In Week 16, the Detroit Lions' final opponent of the 2013 season was not victorious. Here's a look at how the team performed:
After trading touchdowns with the Bengals early on in the first quarter, the Vikings seemed like they were going to give Cincinnati a game. Instead, though, the Vikings quickly faded and ended up going into halftime down 28-7. The deficit grew to 42-7 at one point in the third quarter, and as the score suggests, this was a one-sided affair. The Vikings had only 209 total yards, and they turned the ball over 4 times, including 3 interceptions by Matt Cassel. This was an ugly performance by Minnesota.
