The Vikings flirted with QB Brett Favre for two years, and the grizzled veteran showed why the team wanted him so bad in Sunday’s win over the 49ers. Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune looks at Favre’s impact on the Vikings:

Brett Favre looked tired and felt even worse late Sunday afternoon as he stood at a lectern inside the Metrodome. “I’m worn out,” he said. “Believe me, I could fall [over] right now.”

At that point, Favre knew what many in the announced crowd of 63,398 probably felt about a half-hour earlier when he completed a 32-yard last-gasp touchdown pass to wide receiver Greg Lewis on third-and-3 with two seconds remaining, giving the Vikings a 27-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Some more notes from around the Web:

  • After losing to the Packers on Sunday, St. Louis could be the new Detroit. St. Louis now holds the longest losing streak (13) in the league. How will the team react in coming weeks?
