Brent Howard Novoselsky (born January 8, 1966), is a former professional American football tight end in the National Football League.

Novoselsky, who is Jewish, was born in Skokie, Illinois.[citation needed]

Novoselsky's career highlight[according to whom?] NFL catch was during a Monday Night Football game with the Minnesota Vikings against the Cincinnati Bengals on Christmas night in 1989. His 1-yard TD grab from Wade Wilson in the fourth quarter helped put the Vikings up 29-21, the game's final score, which gave the Vikings the division title over Green Bay, with whom they shared a 10-6 record.[citation needed] Otherwise, Minnesota would have missed the playoffs with a loss.
