|Favre Throws 3 INT's, Packers Beat Vikings
|GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Brett Favre threw three second-half interceptions to his former team and the Green Bay Packers held on to beat the Minnesota Vikings 28-24 on Sunday night.
Favre appeared to deliver another signature comeback win with an apparent touchdown strike to Percy Harvin with 48 seconds left -- but the play was ruled incomplete on a replay review. With one more chance on fourth-and-15 at the 20, Favre threw incomplete out of bounds.
Green Bay (4-3) turned a pair of third-quarter Favre interceptions into touchdowns for the Packers that erased the Vikings' halftime lead, including a 32-yard return for a touchdown by Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop.
Aaron Rodgers was 21 of 34 for 295 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
Adrian Peterson rushed for 131 yards for the Vikings (2-4).
