The Minnesota Vikings started the season off with five straight wins, but now have dropped two straight and in danger of giving up full control of the NFC North to the Green Bay Packers and only a game up in the loss column over the Detroit Lions should they lost in Sunday’s game. The Lions are looking to pounce on the Vikings.

Matthew Stafford and Detroit have gotten a few close wins and only lost by a touchdown to the Houston Texans last week. The Lions have shown some promise, but haven’t been consistent. A complete game Sunday afternoon and the Lions could hand a crazy upset against the Vikings to throw things into disarray in the playoff hunt.
