Saints quarterback Drew Brees expects Brett Favre to return to the Vikings and play this coming season. "I don't think there's any doubt that Brett Favre is coming back, and he's going to be as good as he's ever been," Brees said Monday in an interview with FanHouse. "We're going to need our best game to beat him, I know that. They're a good team. A very good team." The Saints will play host to the Vikings in the NFL regular-season opener on Sept. 9.
