Favre, Rice force overtime
By Kevin Seifert
CHICAGO -- Sidney Rice has been Brett Favre’s favorite receiver this season, and so it’s no surprise Favre looked his way on fourth down from the Bears’ 6-yard line with 16 seconds left to play.
Rice’s leaping touchdown over cornerback Corey Graham allowed the Vikings to send the game into overtime. (It would have been the game-winner had Israel Idonije not blocked an extra point in the third quarter.)
Brett Favre has thrown for 269 yards in the second half to lead the Vikings back from a 16-0 halftime deficit. This time, I really mean I’ll be back with you when it’s over.
