Favre, 4 others hit QB triple crown
NEW YORK (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings acquired Brett Favre to get them to their first Super Bowl in more than three decades.
He led them to a 12-4 record and the NFC North title and showed he’s still one of the top quarterbacks in the game. He was one of five QBs to finish the regular season with at least 4,000 yards passing, 25 TDs passing and a QB rating of at least 100.
Favre was joined by the Saints’ Drew Brees, the Chargers’ Philip Rivers, the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers and the Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger. All but Roethlisberger led their teams to the playoffs.
The regular season featured 10 QBs with at least 4,000 yards passing, 12 with at least 25 TDs passing, and five with QB ratings of at least 100. All are records for a single season.
