The Vikings had lost to Detroit in both of their previous games at U.S. Bank Stadium and head coach Mike Zimmer only had a 3-5 record against the Lions heading into Sunday's game.

But things were different Sunday as the Vikings defense controlled quarterback Matthew Stafford's passing skills and the Lions' running game. Here's what people were talking about in the minutes after the game.
