Coming off a disappointing loss to the Buffalo Bills, the Detroit Lions are still sitting atop the NFC North but lack any sort of separation from the resurgent Packers, Bears, and even the Vikings.  Only a single win separates the top and the bottom of the division, so a divisional match up like the Lions have this week against the Minnesota Vikings becomes even more important.  Unlike their previous few games, most of the match ups against Minnesota are pretty straightforward.  With Calvin Johnson likely sitting, Reggie Bush uncertain, and the Lions offense struggling as much as their defense is dominating, there are few below the surface match ups to look out for.  (more…)
