Favre: This is what I came back for

Minnesota’s Benny Sapp tackles Dallas’ Marion Barber during the first half. Barber ran eight times for 14 yards.

MINNEAPOLIS – “This is what I came back for.”

For the adrenaline rush. For the in-your-face touchdown. For another shot at the Super Bowl.

Brett Favre wanted all of it, and now he’s got it.

Four – count ’em, four – touchdown passes from Minnesota’s 40-year-old quarterback sent the Vikings to the NFC championship game with a determined 34-3 rout of the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

“Probably the most fatigued I got today was celebrating,” Favre said, smiling. More here.

NFL Scoreboard:

Vikings 34 Cowboys 3

Jets 17 Chargers 14
