A look back at the Detroit Lions’ 2014 season.
Teddy Bridgewater has learned on the fly since taking over as the Minnesota Vikings quarterback after Matt Cassel was injured in Week 3. Head coach Mike Zimmer is happy with the progress the rookie first round draft pick has made in his 10 starts. The Vikings are 0-5 in divisional games this season. They have one game left to get Zimmer’s first win against a division-rival. Linebacker Chad Greenway is one of eight finalists for the inaugural NFL’s Sportsmanship Award.
The Minnesota Vikings have seen their fair shares of injuries this season with four starters already on injured reserve. This week they will travel to Ford Field to take on the Detroit Lions without four more starters. Anthony Barr, Sharrif Floyd, Robert Blanton and Charlie Johnson all were declared out for the game. In total, the Vikings have nine players listed on the injury report. The Lions have nine players on their respective list as well.
The Minnesota Vikings play two of their last three games on the road, beginning with the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday. The Vikings lost to the Lions at TCF Bank Stadium in Week 6, 17-3. The Lions did not have most of their offensive weapons on the field or at 100 percent. The Vikings remain in the playoff picture, but need to win-out and get some help.
The Detroit Lions have won two Thanksgiving games in a row, both in blowout fashion no less. After nine straight losses on Turkey Day, it is a welcome change for Lions fans.

The Minnesota Vikings look to rebound from a bad defensive outing against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The team wants to improve their consistency and team play. Backup defensive tackle Tom Johnson was arrested early Sunday morning. The Lions already have a plethora of ailing stars. They may not play on Sunday. The Vikings added three players to the practice squad and released McLeod Bethel-Thompson.
The Detroit Lions had a chance to maintain sole possession of first place in the NFC North, but lost to the Buffalo Bills at home in Week 5. Now, all four teams in the division are within a game of first place. The Lions are a passing offense, but their defense has been their better unit this season.
One of last year’s top fantasy receivers, Josh Gordon, is facing a season-long suspension, but there are still plenty of talented wideouts to choose from. These players are studs no matter the scoring system.
