This is my TD play.
10:00 am pst.
I feel this line is off several points, folks. The Vikings should be closer to a TD favorite. This game is do-or-die for them to turn their regular-season around and make a run at the postseason. Sure, the Vikings pass defense leaves a lot to be desired. But, with Matthew Stafford’s status up in the air (he’s eligible to play if tests negative five straight days), either way, the Detroit team will be distracted and out of sync.
The Vikings are an entirely different team with Dalvin Cook on the field, s the Packers found out last week (3 rushing TD’s, 1 receiving TD). The Lions rank 23rd in run defense and 26th overall in scoring, giving up 29.4 PPG. With Cook in the backfield, it also allows Kirk Cousins to open up the passing game. And he will, guys.
Detroit has lost and failed to cover five straight in this series, is 4-1 L14 vs. the NFC, and 5-13 L18 overall Minnesota is 7-3 L10 in November, 19-9-1 L29 vs. losers, and 38-18-1 L57 at home. Take the Vikings. Thank you.
