(Newser) – Facing the team he spent most of his career with, Brett Favre turned back the clock tonight, throwing for three touchdowns as his host Minnesota Vikings held off Green Bay, 30-23. The 39-year-old quarterback spent 16 seasons with the Packers, which had been the only NFL team he'd never defeated. Favre completed 24 of 31 pass attempts—without any of the interceptions that marked his last season in Green Bay.
