The storyline
Vikings veteran quarterback Brett Favre comes in on 10 days rest to try to improve on the shaky opening-night outing he had against the Saints.

Why you should watch
Dolphins QB Chad Henne has not looked right yet, including during the preseason, but Brandon Marshall should be a handful downfield for Minnesota. Expect to see a lot of Adrian Peterson.
