In a game where Brett Farve was knocked out on the third play, the Vikings rallied behind backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson to beat the Buffalo Bills 38-14.

Jackson had a rough start throwing an interception to Buffalo cornerback Drayton Florence who returned it 40 yards for a touchdown. Instead of folding and letting the game get away from them, the Vikings rattled off 31 points before halftime on two Adrian Peterson touchdown runs, two Sydney Rice touchdown receptions and a 38-yard field goal by Ryan Longwell.

Peterson scored another touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 43 yard dash and Buffalo's David Nelson caught a Ryan Fitzpatrick touchdown pass in the closing minutes.

Favre suffered a sprained sternoclavicular joint in his right shoulder, and did not return. His availabilty is in question for next weeks matchup against the New York Giants. He will undergo a MRI on Monday.

The Vikings (5-7) are 2-0 under Frazier and will play the Giants at Mall of America field on Sunday, Dec. 12 at noon.
