What to Know

The Detroit Lions haven’t won a contest against the Minnesota Vikings since Oct. 1 of 2017, but they’ll be looking to end the drought next Sunday. Detroit and Minnesota will face off in an NFC North battle at 1 p.m. ET at U.S. Bank Stadium. If the game is anything like the Vikings’ 37-35 victory from their previous meeting in January, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

The Lions came up short against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, falling 24-14. WR Kalif Raymond put forth a good effort for the losing side as he snatched two receiving TDs.

Minnesota came within a touchdown against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, but they wound up with a 14-7 loss. QB Kirk Cousins had a pretty forgettable game, throwing one interception with only 5.34 yards per passing attempt.

The losses put Detroit at 0-4 and Minnesota at 1-3. A pair of defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Lions are fifth worst in the NFL in touchdowns allowed, with 13 on the season. The Vikings’ defense has more to brag about, as they they enter the matchup with 13 sacks, good for fourth best in the league.
