Brett Favre overcame Minnesota's special teams behaving like a sieve in order to get the Vikings to OT, but it just wasn't enough in the end. A fumble by Adrian Peterson ultimately gave the Bears the victory and the Saints home-field advantage.
Fans from teams with playoff hopes across the country watched and reacted as the Vikings fell to 11-4 after a 10-1 start.

As a Saints fan, I would like to personally thank AP for the homefield advantage throughout.....hopefully now the Saints can get their act together and make use of it and not get knocked out.” -- Hot_pick2

Thank you for beating the Vikings. Your efforts wouldn't be wasted.
