We have reached four of the NFL season.
In this game we have a huge NFC North showdown on Sunday afternoon at US Bank Stadium, in Minneapolis.
The Detroit Lions come to town to take on the Minnesota Vikings. There is a three way tie at top of the NFC North with the Vikings, Packers and Lions all sitting at 2-1.
This game could have a big say in who wins the NFC North, so look for both teams to really play with a lot of desperation.
The Detroit Lions are about a half yard away from being 3-0 but they couldn’t get that half of yard so they come into this game with a 2-1 record.
They almost had one of their signature comebacks with Golden Tate catching a slant route that looked to be a touchdown, and ruled that way on the field with nine seconds remaining.
After review though it was ruled down at the half yard line, and with the rule stating for a ten second run off in that situation, the Lions didn’t have any timeouts so the game was ruled over.
Even with that loss though the Lions have looked like a team that thinks they are for real this year, and are playing with a new confidence and swagger.
In the first two games they beat the Giants and the Cardinals and they looked dominating do so.
Matthew Stafford has looked the part of the highest paid quarterback and comes into this game having thrown for 678 yards and seven touchdowns.
He also only has one interception which might be the most impressive part. He is making smarter decisions with the ball which will be huge against the Vikings defense that picked off the Buccaneers three times in their last game.
The defense also needs to be good in this game. The Vikings offense has looked good this year, no matter who has been the quarterback and if the Lions aren’t careful the secondary will torch them.
On the other side of this match up is the Minnesota Vikings who really opened up a lot of eyes with the their victory over The Buccaneers a team that was favored in the game.
Most expected Sam Bradford would start in the game but then on Friday it was announced Bradford would be out and Case Keenum would make the start.
All Keenum did against the Buccaneers was throw 369 yards and three touchdowns on the way to a 34-17 victory.
The Vikings might have one of the best one two punches in the NFL at the wide receiver position. Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have combined for 36 catches, 592 yards and four touchdowns.
Dalvin Cook has also looked like the real deal. He has rushed for 288 yards and caught another 88.
