Stats from the Jets Vikings Game

The ESPN Stats and Info Blog has posted some interesting stats about the Jets 29-20 win over the Vikings.

• The Jets haven’t allowed a first-quarter point in any game this season. That’s the longest streak they have ever had to start a season. The previous record of four games was held by the 1978 team, coached by Walt Michaels

• New York has also not committed a turnover in its last four games, tying the NFL record last accomplished by the Panthers in the final four games of last season. (The Jets played four consecutive games without a turnover once previously in their history, early in the 2001 season.)

• Down 12-0 with less than three minutes left in the third quarter, Favre connected with the newly acquired Randy Moss on a 37-yard touchdown pass. It was Favre’s 500th career touchdown pass, which came one day after his 41st birthday. It was Moss’ first touchdown with the Vikings since the 2004 season.

• Favre finished with 264 passing yards, giving him 70,190 passing yards for his career. However, he was also responsible for three fumbles (two lost) and an interception late in the game that was returned for a touchdown as the Vikings were going for the potential game-winning score. The fumbles moved him ahead of Warren Moon on the all-time list with 163.
