Keenum also took a sack when the Vikings faced a third-and-goal at the Lions three-yard line that put Minnesota in a poor spot for a desperation fourth down attempt at the 14-yard line.

On offense, the Vikings find holes in the Detroit defense and expose them. Trubisky can certainly buy time and get it there, but will anyone be open against that talented Vikings secondary that held Golden Tate to three catches for 29 yards and Eric Ebron and Marvin Jones to two receptions each? The defense sealed the victory when they scopped up Adam Thielen's fumble in the Vikings final drive. This week it was three forced fumbles.

The Lions have had no time to lament, of course, with a hard game looming at division rival Minnesota. "Expect a couple of Matt Prater field goals; a year ago he was an important part of both victories".

Linebacker Tahir Whitehead lead the team with five solo tackles.

"Dalvin's a really explosive player, and he has such good big-play ability", Zimmer said.

With Cook's season in doubt, the Vikings can not rely exclusively on Jerick McKinnon to fill the void left by the rookie rusher. As a matter of fact, blocking tight end Darren Fells led Detroit with four catches Sunday. We just turned the ball over.

Caldwell said after Sunday's classic NFC North showdown that he's beginning to learn a few things about his team.

We won't know anything until further tests are done. That's something we've talked about for a long time.

Cook cut against a defender and went down, fumbling in the process.

The defensive struggle was well under way before the Lions broke the scoreless tie with a 29-yard Matt Prater field goal midway through the second quarter.

Even rookie tight end Michael Roberts got into the action. Longa had his best game as a Lion today and is worthy of all our respect for playing just days after the tragic death of his father.

This marked the third straight time that Detroit has beaten Minnesota.

Thanks to Abdullah, the Lions did find some cracks.

Cook scored Minnesota's lone touchdown and had 13 carries for 66 yards, along with an 8-yard reception, prior to his injury.

But what were the good, bad, and interesting things from the game?

Abdullah finished with 94 yards, leaving him 6 shy of becoming Detroit's first 100-yard rusher since Thanksgiving 2013. "I think he's starting to develop more confidence". Mariota, who suffered the injury on his second touchdown run, will undergo an MRI on his hamstring, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.
