Record-seekers vs. Giants
GAME NOTES vs. N.Y. GIANTS
Greg Camarillo's 90 yards on punt returns ranks third in a Monday Night game for the Vikings. Leo Lewis holds the record with 98 yards on Dec. 19, 1988, and Nate Burleson is second with 96 yards on Nov. 8, 2004.
Camarillo set a record for punt returns (five) and punt-return yards (90) in the New York Giants series.
Brett Favre's streak of 297 consecutive starts ended and so did his 299 consecutive games played in the regular season. Former punter Jeff Feagles holds the record for consecutive games played with 352, with Favre second and Jim Marshall third (282).
Lorenzo Booker's 123 kickoff-return yards rank fifth-most in a Viking's first game. Onterrio Smith (136 in 2003), Eddie Payton (128 in 1980), Buster Rhymes (126 in 1985) and Bethel Johnson (124 in 2006) are all ahead of Booker.
Chris Kluwe set a team record for most punts inside the 20 in a career. He now has 155, one more than Greg Coleman, who punted from 1978-87.
Kluwe set a record for most punts (10) and his 59-yard punt was second-longest in the Giants series.
Jared Allen moved into third place for most QB sacks in an NFL player's first seven seasons. Reggie White holds the record with 110 from 1985-91 and Derrick Thomas is second with 85 from 1989-95. Allen has 81.5 from 2004-2010.
