The Vikings have experienced all kinds of setbacks, dropoffs and letdowns since losing the NFC championship game in overtime in January, and Favre’s sprained shoulder was the latest addition to the list.



For once, the Vikings — who have found a groove under interim head coach Leslie Frazier — were good enough to overcome that.



Tarvaris Jackson threw two touchdown passes to Sidney Rice in relief after Favre was hurt on the first series, Adrian Peterson ran for three touchdowns on a sprained ankle and the Vikings rolled over the Buffalo Bills 38-14 on Sunday.



“We looked like what most people expected going into this season,” said Frazier, 2-0 since replacing the fired Brad Childress.



The Vikings took a 38-7 lead early in the fourth quarter on Peterson’s 43-yard run, right after Jared Allen smacked the ball out of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick’s arm to force the fourth of five Bills turnovers. It was that kind of afternoon for Frazier and the Vikings (5-7), who have struggled to recapture last year’s form on both sides of the ball.



“There’s not many games left for me either way,” Favre said. “I would like to see it through. I would like to play. It’s what I came in here for.”



Favre was diagnosed with a sprained sternoclavicular joint in his throwing shoulder. The SC joint is located where the collarbone meets the breastbone. An X-ray showed no broken bones, and he is expected to have an MRI on Monday. If Favre can play, though, Frazier left no doubt about whether is NFL-record streak of 297 straight starts would continue.



“If Brett’s healthy, Brett’s our quarterback,” Frazier said. “Tarvaris did a great job. Nothing against Tarvaris. We can win with Tarvaris.”



They did against the Bills, for sure, despite Jackson’s three interceptions.



Drayton Florence, who picked off the errant pass by Favre that floated in the air when he was flattened by a crushing hit from Arthur Moats, jumped on an out route later in the first quarter and returned the first of Jackson’s interceptions 40 yards for the game’s first score.
