Tarvaris Jackson is confident he can be successful if Brett Favre can't start and he gets the call. Jackson is 10-9 in 19 career regular-season starts.

"It's the best I've ever felt," Jackson said. "Hopefully, it translates to the field but it's the best I've ever felt since I've been in the league."

Asked why he feels that way considering he's been a backup the past two seasons, Jackson said it's his confidence.

"I think that's the main point, the confidence," he said. "I honestly can say I knew what I was doing, but I wasn't very confident just by all the external factors and listening to too much stuff instead of just going and playing football. Now I'm playing football. I haven't played in a game, just practice. But I feel great."
