Now that's a matchup the Vikes will take
By Dan Graziano
MINNEAPOLIS -- On Brett Favre's 47-yard touchdown pass to Sidney Rice, the Cowboys had safety Gerald Sensabaugh in one-on-one coverage. The Vikings will take that matchup all day long. And this is what the Cowboys feared the most: falling behind and allowing this crowd to take over.
On the touchdown pass, it looked like Terence Newman passed off Rice to Sensabaugh after about 20 yards. Sensabaugh actually had good coverage on Rice, but he never looked back and found the ball. Even when Rice was dancing into the end zone, Sensabaugh still looked like he was clueless.
I'll try to find out after the game if that was all Sensabaugh's fault.
