Vikings Jets, Taken in a vacuum, the bulk of (October 11) Monday night NFL game between the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings visit was rather dull. For most games, the Jets quietly dominated the line of scrimmage and played great defense while their offense was struggling to get into a groove (they have mostly settled for field goals). But fortunately, the interior drama unfolds in the four quarters of the game is one of the most entertaining games and exciting on the sporting landscape this year. Ultimately, the Jets led the Vikings 29-20, but there is more game than the score.
There were many story lines coming into the game as Vikings receiver Randy Moss made his return to the team after being traded by the Patriots in New England, while the receiver Santonio Holmes returned from Jets a drug-related suspension. The Jets also welcome back corner Darelle Revis, one of the best defensive players in the NFL. And of course there was a lot of attention to Brett Favre and Vikings quart recent allegations of his inappropriate behavior (ESPN reported that Favre has apologized to his teammates in tears at a meeting before the match).
The game itself started late because of bad weather and lightning forced the team to clear the stage twice before the kickoff. When the game finally made its debut, each defense has managed to close the other side relatively efficiently, preventing key offensive players to find a groove. On the way, Favre became the first player to throw over 500 touchdowns and pass for over 70,000 yards (he also passed Warren Moon for the most part escaped in NFL history). At the end of the third quarter, Favre got hot and started throwing touchdown passes, and although the Jets finally found the end zone, Favre had narrowed the gap to 22-20 with just minutes on the clock in the fourth quarter. After some care clock management issue Jets quart Mark Sanchez, the Vikings got the ball with just under two minutes to play in the game (and if you thought ESPNanlyst Ron Jaworski and Jon Gruden, the game was all but wrapped up as long as Favre had the ball). The old gunslinger could not get there, however, and on a third attempt, he threw a lazy pass that was intercepted and returned for the touchdown tiebreak.
It was a great victory for the Jets, who are now in sole possession of first place in the AFC East. In honor of their great victory, enjoy R. Kelly “Sign of victory.”
