With less than two minutes left in the 1st half, Minnesota failed to score on 4th and 1. Brett Favre, who earlier in the half threw his 10,000th NFL pass attempt, handed off to Adrian Peterson who was stood up behing the line of scrimmage. That game is tied at 7-7.
FYI, the New England Patriots are wearing 'throwback uniforns' that they last wore in 1993, the year after Brett Favre began playing in the NFL.
Earlier Detroit, who scored and converted a 2-point play to go up 28-25 on Washington, with 3:28 left in the game, managed another 9 points to finish with a 37-25 win.That includes a TD from Ndamukong Suh, who ran a Rex Grossman fumble back 17 yards.
It was Matt Stafford's regular season debut, having been injured by Julius Peppers in the opening day Soldier Field loss to the Bears.
Grossman was brought in late it the 4th for Donovan McNabb, who was benched for only the second time in his career.
