It’s Brett Favre night on Football Week in America

Football Week in America continues on Thursday night with a pair of games involving Brett Favre, both directly and indirectly.

Up first, Favre’s second game at Lambeau Field as a member of the Vikings. The 2010 Sunday night contest saw the Packers settle the score after losing to Favre in 2009. Then comes a game during which Favre didn’t play; instead, the Packers honored Favre that night in 2015 in a game against the Bears.

Unfortunately for Favre and the Packers, the Bears won.

The doubleheader gets started at 7:00 p.m. ET on NBCSN, with the second game at 9:30 p.m. ET.

  1. This flows nicely with the Purple paranoia that the NFL favors Green Bay over the irrelevant Vikings.

  2. and if Percy Harvin was about a foot inside Favre would’ve won his 2nd straight … the idea that Favre vs Rodgers (2-2) was an even affair is not accurate. Favre dominated an 11-5 squad in the first 2, with a depleted o-line almost won the 3rd, and when the team completely fell apart the Packers got their one solid win over Favre. #Facts

  3. That 2010 Vikings at Packers game was a classic. Green Bay at Minnesota that year was even better (31-3, solid win). I wonder who won the Super Bowl that season?

  4. This game is a perfect example of Lambeau Zebras in action. I watched this game last night and there were three OBVIOUS BAD calls against the Bears in this game that even Collinsworth and Michaels were cringing at how bad the calls were. The Bears should have won by a larger margin, but the refs were trying to keep the cheaters in the game, probably for Farve and Starr, but this does happen on a regular basis.

    The Green Bay Packers get more help from the refs than any other team in the NFL.

    Lord Favre’s accreditation as a Viking flows nicely through his legendary status.

    It’s a shame the Vikings ended his career prematurely by making him run for his life behind that sieve of an O-line.

  6. Somewhat odd choices of games for “Brett Favre Night” on NBCN.

    I didn’t watch either game last night, but I do remember both and Bart Starr at Lambeau that night is a wonderful memory.👏❤

    The 2010 week 7 game is only memorable because the Packers were coming off 2 OT losses and the win vs. Vikings was the start of four wins in a row. That season obviously ended with the 13 time World Champion Packers hoisting another Lombardi.☝

    Show him choke against the Saints!

    Yes let’s show Saints dirty late hits on Favre that caused fines and their coach to be suspended for a year.

    So, you’re saying, the money I spent paying off referee’s HASN’T been wasted. Good to know.

  9. The Viking trolls are out in force (yet again). The Packers got rid of Favre because he was no longer effective in the playoffs (from 2000 to 2005, just look at his playoff stats).

    Something the Vikings found out vs the Saints. And the Vikings have yet to win a Superbowl.

    Like I said. And they even do it for replays..yawn.

  11. Why didn’t they play the Oakland game after his dad passed, or was that Monday night

  12. Imagine someone putting bounty on Rodgers like Favre, Packers fans would be crying and murdering some body…stabbing Vikings fans like last time.
