MINNEAPOLIS -- Maybe Brett Favre has some emotions about this game after all.

Favre just threw his second touchdown pass of the night, a 14-yard strike to receiver Sidney Rice on 3rd-down-11. Included in Favre’s post-touchdown celebration was a chest bump with tailback Chester Taylor that was so powerful that it knocked Taylor flat on his back.

Favre, who turns 40 later this month, helped Taylor off the ground. The Vikings lead 14-7 with 4 minutes, 59 seconds left in the half. If you're scoring at home, Favre has completed 11 of his first 13 passes.
