Favre's counterpart on the Vikings, Warren Moon, struggled in his first game for Minnesota. He completed 20 of his 37 passing attempts for 166 yards, but he had no touchdowns and he threw three interceptions.
Both quarterbacks believe they have a lot to prove this season. Too often the critics put a big but after Moon's statistics because, in 10 seasons with the Houston Oilers, he never got to the AFC Championship Game. "The only thing I have left to prove is that I can get a team into the Super Bowl," says Moon.
Meanwhile, Favre also wants to take Green Bay to a championship. "After we failed in our Super Bowl bid last year," says Favre, "I'd say, 'I'll be in the league 12 years, so I can do it another year.' But now I look at it and say, 'I want to win now.' "
