Lions vs Vikings Live

Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings (7-6-1) will have two golden opportunities to secure their second straight playoff berth. The first comes against Matthew Stanford and the Detroit Lions (5-9) in a pivotal NFC North matchup at Ford Field as Week 16 action continues on Sunday afternoon.

Minnesota will challenge Detroit on the road at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday. Minnesota will be strutting in after a victory while Detroit will be stumbling in from a loss.

After a disappointing seven points in their last game, Minnesota made sure to put some points up on the board against Miami last Sunday. Minnesota put the hurt on Miami with a sharp 41-17 win. No one put up better numbers for Minnesota than Dalvin Cook, who really brought his A game. He rushed for 136 yards and 2 touchdowns on 19 carries.

Meanwhile, Detroit had victory within their grasp but couldn’t quite capture it as the team lost 13-14 to Buffalo.

Minnesota are the favorite in this one, with an expected 6.5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (5-2-1), so they might be worth a quick bet.

Minnesota had enough points to win and then some against Detroit the last time the two teams met, taking their contest 24-9. The rematch might be a little tougher for Minnesota since the squad won’t have home-field advantage. We’ll see if the change in venue makes a difference.

The Vikings (7-6-1) posted a season-high in points during their 41-17 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 15. Running back Dalvin Cook rushed for a season-high 136 yards and two touchdowns as the Vikings rushed for 220 yards as a team in the game. The Vikings defeated the Lions 24-9 during Week 9.

Perhaps some Lions fans are wondering why first-year coach Matt Patricia isn’t on the hot seat. The best the Lions (5-9) can do in 2018 is match the worst season under former coach Jim Caldwell (7-9). Caldwell was fired after back-to-back 9-7 seasons while Patricia won’t come close to that record in 2018.
