The Vikings have won the last two games played between the two teams.
The Minnesota Vikings have had an up and down season but they still control their destiny to get into the playoffs. If they win their final two games against the Lions and the Bears, they have a guaranteed a spot in the playoff.
They had lost two games in a row but decided to make a change at offensive coordinator and in their last game against the Dolphins it was a different team.
They put up 41 points and the defense was strong again and that led to an easy victory. The offense got a push up front and Dalvin Cook was having success running the ball and that led to an easy victory.

As good as the offense was in that game and as good as it needs to be the strength is still the defensive side of the ball.
The first time these two teams played this year that defense wreaked havoc on the offensive line hitting Matthew Stafford time after time and that led to them only giving up nine points.
In this game that defense needs to be good and try to wreak havoc early and often.
On the other side of this matchup is the Detroit Lions who have had another bad season and there have to question if they regret making changes at head coach.
They come into this game having only won five games and in their last game they had a terrible loss at the hands of the Buffalo Bills.
The offense struggled again scoring only 13 points and even though the defense only gave up 14 points, it still wasn’t enough to win.
All season the problems for the offense has been scoring points. They are only averaging 20 points per game and with Stafford as quarterback that is an issue.

In this game the offense needs to find a way to keep Stafford standing upright. If he has no time this game will get ugly early.
