GAME NOTES vs. BROWNS
1) Rookie C.J. Mosley had his first NFL sack, registering two in his most extensive action of the season. His two-sack performance ranks tied for third-most by a Vikings rookie, joining Kevin Williams (2003), Keith Millard (two times in 1985) and Alan Page (1967). Only Kevin Williams (2003) and Gerald Robinson (1986) had more sacks as a rookie in a single game.
2) Brad Johnson's three passing touchdowns give him a Vikings total of 50, which moves him into sixth place in franchise history, surpassing Randall Cunningham's total of 48. Wade Wilson (66) leads the way, followed by Warren Moon (58).
3) Darren Sharper's 24 interception return yards against Cleveland give him a season total of 265, a team record for the most in a season, breaking Jimmy Hitchcock's previous mark of 242 yards in 1998.
4) The last time the Vikings went undefeated in November was in 1999, and they've only done it five times in team history.
5) Marcus Robinson becomes only the third Viking to catch three passes for three touchdowns, joining Randy Moss (1998 vs. Dallas) and Charley Ferguson (1962 vs. Chicago).
