Jackson thought he was going to start

FOXBORO -- Speaking after the Patriots' 28-18 win over the Vikings Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium, Minnesota backup quarterback Tavaris Jackson admitted that he had the feeling he was going to get the start with Brett Favre still nursing a left ankle injury.

 

"I had my feeling, but I'm not always right. I think I am," said Jackson, who later confirmed his "feeling" was that he would be starting. "It was a situation where it could go either way and the guy that he is, there aren't too many guys coming out of  that boot and playing on Sunday with the same injury that Brett has."

 

Jackson -- who did get a chance to play when Favre was driven from the game with a 10-stitch laceration on his chin in the fourth quarter -- said he didn't find out Favre was going to start until Sunday. Favre finished his outing going 22-of-32 for 259 yards, throwing one interception. Jackson came on to...

Moss: 'I miss the hell out of them'

FOXBORO - Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss spoke to the media following the 28-18 Patriots win at Gillette Stadium on Sunday. Moss, who refused to answer any questions from reporters, talked about his feelings for his former organization.

 

"It was hard for me to come here and play," said Moss, who finished with just one catch for eight yards. "It was an up-and-down roller coaster for me all week. Then to be able to come and see these guys, running plays, I know what they're doing, success they had on the field with the running game. I kind of know what type of feeling is in their locker room and I want to be able to tell those guys that I miss the hell out of them, every last helmet in that locker room ... Coach Belichick gave me an opportunity to part of something special and I really take that to heart and I salute Coach Belichick and the Patriots for the success they had before me, during me and after me. I'm actually...

Scary TKO: Pats knock out Favre, Vikes

FOXBORO -- BenJarvus Green-Ellis rushed 17 times for 112 yards and two touchdowns and the Patriots defense knocked out Brett Favre late in the fourth quarter as the Patriots beat the Vikings, 28-18, Sunday at Gillette Stadium.

 

Tom Brady completed 16-of 27 passes for 240 yards and a brilliant 65-yard scrambling touchdown pass to Brandon Tate as the Patriots won their fifth straight game and claimed sole of possession of first place in the AFC East with a 6-1 record. That's a game better than the 5-2 Jets, who were shut out at home, 9-0, by Green Bay on Sunday. 

 

Randy Moss caught just one pass for eight yards in his return to New England. Favre was knocked out of the game when Myron Pryor drilled him under the chin. Favre was helped to the sideline and then moments later taken off the field on a cart after having his face and head examined. He did not return to the game.

Favre driven from game in fourth

Vikings quarterback Brett Favre was driven from his team's game with the Patriots Sunday with 7:31 left in the contest when New England defensive lineman Myron Pryor hit him under the chin on a 3rd-and-goal from 4-yard-line.

 

Favre was helped off the field by the Vikings' medical staff, and promptly replaced by Tavaris Jackson. After Minnesota was granted an automatic first-down on the Favre pass thanks to illegal contact on Pats' cornerback Jonathan Wilhite. The Vikes' backup quarterback would toss a one-yard TD pass to Naufahu Tahi, along with a two-point conversion toss to Percy Harvin, to cut the Patriots' lead to 21-18.

 

The official statement regarding Favre, who was brought to the locker room on a cart with the Gillette Stadium crowd supplying a smattering of boos, was that the quarterback had suffered a "laceration." Favre left the game having gone 22-for-32, passing for 259 yards and one interception....

Shaq misses practice, is day to day

Shaquille O'Neal didn't practice Sunday and it is uncertain whether he'll be ready to play Tuesday when the Celtics play at Detroit. O'Neal banged his fibula against the leg of Amar'e Stoudemire in Friday's game against the Knicks. He limped back to the locker room and didn't return. "I always have a freak injury," he said Sunday. "We’ll be all right." O'Neal said that he hopes to practice Monday and that he is taking it day by day.

 

The Celtics did get good news when Jermaine O'Neal returned to practice after missing Friday's game with swelling in his knee. "It’s been rough to be honest," he said. "I’m not going to lie. I’m disappointed." 

 

If Shaq can't play Tuesday, Jermaine O'Neal would probably move into the starting lineup, Doc Rivers said. If they both can't play, Semih Erden would be next in line. Rivers would prefer to continue bringing Glen...
