Favre to Rice helps Vikings get past Lions 27-10

MINNEAPOLIS – Brett Favre passed for a season-high 344 yards, 201 to Sidney Rice, and the Minnesota Vikings beat the Detroit Lions 27-10 on Sunday.

The Lions (1-8) joined the Houston Oilers, from Nov. 21, 1982 through Nov. 4, 1984, as the only NFL teams to lose 31 games in a 33-game stretch, according to STATS. They've played tough this season several times, as the Vikings can attest. But after a slew of injuries in this game and more poor pass coverage they dropped
their 12th straight at the Metrodome.

Adrian Peterson lost a fumble, one of three turnovers (one on downs) by the Vikings inside the Detroit 20, but he turned 18 carries into 133 yards and two touchdowns for Minnesota (8-1).
