MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Andre Johnson was silenced until the very
end, and Houston's winning streak ended with a harsh welcome by
Holding Johnson to 62 yards on four receptions and a late score,
the Vikings forced three turnovers and got three touchdown passes
from Gus Frerotte in a 28-21 victory over the Texans on Sunday.
Minnesota (4-4) returned from the bye week fully recharged.
Madieu Williams intercepted Sage Rosenfels in the end zone in the
third quarter, and Antoine Winfield picked off Matt Schaub at the
Vikings 5 before Houston's starting quarterback was sidelined at
halftime by an injury to his left knee.
