Packer fans booed Brett Favre lustily when he trotted onto the field for his first game at Lambeau as a member of the enemy.
By halftime, Favre had shut up the thousands of bitter cheeseheads by leading the Vikings to a 17-3 lead. With a lot of help from Adrian Peterson, Percy Harvin (whose long kick return set up the first TD) and a defense that had Packer QB Aaron Rodgers running for his life.
The Packers were not helped on the first Viking TD drive when, after Minnesota appeared to have been held to a field goal attempt, Johnny Jolly headbutted Chester Taylor, leading to a personal foul and more downs for the Vikes. They would score a touchdown, rather than settle for the 3.
It could’ve been even more than 17-3. The Vikes got the ball back at 14-3 with a little more than two minutes left and drove it down to scoring range, but Brad Childress, per his usual habit, took the foot off the gas and settled for the field goal. This after Chilly, on the previous possession, gave away three points by going for it on 4th down and seeing Adrian Peterson get stuffed.
Viking fans know well the oddball tendencies of Mr. Chilly.
