Sunday produced a Vikings rally for the ages

After 50 years of Vikings football and 20 years of Favre football in the NFL, there are a couple of firsts still being produced.

The Vikings' resident king of the dramatic, Brett Favre, was on top of his cliff-hanging performances Sunday at the Metrodome, producing personal and franchise firsts.

Favre threw for a career-high 446 yards and it was his first 400-yard game since Dec. 5, 1993 – an NFL-record span of 16 years, 337 days.

But the team's 27-24 overtime victory was also a franchise first. They overcame a 24-10 deficit in the final four minutes of regulation, and Ryan Longwell's game-winning 35-yard field goal gave them the win.

It was the first time in team history that the Vikings won a game after trailing by 14 or more points with less than four minutes to play, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. It was the first time that happened in the NFL since the Colts pulled out a 38-35 overtime win at Tampa in 2003, according to Elias.
