Record-seekers vs. Giants

While the Vikings struggled against the Giants, they did have a few players making their mark in the record book, especially the specialists.

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).
