We have reached week seven of the NFL season and this is a big NFC North showdown.
In this game the Minnesota Vikings make the trip to Ford Field to take on the Detroit Lions. The NFC North is competitive so this is a huge game for both teams.
The Minnesota Vikings have had an up and down season to start but they are hot coming into this game having won two in a row.
In their last game against the Philadelphia Eagles, it might have been their most impressive win of the season. It was their best win of the season in terms of talent and Kirk Cousins beat a good team, something he has been knocked for not doing.
The Vikings are still a defense first team averaging only 15.5 points per game which is sixth best in football. Mike Zimmer has the troops playing well on that side of the ball and the only real struggles they have had is the first couple of drives of the games.
In this game it’s going to take a complete game and Cousins needs to play like has the first couple of games. If Cousins has a big game they should be able to come away with a victory.
If Cousins struggles and the Vikings lose, there are going to be questions surronding him again and that isn’t what the team wants.
The Detroit Lions have had a decent start to their season, and an argument could be made they should be sitting in first place in the NFC North, but in their last game they lost to the Green Bay Packers, so now they sit in last place.
The refs didn’t help them in their last game against the Packers, but they struggled to score touchdowns and settled for field goals and that led to the issues and the loss.
On the season they are middle of the road on offense and defense. On the season they are averaging 23.8 points per game while giving up 23.6 on the defensive side.
In this game they are facing a really strong defensive team so it’s going to be crucial they aren’t settling for field goals.
When they get into the red zone, they need to get touchdowns. If they are settling, they will settle for the same fate as they did against the Packers.

NFL Free Week 7 Score Prediction: Vikings 17 – Lions 13
I think the Vikings are going to make life tough on the Lions, and that is going to make it tough to score. It’s a lean to the Vikings but the play is with the under.
