Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- After veteran Brett Favre left the game with a shoulder injury after just three plays, the Minnesota Vikings turned to a familiar face, Tarvaris Jackson.

T-Jack responded. He threw two touchdown passes, both to Sidney Rice, and Adrian Peterson rushed for three touchdowns as the Vikings beat the Buffalo Bills 38-14.

Jackson also threw three interceptions in the game, and interim head coach Leslie Frazier said after the game that Favre would start next week's game if healthy.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, meanwhile, were at home against San Francisco, looking to rebound after last week's loss to Atlanta.

Rodgers threw for 298 yards and three touchdowns, two of those to Greg Jennings. He also did not throw an interception in the game.

With the win, the Packers move to (8-4) this season, still one game back of the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears.
