Okay, okay. Probably a cheesy title for this blog entry but don’t let it detract from the actual substance of the blog entry.
Vikings QB Brett Favre will start and play in his 22nd NFL playoff game, by far more than any other current Vikings player. In those 22 playoff games, Favre has accumulated a bunch of impressive statistics and he’s closing in on some of former 49ers QB Joe Montana’s career playoff records.
It would take a super-human effort from Favre to pass Montana in career playoff passing yards and TDs on Sunday, but he should top Montana’s mark for career playoff attempts and completions against Dallas and he also will look to increase his NFL playoff record for consecutive playoff games with a TD pass to 19.
If Favre can lead the Vikings to victory on Sunday, he’ll have an even better shot to top Montana in yards and TD passes.
While those career playoff records are certainly nothing to scoff at, there’s another playoff statistic Favre would certainly like to add to even more than the yards, TDs, completions and attempts records – playoff wins.
Below we’ve included the career playoff records Favre is approaching and where Montana ranks ahead of him:
Favre: 5,311 (461 behind)
Favre: 39 (6 behind)
Favre: 438 (22 behind)
Favre: 721 (13 behind)
