Carter bounces back for 46-yard TD, as Vikings beat misfiring 49ers, 17-14


MINNEAPOLIS -- The San Francisco 49ers learned the hard way that you can't keep a good receiver down.

Anthony Carter, his left knee within inches of the turf, bounced off safety Johnnie Jackson and turned a short pass into a 46-yard touchdown yesterday, sparking the Minnesota Vikings to 17-14 victory.

Jerry Rice caught two touchdown passes, but Carter -- who also made a diving catch to set up Herschel Walker's go-ahead score and a 32-yard reverse that helped the Vikings run out the clock -- was the big-play receiver.
