Vikings Lions Rivalry
The Lions-Vikings rivalry is a rivalry between the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings. The Lions and Vikings have been battling since the Vikings entered the league in 1961. Minnesota has dominated the series; however, Detroit has given the Vikings, a usual contender for the NFL playoffs, many close games over the years.
Although the Vikings have dominated the rivalry, Lions fans claim to cause the Vikings more trouble than the other NFC North sides Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. Detroit are currently on a three game winning streak their second longest ever against the Vikings. The Lions have won both games that have gone to overtime between the pair in 2007 and 2011.
