Brett Favre's return to Green Bay? I don't think it'll go in the Vikes favor. Read on to see why in addition to some more matchups for Week 8

Key Matchup Reason
Jeremy Shockey, TE, NOS vs. Thomas DeCoud, FS, ATL DeCoud and Atlanta's secondary limited quality TEs in last three weeks; Saints WRs could get most of the love against poor CBs
Brett Favre, QB, MIN vs. Green Bay Packers secondary Favre due for three-INT game; think his emotions get best of him, and the Pack can play him more aggressively with S Atari Bigby in lineup
Terrell Owens, WR, BUF vs. Jacques Reeves, CB, HOU We finally see something from TO; Lee Evans will be limited by CB Dunta Robinson; inability to run by BUF should see decent game from Owens
Jerricho Cotchery, WR, NYJ vs. Miami Dolphins secondary Cotchery might not be his usual self; fear of re-injuring the hamstring; facing two rookie corners is juicy, but Braylon Edwards should benefit most
Julius Jones, RB, SEA vs. Dallas Cowboys front seven Return of Rob Sims should help interior of the Cowboys' line; Jones was effective earlier in the year when line was healthier
