Old man played pretty well last night.
Making his first lengthy preseason appearance, Favre completed 13-of-18 passes for 142 yards and a touchdown last night against the Texans. He also threw a pretty dirty block on a cornerback from the Wildcat formation.
Favre’s touchdown pass came on a short screen pass to Chester Taylor before the end of the first half. He also had another pass into the endzone go between the fingers of Percy Harvin, so he should have ended with two scores and no picks.
Not too shabby.
All in all, I think Vikings’ fans should be pretty excited about the offensive prospects for 2009. With Favre under center and Adrian Peterson behind him, opposing defenses are going to have their hands full.
