Miami’s ‘D’ leads Dolphins to 14-10 win over Vikes

MINNEAPOLIS — Brett Favre was intercepted three times and the Miami Dolphins stopped Adrian Peterson on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line to preserve a 14-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Koa Misi also recovered Favre’s fumble in the end zone for one of Miami’s two touchdowns and Brian Hartline scored the other on a 5-yard pass from Chad Henne to keep the Dolphins (2-0) undefeated.

The 40-year-old Favre had his worst day as a Viking, going 19 of 28 for 197 yards with four turnovers. He threw two interceptions at home all of last season, but topped that total in the home opener.

Peterson rushed for 145 yards and a touchdown for the Vikings (0-2), who forced two fumbles of their own in a mistake-filled game.

The Vikings had a final possession with 1:42 to go, but Favre’s pass to Visanthe Shiancoe on fourth down fell incomplete.
