Vikings 38, Bills 14

Vikings roll with substitute at QB

MINNEAPOLIS — Brett Favre's consecutive games played streak could be in trouble again but even after his latest injury (see notebook, left) he wasn't ready to declare himself done for good.

The Vikings, with new life under interim coach Leslie Frazier, haven't conceded yet either.

Tarvaris Jackson threw two touchdowns to Sidney Rice in relief after Favre hurt his shoulder on the first series, and Adrian Peterson rushed for three touchdowns on a sprained ankle as the Vikings rolled over the Bills.

"I was brainwashing myself the whole week, putting it in my mind that, 'I'm going to play, I'm going to play, I'm going to play," Peterson said.

The banged-up Vikings outgained the Bills 387-239 and turned Frazier's first home game since replacing the fired Brad Childress into a laugher.

Jackson threw three interceptions but led the Vikings to touchdowns on four consecutive possessions for a 28-7 lead.
