre, Sidney Rice Updated: October 26, 2009 - 7:09 PM

Quarterback Brett Favre completed 34 of 51 passes for 334 yards in the Vikings' 27-17 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday. On Monday, Favre lost one of those completions.

According to the Associated Press, an official scoring change stripped Favre of a completion and officially leaves him 33 of 50. Favre was errantly given a completion for no yards to Sidney Rice with 8:16 remaining on an apparent 10-yard touchdown pass play that was nullified by a 10-yard tripping penalty on tight end Jeff Dugan.

That means that Rice finished with 10 catches for 136 yards, not 11 catches.
