Brett Favre’s play marred by New Orleans Saints’ late interception

The Minnesota Vikings’ locker room looked like a funeral home after Sunday’s 31-28 overtime loss to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC championship game, and quarterback Brett Favre was the chief mourner. Many of his teammates walked to his locker, hugged him, whispered in his ear and consoled him as he consoled them.
Favre’s interception with 19 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter that ended a possible game-winning scoring drive garnered most of the attention.

“I prefer to look at the positive, watching 4 compete in purple and gold was great,” Vikings Coach Brad Childress said.
