This week, the answer is no. Next week? Who knows.

Vikings QB Brett Favre told Steve Mariucci of the NFL Network in an interview that was aired during Thursday night's broadcast of the Ravens-Falcons game that he would not be returning to play in 2011.

The 41-year-old Favre had stated in a press conference in August that 2010, his 20th NFL season, would be his last. However, coming off a career-best 446-yard passing performance in leading the Vikings to a come-from-behind victory over the Cardinals in Week Nine, Favre was asked the question again this week.

And, he again said, "no" when asked by Mariucci if he will play in 2011.

Favre also was less than enthusiastic about the Vikings' chances to make the Super Bowl, or even the playoffs, this season, telling Mariucci that Minnesota needs to take little steps first.

And when asked if this was the most difficult season of his career, he replied, "yes and no."
