[to top of second column]
Sidney Rice had six catches for a career-high 176 yards and Adrian Peterson became the second running back in a row to top 100 against the Ravens' defense. He finished with 148 yards on 22 carries; Baltimore had gone 39 successive games without allowing a 100-yard rusher before Cedric Benson did it last week.
Ray Rice had 10 catches for 117 yards and rushed for 77 more and two scores for the Ravens, who have lost three in a row.
The Vikings' defense was dominant early, forcing the Ravens to punt on their first five possessions as Favre and the offense staked Minnesota to a two-touchdown lead.
But Pro Bowl cornerback Antoine Winfield left in the second quarter with a foot injury, and Flacco started picking apart the depleted secondary in the second half.
