Favre, under intense pressure, found Greg Lewis in the back of the end zone for the touchdown, giving the Vikings a 27-24 lead with two seconds left. Lost in the hubbub over Favre throwing the TD will be the incredible effort by Lewis to make the grab. He did a fantastic job on the play.

The Vikings would hang on and move to 3-0. The frisky 49ers fell to 2-1, but also showed they are a force to be reckoned with in the NFC.

Favre finished the game 24-46 for 301 yards. He threw two TDs and one INT, his first pick of the season.

Next week, Favre and the Vikings face his old team, the Green Bay Packers, on Monday night.

Brace yourself. You won’t hear about anything else next week.
