This was a close game the first time they played and the Lions had a lead for a good portion of it. The Vikings have gotten away with some really close wins over the last month and their pass defense is bottom 10 in the NFL in a lot of categories. The Lions should be able to move the ball and at 5-7 this game is a lot more important for the Lions than the Vikings sitting comfortably at the top of the division.
