NFL: Favre, Vikings sail to 44-7 victory over Giants

AP Sports Writer

MINNEAPOLIS — Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings did everything right that went wrong in December, aggressively pursuing the swagger they had before the slump — just in time for the playoffs.

Favre passed for 316 yards and four touchdowns without a turnover in less than three quarters, lifting the Vikings to a 44-7 victory over the barely-there New York Giants on Sunday.
Controlling the game from the very first drive against a Giants team sitting five players who started at least four games this season, the Vikings (12-4) cruised into the locker room to start watching the Philadelphia-Dallas game with an eye on their seed for the NFC playoffs.
They needed an Eagles loss to finish second behind sputtering New Orleans and get a first-round bye, and throughout the second half the crowd broke into “Let’s go Cowboys!” chants.
