Favre started Monday Night Game against Bears but got knocked out in second quarter

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (WLOX) -Before the Chicago-Minnesota NFL Monday Night Football game Vikings quarterback Brett Favre surprised everyone by starting the game on a snowy night on the University of Minnesota campus stadium. 

The game had to be played there because the Metrodome wasn't ready after the roof collapsed last weekend.

Favre started the game but didn't last.  He left the game with a head injury and walked slowly off the field early in the second quarter.

The Vikings said Favre had a head injury and that his return was doubtful.

The 41-year-old quarterback played with a sprained right shoulder.   Bears defensive end Corey Wooton tackled Favre and slammed the veteran quarterback into the cold turf.

His helmet bounced on the frozen turf, remained motionless for a few seconds before he slowly got up and walked off the field.  This was probably his last game.  However, knowing the history of Favre, you can never count him out. He would watch the remainder of the game from the sidelines.

Favre completed 5 of 7 passes for 63 yards, a touchdown and one interception.

The Bears prevailed 40-14 and captured the NFC North Division title.
