Take a quick stroll down memory lane with PFW for a recap of the Vikings’ Week Four contests each of the last five seasons:

2009: In QB Brett Favre’s first game against his former team, the Vikings held off a late Packers rally to win 30-23. Favre came up big in the Monday-night contest, throwing three touchdown passes and completing 24-of-31 passes for 271 yards. RB Adrian Peterson was held to 55 rushing yards, but WRs Bernard Berrian and Sidney Rice combined for 145 receiving yards and each grabbed a touchdown pass. The win put Minnesota at 4-0 and gave Favre wins over all 32 NFL teams.

2008: The Vikings were unable to withstand an explosive Titans offense and fell 30-17 to Tennessee. QB Gus Frerotte threw 43 passes but completed only 25 and was sacked five times. Peterson rushed for 80 yards on 18 carries and scored twice.

2007: Favre, as a member of the Packers, torched the Vikings for 344 yards as Green Bay defeated Minnesota 23-16. The Vikings’ lone touchdown came on a fourth-quarter pass from QB Kelly Holcomb to WR Sidney Rice. PK Ryan Longwell hit three field goals in the loss.

2006: QB Brad Johnson threw two interceptions in the Vikings’ 17-12 loss to the Bills. Following two Longwell field goals, Minnesota finally scored its first touchdown of the game with 3:07 remaining on a 29-yard toss from Johnson to WR Marcus Robinson. The Vikings compiled only 63 rushing yards, with a team-high 23 coming from RB Chester Taylor.

2005: The Vikings were held scoreless over the first three quarters, eventually falling 30-10 to the Falcons. QB Daunte Culpepper hit WR Troy Williamson in the endzone to score Minnesota’s only touchdown. RB Mewelde Moore was the team’s top rusher (57 yards) and receiver (63).
