LIONS WEEK 3
Tennessee 44, Detroit 41 (OT)
The Lions tied the score on a 46-yard pass on the final play of regulation, then went for the overtime victory on fourth-and-1 at the Titans 7 rather than kick a field goal to extend the game.
WHAT TO WATCH FOR

The 2011 second-round draft pick out of Illinois made his long-awaited NFL debut Sunday and responded with 26 carries for 100 yards and a TD and four receptions for 34 yards.
The Vikings are coming off a huge victory over the 49ers and can add legitimacy to their playoff hopes with a victory over an NFC North rival.
Outlook: Horns up
