NFL Total Predictions: Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions 11/21/17

It's been the Lions, doormats for so many previous Vikings coaches, who have caused recent Minnesota teams the most trouble. That game, like those from 2016, were low scoring affairs (22-16 and 16-13 wins by Detroit), so this game will fall squarely on the shoulders of an offense going against the 23-ranked defense (20 against the pass, giving up 240.3 yards per game, and 19 against the rush, surrendering 114,2 rushing yards per game). Matthew Stafford has thrown for 2,760 yards and 19 touchdowns with five interceptions, but also has been sacked 33 times.

Coming off a big 24-7 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Minnesota now has just three days to prepare for their second meeting of the year with Detroit on Thursday in a Thanksgiving showdown.

But after beating Leslie Frazier's teams in four of seven meetings, the Lions have taken five of seven against Zimmer's teams, including the past three games. "They've got a good running game, two good running backs".

The Detroit Lions tend to bring in very large names for halftime performances of the annual Thanksgiving day game, and this year is no exception. It would improve their division record to 3-1, while handing the Lions their first division loss. This was a defensive dog fight that was ultimately won when cornerback Darius Slay picked off Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford late in the 4th quarter with the game tied. Many of the Lions young defensive backs have attributed "GQ" with some of their development with his knowledge that comes with almost nine years in the league. Darius Slay is one Lion that has been eager for a chance to represent the Honolulu Blue at the NFL's All-Star exhibition game. Adam Thielen had a 65-yard TD catch from Case Keenum.

White House says President Trump not endorsing Roy Moore
She supports Moore, even though she believes the women who accuse him of, at the very least, sexual deviancy. However, Ivey says she will vote for Moore anyway for the sake of GOP power in Congress.

Here are five Vikings-Lions storylines to watch this week.

They have already faced each one of their divisional opponents on the road and won each game. Winning at home is much easier than on the road in the National Football League, so each of those games looks promising with the Lions having the home field advantage this time. The Lions need the Panthers to falter a bit down the stretch, and a loss to the Jets - plus a win by the Lions - would leave Carolina with the same record, with the Panthers having to face New Orleans and Minnesota next. The Vikings hold a two-game lead over the Lions, setting up a huge game that is every bit as important as the Vikings victory over the Los Angeles Rams last week.

The Vikings, through 10 games, have been a pretty good team.
