Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions Preview
This Sunday at Mall of America Field, the Minnesota Vikings will square off against the inner-division foe Detroit Lions. Usually the Detroit Lions are a woeful bunch, having won 3 games total the last 2 seasons. However, this team feels a little different after the first 2 games. They were defeated by the Chicago Bears 19-14 in Chicago thanks to a overturned touchdown call with 19 seconds left that would have won them the game. A week later they lost to Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles 35-32. Rookie running back Jahvid Best has had a tremendous start and Calvin Johnson is one of the most talented receivers in the league. The Minnesota Vikings will need to play solid for 4 quarters and earn the victory. Prediction: Minnesota 27, Detroit 17. Go Vikings!
