NEXT OPPONENT: DETROIT LIONS (1-5)
The Lions finally broke through with their first victory Sunday. Earlier this season, they lost to the Vikings 26-16 at TCF Bank Stadium.
OPPONENT WEEK 6
Lions 37, Chicago Bears 34
Matt Prater kicked a 27-yard field goal with 2:29 left in overtime to lift Detroit at home. Matthew Stafford heaved a 57-yard pass to Calvin Johnson to set up the kick for the Lions.
WHAT TO WATCH FOR
Calvin Johnson, wide receiver
Johnson (right) had six catches for 166 yards on Sunday. “Megatron” set an NFL record with 1,964 receiving yards in 2012, and passed the 10,000-yard mark in his eighth season last year.
Based on records, we’ll give the Vikings the edge, but beware a Lions turnaround. Outlook: Horns up.
