This was the game where Trent Dilfer got ejected for retaliating after one of the Viking defenders had spat in his face. The result was beyond doubt at that time after two Warren Moon TDs and a breakaway 66-yard run by Amp Lee had helped Minnesota to a 28-7 half-time lead. Casey Weldon threw his first NFL touchdown late in the game, a 38-yarder to Alvin Harper.
