In a game that featured Randy moss for the first time in a Vikings uniform since his first start as a Rookie in his glory days to the battle of 2 different generation quaterbacks. Veteran Brett Farve and the Vikings took on Young superstar Quarterback Mark Sanchez and the #1 ranked New York Jets.From the begging it was a drama filled game with excitement and Towards the end of the game it looked to be another one of Brett farves last minute comeback heroics. For most of the game Favre looked like he could do absolutely nothing right, but he got hot late in the third quarter. In the third quarter, Favre drilled a completion to Percy Harvin to go over 70,000 passing yards for his career, and then he dropped a beautiful pass into the hands of Moss in the end zone for his 500th career touchdown pass.
Minnesota couldn’t celebrate the Moss touchdown for long, as Brad Smith returned the ensuing kickoff 86 yards for the Jets to set up a Nick Folk field goal. Folk was one of the best players on the field Monday night, which was good for the Jets even though Folk’s field goals were a symptom of the inability of the Jets’ offense to reach the end zone.
Favre threw an outstanding pass to find Harvin over the middle for the game’s second touchdown, which made the score 15-13. But the Vikings wasted a timeout before the two-point conversion attempt, which was unsuccessful when Favre missed an open receiver in the end zone.
The Jets finally got into the end zone with four and a half minutes to play when Shonn Greene ran for a 23-yard touchdown. Greene and LaDainian Tomlinson had big games while Mark Sanchez struggled.
After Greene’s touchdown Favre marched the Jets right back down the field and hit Harvin with a great touchdown pass in the end zone.
The greatly anticipated debut of Brett Favre-to-Randy Moss displayed firepower Monday night, but at the end Dwight Lowery returned an interception for a touchdown to seal a Jets victory at the New Meadowlands Stadium, 29-20.
The big questions heading into the Vikings-Jets game were whether Moss would make a difference to the Vikings’ offense, and whether Favre would be distracted by the NFL’s investigation into claims that he sexually harassed a former Jets employee.
Once the game started, it was ugly, as both teams played mistake-filled football in the New Jersey rain. Both offenses, however, would click at different times as the game wore on.
