Brett Favre addressed his teammates before the game amid all the distractions.
Hours later, the record-breaking quarterback put all that aside and nearly led the Minnesota Vikings to another of his classic comebacks. The New York Jets would have none of it.
With Favre trying to rally his team, Jets cornerback Dwight Lowery returned an interception 26 yards for a touchdown with 1:30 left as the Jets beat the Vikings 29-20 on “Monday Night Football.”
“Disappointing, I suppose,” Favre said. “I was expecting we were going to win this football game. It was a great football game and I wish we would have won it.”
Nick Folk kicked five field goals for the Jets (4-1), two after fumbles by Favre.
