After a dream season with the Vikings last year, this one has been a nightmare with a multitude of injuries and a sexting scandal for Brett Favre. Well, the nightmare just got worse as Brett Favre’s streak of 297 consecutive games will come to an end when the Vikings kick off.

He is listed as inactive. Tarvaris Jackson will get the start tonight (and possibly for the remainder of the season). Percy Harvin is also inactive so make sure you adjust your lineups accordingly.

It was most certainly one helluva run. Thanks for the memories Brett.

Obviously the combo of Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams put on a show tonight, but there were a couple of other surprising performances.

No, I’m not talking about Ted Ginn, Jr. actually holding onto the football.  I’m not talking about the gutsy use of Pat White late in the game.  I’m talking about Chad Henne and Braylon Edwards.

Chad Henne had an outstanding game completing 20 of 26 passes (76.9%) for 241 yards and 2 TDs.  He was decisive.  He showed good poise, a strong arm, and good touch.  If he is available in 2 QB leagues, be sure to put in a claim for him.  He looked that good.

The Jets got an encouraging sign in the debut of Braylon Edwards.  He caught 4 passes for 64 yards and a TD.  He nearly had a second score, getting tackled on the 1.  He also drew a pass interference on a deep ball that set up Thomas Jones’ second TD.  If you have Edwards on your fantasy roster, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that he’s on a team with a pulse.
