Brett Favre said he'll be watching Sunday. And rooting.

"I want to see the Vikes win," the Hall of Famer said via email Friday. "It's their time."

Then, to prove that you can indeed teach an old gunslinger new tricks, Favre passed along two thumbs-up emojis to Vikings fans getting set to watch their squad play the Saints in a NFC divisional playoff game at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Jan. 24, 2010, was the last time the Vikings and Saints met in the playoffs. You might recall that NFC title game and how the 31-28 overtime loss sucker-punched one of the most magical seasons in franchise history.



It was the 24th and final postseason game of Favre's 20-year career. Overall, it was the 309th of his 322 NFL starts.

That's quite a difference from Sunday, when Case Keenum will be making his postseason debut in his 40th overall start.

Never fear, says the fearless Favre.

"Case has done an outstanding job leading his team," Favre said. "His play certainly speaks for itself. It sounds to me like he carries lots of mental and physical toughness on and off the field, and people notice."

Playing all but six quarters of a 13-win season, Keenum was aggressive and smart, mostly at the same time. Like Favre during the 2009 regular season, he threw only seven interceptions. Favre had 33 touchdowns in 531 passes, while Keenum has 22 touchdowns in 481 throws.
