They refs called roughing the passer on an earlier play which they had no business calling whatsoever. I think the refs new that, and allowed that extra hit on Favre as a make up call for the Saints.
I'm not sure if this was the reason they let that one go, but you're right about this first call. It was a blatantly horrible roughing the passer on Favre...he handed the ball off to Rice and got popped after that. The Vikes ended up scoring a TD on the drive so whatever, fair is fair.
How was that a bad call? They layed out the QB after he handed the ball off and was out the play. That was an obvious call.
That being said there was a questionable roughing the passing call just a couple of plays before the pick.
On the play you're talking about, Favre was trying to block.
Remember his low hit in the preseason? This time he went high, and he got jocked.
