Favre throws first touchdown for Vikings as Minnesota rolls Cleveland 34-20
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Brett Favre looked pleasing in purple. Adrian Peterson always does.
The ageless quarterback threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to rookie Percy Harvin in his debut with the Minnesota Vikings, and Peterson scored three touchdowns in a 34-20 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Making his 270th consecutive start after a will-he-or-won't-he flirtation that dominated NFL headlines this summer, the 39-year-old Favre showed he can still fire the football with authority -- and hasn't lost his boyish love for the game.
After hooking up with Harvin, Favre sprinted into the end zone and tackled the young wide receiver who was just 4 years old when his QB broke into the league with Green Bay.
Peterson scored on a pair of 1-yard plunges and capped his day with an electrifying 64-yarder in the fourth quarter to make it 34-13.
