On this day in 2009...


We're 0-3, our defense is terrible, our quarterback situation is worse, and we're playing a home game 4,024 miles away from the Metrodome.

It's not great right now for the Minnesota Vikings, but on this day in 2009, one of the most incredible Minnesota gridiron moments of the last 10 years took place.

The Vikings, down 4 to San Francisco in Week 3 of the 2009 season, had one more chance to pull a victory out against the 49ers and start 3-0. It was all up to Brett Favre.

Minnesota went on to start 6-0, and finish 10-6, with a trip to the NFC Championship Game the result, and a throw across Favre's body ending Minnesota's hopes of a Super Bowl appearance.
