Favre, Vikings, Survive Late Charge By Ravens

By  | 

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - In Favre they trust.

Brett Favre's 58-yard completion to Sidney Rice setup Ryan Longwell's fourth field goal, and Baltimore's Steve Hauschka missed a 44-yard field goal at the buzzer, allowing the Minnesota Vikings to remain undefeated with a 33-31 victory on Sunday.

Favre threw for 278 yards and three touchdowns, but the Vikings (6-0) nearly blew this one when they let the Ravens erase a 17-point deficit with 10 minutes to play.

Joe Flacco threw for 385 yards and two touchdowns for the Ravens (3-3), who scored twice on drives that totaled just 56 seconds to take a 31-30 lead with 3:37 to play.

But Hauschka pushed his field goal wide left, giving the Ravens their third straight loss.
