    Our run defense will stuff them....then pin their ears back and rock the rook!


    Yes, its a division game....yes, they have a tradition of playing us tough, yes its an away game.....but I dont see this game being close at all.
    Lets go with 35-6.
    (35-13 with a punt return thrown into the mix)
    The same exact thing could have been said before last year's match-ups against the Lions and we were lucky to win either of those games...just sayin.

    With that said we SHOULD get a blowout win, lets hope for the best eh?

    Re: a little scary

    Divisional games are always a worry, we play each other twice a year and they know us better than every other team that we will play.
    Not to mention games we SHOULD win, are always scary... the team needs to not fall asleep and play lackluster against a team just because they think its in the bag.


    Lions were close against us both games last year, I remember them almost beating the Bears and the Packers too.


    We play the way we can and should play and we will hand them a loss they will never forget... but... you just never know.

    Exactly. Peterson had a total of 47carries 216yds 0td 4fumbles 2lost in the 2 games against Detroit last year. I can't even imagine the Lions defense could be worse this year than last.

    That's even more embarassing - they held AD in check (somewhat) @ 4.5 yards per carry, AND forced 4 F'ing fumbles.

    Nothing is guaranteed and we cannot put an x in the win column yet, but I like our chances.

    Here is our wild card against Detroit. I think we sweep them this year.
    Favre has lost to the Lions only three times this decade. That's right, he's 13-3 against them since the start of the 2000 season.

    Lions always play us tough man

    It's a road game

    We can always come out flat

    If we get to Stafford quick they won't stand a chance tho
    Agree 100%
    If we get him flustered, we will definitely win this game.

    Last week I was worried about Braylon Edwards(almost burned us for 6pts). This week I am even more worried about Calvin Johnson. I really think Calvin Johnson is probably the best WR in all of football, but plays on the worst team. I think he is capable of making multiple big plays to keep the Lions in it.
    No such thing as an easy win in the NFL, but this is as close as it gets.
    My thoughts exactly. Even a bonehead offensive coordinator would be able to find a way to get Johnson matched up with our young safety at some point...I think our team is way too good to actually get beaten by the Lions, but look how close the Raiders and Bills were to upsetting some pretty good teams before you say never.

    Simms always seem to step it up on stopping AD.
    I think he only has one game over 100 yards against them.
    Simms hit AD very hard last year several times.
    I hate how they played so inspired against us.

    I think our offense will have some issues.
    Look for a low scoring first half.
    BTW, what's up with all of these road games right out of the box?

    I think you're right.
    It'll be a tough divisional road game.
    Vikes 21 Lions 17... although there is a potential for a blowout if we're turnover free.

    btw, it's time to lose the moniker.
