Sports Beat

Favre wins.
Brett Favre still has quite the winning touch.

Greg Lewis leaped for a 32-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone to lift Minnesota to a 27-24 victory over the stunned San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, keeping the Vikings unbeaten.

An official review upheld Lewis's unbelievable catch with 2 seconds left, sending the sellout crowd into a frenzy. Some of the fans had already left after two unsuccessful possessions prior to that against a stingy 49ers defense. More of them booed a few times during the second half as the offense struggled to move the ball, and many Favre's passes were badly off target.

But they were sure on at the end, during an 80-yard drive that ate up 87 of the 89 seconds that remained when the Vikings (3-0) got the ball back. Favre completed six passes during the drive....

Packers win.
The Green Bay Packers ran hot and cold on offense for the third consecutive game and their defense more or less held firm, leading to a 36-17 victory over the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome on Sunday afternoon.
Badgers win.
"The thing I like about Scotty is he is just constantly moving forward," Badgers coach Bret Bielema said. "He's so sound in what's going on around him and he's got a good understanding of the bigger picture. They were taking away certain things and we thought we could take advantage of the air and he went out there and kept executing, made great decisions. There were a couple series where he got a little bit off of where he was going, but those are things that we can work (on)."
My emphasis.

I'm sure it just slipped your old feeble mind, and that's forgivable, but Da Bears won, and so did the Lions, tightening up the Central a bit.
Barb and I are going to Lambeau for the Nov. 15th game against Dallas! I will have no trouble cheering for the Pack over the "boys"

Peace to you.
