Give the Lions credit, but that’s yet another bewildering loss for the Vikings


Two issues will be true about Sunday’s beautiful 29–27 Lions victory over the Vikings.

The primary is that it’s considerably unbelievable, after a season spent stomaching shut, heartbreaking losses alternated by the occasional, demoralizing beatdown, that the Lions nonetheless had sufficient emotional fairness remaining to cull collectively a last-second landing drive to beat the second-best staff of their division 11 video games right into a winless season. We’ve seen numerous groups fall off the rails, implode and, as soon as the season goes south, fail to come back away with a victory to legitimize the arduous strategy of getting again on the area every Sunday. Detroit, to the staff’s credit score, has been a possible landmine for every opponent it’s confronted.
