Brett Favre took a wicked shot under the chin from Patriots’ defensive tackle Myron Prior, so the Vikings have turned to Tarvaris Jackson, and the Vikings now find themselves within a field goal of New England.
Jackson’s first play this season was a touchdown pass to fullback Naufahu Tahi from two yards out. Then, on the next play, Jackson floated one to Percy Harvin for the two-point conversion. Harvin made a great catch and got both feet in bounds for the score.
With 7:26 left in the football game, the Vikings trail the New England Patriots 21-18.
