Favre and the Vikings Discover the Winning Formula in Cleveland

Vikings Browns Football
He didn’t have to do all that much, and when it comes to Brett Favre and the Vikings, that’s going to be a winning formula in the 2009 season. Favre’s numbers were nothing short of – light – in Sunday’s 34-20 win in Cleveland. The best play call all day for Minnesota was Peterson right, Peterson left, Peterson up the middle.

By the fourth quarter when Peterson broke a 64-yard run, it was not much of a surprise. As for Favre, he was right on target by not making a mistake that would have put the Vikings in a bad position. Even when the team was down 13-10 at the half, you felt that things for Minnesota was well under control, and they were.

So the old vet and the superstar running back combined for 290 yards, and a defense that was expected to stop the plodding Browns did just that. Call it mission accomplished round one for Favre and the Vikings – and a winning formula that can lead them a long way in 2009.
