Football: Favre knocked out, Bears beat Vikes to win North

-A A +A
By Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Only Brett Favre could get hurt in a game he was supposedly too beat up to play in.

After Minnesota's battered quarterback walked off the snow-coated field with what he later called a concussion, Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears took back the division title Favre is so used to winning.

Cutler's three touchdown passes and record-setting Devin Hester's dashing kick returns helped the Bears fly past the Vikings 40-14 on a frosty, hard-hitting Monday night to clinch the NFC North.

"Hopefully this is just a stepping stone," Cutler said.

With the Metrodome unusable because of a roof collapse, the game got moved to the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium. Snowballs flew from the seats — sometimes hitting players — and fans recalled the Vikings' roots as an outdoor team.

After a sudden improvement in his sprained throwing shoulder, Favre was upgraded on the injury report less than eight hours before the game from "out" to "questionable." He passed his pregame test and came out as the starter, capping the opening drive with a touchdown pass to Percy Harvin.
