Game #5 - Detroit Lions (0-4-0) at Minnesota Vikings (2-2-0) - Open Thread

AT
Coming off of a week 4 where a shootout at St. Louis fell just short of that first win of the season, the Lions now head to Minnesota looking to get a victory. This NFC North rivalry has been very one-sided in the past, with the Lions not winning much at all when playing the Vikings.

A very promising offense has been shown off and will look to continue its success this week. The defense however, has not been good at all since the opening weekend. That'll have to change if Detroit wants to get the win.

It should be a great game to watch, and hopefully I have the ability to talk about a win after all is said and done.

SB Nation has a great Vikings blog, Daily Norseman, so make sure to check it out sometime during today's game.
