Gameday is here and kickoff is just minutes away. Today, we find out where the Detroit Lions stack up in the NFC North as they kick off their divisional schedule against the Minnesota Vikings.
The Lions are hoping to turn their fortune around after being on the butt-end of a rough call in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons. An obscure rule is the only thing between an undefeated Lions team and reality: a 2-1 team in the thick of the hunt in the NFC North.
The Vikings are also 2-1, coming off a decisive win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Minnesota has managed to keep their head above water despite their top two quarterbacks dealing with serious knee injuries. They’ll have to head into Week 4, again, with their third-string quarterback, Case Keenum, behind center.
Both teams are hoping to keep pace with the NFC North’s current leader: the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay asserted their dominance earlier in the week, humbling the Chicago Bears on Lambeau Field during “Thursday Night Football.”
But today is about the Lions and Vikings. So join us during the first half of the game. Reminder: It is against SB Nation policy to link to or even discuss illegal NFL streams. If you post one, you will be banned.
