Brett Favre Achieves Another Milestone

Francois GendronSenior Writer IOctober 12, 2010

The New York Jets and the Minnesota Vikings were facing each other in the Monday night classic this week. Despite Brett Favre's three touchdown passes, the Jets edged the Vikings by the score of 29-20.

Yesterday, Favre became the first NFL quarterback to register 500 TD passes or more in a career. During the third quarter, Favre registered his 500th TD pass when he threw a long ball that WR Randy Moss caught in the end zone.

The newest acquisition for the Vikings had a positive impact on Minnesota who was trailing 12-0 before Moss' TD.

Up 12-7, the Jets registered their fifth field goal of the match after a fantastic kickoff return and took an eight-point lead, 15-7.

Despite a nagging tendinitis to his right elbow, Favre orchestrated another successful drive. Percy Harvin's 37-yard TD reception brought the Vikings within two points. But the two-point conversion failed, the Jets still up 15-13.

Both teams exchanged another touchdown, as Favre registered his 502nd career TD pass when Harvin caught his second TD pass of the night. Jets still up, 22-20.

In a last attempt to win the game, the Vikings were unable to move the ball.

Dwight Lowery iced the game when he picked Favre's pass and ran into the end zone.

Final score:

New York Jets 29, Minnesota Vikings 20

The Vikings are now 1-3, not a very good start, but they will face another 1-3 team in the Dallas Cowboys next week. Both teams will be desperate for a win.
