It was clear in the first two games of the Minnesota Vikings' season that Adrian Peterson was the main part of their offense with Brett Favre having a supporting role that limited his mistakes and allowed for him to not over-use his arm.

In Favre's first two games he had a combined 265 yards, and in his third game he had a total of 301 yards. Adrian Peterson carried the team in the first two games, which was easy to do when you face Cleveland and Detroit to open the season. In the third game, it was obvious that Favre won the game for Minnesota on his spectacular play at the end of the game.

One of the three wins is without a doubt because of Favre, with the other two coming as fairly easy wins in which he did his part and the Vikings came away with an easy win. We'll see the rest of the season as to how much the Vikings will actually need Favre to win.
