Chart: A look ahead to the Lions

  • September 23, 2012 - 11:29 PM

NEXT OPPONENT:

DETROIT

The Lions will be riding a two-game losing streak when they host the Vikings. But Detroit has won its only home game, defeating St. Louis 27-23 in Week 1.

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

Mikel Leshoure, running back

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.

OUTLOOK

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
