It took more than 2.5 games, but it finally happened.
During his first game in the place where for the first time in his career it’s OK to throw the ball to guys wearing purple jerseys, Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has chalked up his first interception as a member of the Minnesota team.
But, actually, Favre was throwing the ball to a guy in a purple jersey. The problem is that receiver Bernard Berrian, who has dropped a couple of passes today, couldn’t handle the pass and it bounced into the air and 49ers cornerback Shawntae Spencer was in position to make the pick.
The Niners lead late in the third quarter, 14-13.
