GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Two old quarterbacks with golden resumes and ageless arms took the field Sunday night. Kurt Warner was marvelous, Brett Favre was miserable.
Warner, back after missing a game with a concussion, threw for 285 yards and three touchdowns and Arizona's defense stifled Favre and the Minnesota Vikings in a stunningly one-sided 30-17 victory for the Cardinals.
Favre set an NFL record for consecutive appearances, but game No. 283 in a row was no night to remember for him or the rest of the Vikings (10-2). The 40-year-old quarterback, with just three interceptions in the first the first 11 games, was pick off twice and sacked three times.
Even more startling, Arizona (8-4) held Adrian Peterson to a season-low 19 yards in 13 carries and outrushed Minnesota 113-62.
