Brett Favre has completed 67 passes to Sidney Rice so far in 2009, 5 of which have resulted in TDs. Their success together is largely the function of careful game planning throughout the week in preparation for the opponent.
But sometimes in the heat of battle, strategy is tossed out the window and players have to simply play the game. In those moments, an ability to improvise is more important than the ability to scheme and strategize.
One of those improvisation moments came to fruition for Favre and Rice last week against the Cincinnati Bengals. And the QB-WR combo passed the test, hooking up for a 9-yard TD on a crucial 3rd and 8 from the 9-yardline.
NFL Films breaks the play down, with film study provided by Greg Cosell and soundbites from both Favre and Rice. Check out the video by clicking here.
The play gave the Vikings their first TD of the game and also a 10-0 lead that eventually yielded a 30-10 victory over the Bengals.
