Gotta go with the Lions, they know how to win and keep it together.
No Adrian Peterson to worry about, so Lions can contain the pass.

Also like Redskins over Dallas. Cousins will rip up the Dallas backfield.

Lions strike first! A great way to kick off Wayne Fontes Day in America!

Congrats on the win, awesome game! Lions have the edge on the Vikings, having beat them twice! Too early to crown them Division champs but a possibility!

Yay Lions! Had a nice table set for my husband and grandson for yesterday to eat and guess what? We all moved in front of the TV with our turkey! What an ending...thank goodness for TV tables!

I thought maybe...just maybe.....that the Lions would've decided this game by halftime. Vikings' "D" showed up to change that mindset. Excellent defensive play calling for both teams, I reckon. Especially near the end when Slay was put into position to make that pick to set up Prater's field goal.


Bradford played well enough to win with all of those short accurate passes, but Stafford finds a way to win if he's kept alive in the pocket. Heh, even out of the pocket.


Coach Caldwell did a great job managing the game. Evident during the last Vikings possession......Lions had all three timeouts left and forced the Vikings to pass. THAT led to Slay's interception.


7-4 and on the road next week to New Orleans.

Glad to see the hardest working team in the land finally clicking. Let's go Lions! 7 out of last 8, no one gave us a shot but we're still in it.

Hope the Seahawks destroy the Packers next week btw.

Roarrrrrrrrrrr
