Hi, Lions Nation! Another NFL Game Day is here. Our 2-2-1 Detroit Lions were upset by the Green Bay Packers after giving up their lead, and eventually losing 23-24 on Monday Night Football, but had to move on to prepare to play their second straight NFC North opponent, as the 4-2 Minnesota Vikings come for another divisional showdown with the Lions to Ford Field.
After six weeks of NFL Regular Season action, our Lions NFL team record is still an even record, starting with a tie, two consecutive wins, then two straight losses, with their Week 5 bye week between their losses.
A sense of urgency is needed as the Lions begin their Week 7 as the Minnesota Vikings come to Ford
Field. Even Head Coach Mike Patricia stated in one of his press conference this game is a ‘must-win’ for the Lions.
Detroit tries to end their four-game regular season losing streak to Minnesota, their last win over the Vikings overall was their 14-7 win at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis back on October 1, 2017.
Detroit also seeks to win their first regular season home win over Minnesota since Matt Prater kicked his game-winning, 40-yard field goal as time expired, as the Lions won 16-13 at Ford Field, on the Thanksgiving Day Game, back on November 24, 2016.
Minnesota though leads the all-time regular season series, which began in 1960, at 74-39-2, in this afternoon’s 116th meeting.
