Packers Beat Vikings 28-24

Senior writer jclombardi briefly highlights Packers win over Vikings.

Packers win thriller over Vikings: Favre threw three second-half interceptions to his former team and the Packers held on to beat the Vikings 28-24 on Sunday night. Favre 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. With one more chance on fourth-and-15 at the 20, Favre threw incomplete out of bounds. Green Bay (4-3) turned a pair of Favre’s third-quarter interceptions into touchdowns that erased the Vikings’ halftime lead, including a 32-yard return by linebacker Desmond Bishop. It was the ninth interception that was returned for a touchdown in the league on Sunday. QB Rodgers was 21 of 34 for 295 yards with two touchdowns and two big interceptions. “It’s huge,” Rodgers said. “It’s a great night. The crowd was electric, we needed this win. It’s a long season, but we had to have this one.”
