Percy Harvin's 95-yard kickoff return for a
touchdown gave Minnesota a spark to start the second half, and the
Vikings overcame another uneven game by Brett Favre in a 24-21
victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Playing with a bad elbow and the specter of a scandal hovering
over him, Favre - who is to meet with NFL security Tuesday about
the alleged racy messages he sent to a former New York Jets
employee - took a bunch of big hits and finished 14 for 19 for 118
yards, one TD and one turnover.
Randy Moss's first home game since joining the Vikings in a
trade turned into an afterthought, but the defense and special
teams did plenty to make up for Favre's unpolished play.
The Vikings (2-3) won this matchup of preseason NFC favorites,
though even in defeat the Cowboys (1-4) are not out of contention
in the mediocre conference.
