Near dead Vikings rally late for an OT win against the Cardinals
Brett Favre slumped in his locker room chair shortly after the Minnesota Vikings dramatic overtime victory (27-24) over the Arizona Cardinals at the Metrodome on Sunday. Head in his hand, bloodshot eyes and the picture of exhaustion, Favre looked like a beaten man--yet he had a small smile on his face. He had just thrown for 446 yards (a career high), leading his team back from 14 points down with 4:39 left in the game, and he was totally spent. He gave everything he had, along with his teammates, to save the Vikings' season and, potentially, the head coach's job.
