Vikings Fall To Lions In Season Finale, 20-13

(Sports Network) – Shaun Hill threw for 258 yards and a score as the Detroit Lions took a 20-13 win over the Minnesota Vikings in what may have been the last game of Brett Favre’s career.

However, Favre went out with a whimper instead of a bang as the legendary quarterback sat out the season finale.

Favre suffered a concussion two weeks ago against Chicago and missed last Tuesday’s snow-delayed game against Philadelphia. While he reportedly passed a concussion test this weekend, the Vikings still listed him as inactive for the final game of the season.

The 41-year-old future Hall of Famer has indicated that this season will be his last, although he’s already come back from a pair of brief retirements.

Hill went 28-for-39 with an interception while Nate Burleson finished the game with six catches for 83 yards and a score for the Lions (6-10), who ended the season with their first four-game winning streak since the 1999 season.

Joe Webb made his second straight start in place of Favre and went 19-for-31 with 133 yards and an interception for the Vikings (6-10), who dropped three of their final four games of the season.

The two teams finished tied for the bottom spot in the NFC North.

In other Minnesota news, the club is expected to name interim head coach Leslie Frazier as the permanent head coach either Monday or Tuesday, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

He took over the coaching duties on November 22 after Brad Childress was fired and guided the team to a 3-3 mark to close out the season.
