Detroit season fell off the map a month ago, now they can only play spoiler, if that.
Minnesota has fallen a game behind Green Bay in the NFC North so they cannot afford any kind of bad loss at this point.
Detroit has lost 5 straight but the dam hasn’t broken yet. Each loss has been by no more than one score. I am actually kind of surprised that the Lions have held together as well as they have to be honest.
Last week they gave the ball to David Blough at quarterback and given the circumstances he was actually alright. he did throw one interception but overall he was pretty poised for an undrafted rookie.
Detroit also focused on the running game and Bo Scarbrough rushed for over 80 yards. Minnesota has a good defense and they are going to have to emphasize the running game to give Blough a chance.
The Detroit defense gives up a lot of yards and points so there is going to be pressure on the above to keep pace. That is not good for a limited offense.
Detroit has not quit yet but Minnesota could be a little angry and this looks like a spot where the effort and emotion is finally gone.
The Vikings are looking to rebound from a tough road loss at Seattle. It was a wild game between good teams that somebody had to lose.
The only downside for the Vikings coming into this one is a little less preparation time but I don’t think that will hamstring them too much against Detroit.
Minnesota could not get the running game going against Seattle but I imagine that will not be an issue in this one, Dalvin Cook is having a great season.
Kirk Cousins proved once again last week that he is not at his best in the biggest moments but against weak teams like Detroit he is usually on fire. He had his best game of the season against Detroit in Week 7.
The Minnesota defense has given up a lot more of late than they did earlier in the season. I am not sure if that is just an opponent thing or something to watch more closely. Either way, they should be alright here.

That is a lot of chalk but the Vikes should be able to shut down the Lions offense while shredding their defense. Winning each half by a TD seems more more than likely.
