Vikings coach denies running up score in Cowboys playoff game

 Coach Brad Childress says the Minnesota Vikings were not trying to run up the score late in last season

Minnesota Vikings' Brett Favre (4) drops back to pass with Dallas Cowboys' L.P. LaDouceur applying pressure during the first half Sunday of their NFC Divisional playoff game in Minneapolis.

Coach Brad Childress says the Minnesota Vikings were not trying to run up the score late in last season's 34-3 playoff victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
Brett Favre threw a touchdown pass to Visanthe Shiancoe with
less than 2 minutes to play in the game for the final margin. The
play prompted Dallas linebacker Keith Brooking to confront
Childress on the sideline and call it "disgusting and classless."
Childress said Thursday the team was just trying to get a first
down to keep the clock moving, and ultimately scored instead. He
says the Cowboys were still blitzing aggressively late in the game,
so the Vikings had no choice but to throw the ball.
Childress also said, "It would probably be a good idea to cover
the guy."
