Favre Works a Miracle: Vikings 27, 49ers 24

Before a home crowd, with 1:17 remaining and no timeouts, the Vikings were down by four to the 49ers.

Enter Brett Favre, who turns 40 on October 10th. Favre led Minnesota down to the Niners’ 32. With 11 seconds remaining, he snapped, scrambled, and found Greg Lewis in the end zone. Lewis barely got both feet inbounds, as was validated by official review.

A last-gasp hail mary on San Francisco’s part fell short with two seconds left, and the Vikings won, 27-24. Wow.
