NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions David Reginek-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Holidays!

The Detroit Lions are on the road in Week 16 as they travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings for the first of two matchups over the next three weeks. The NFC North division champion will be one of these two teams and could be decided by the end of this game.

The Lions (10-4) enter the matchup with a three-game lead in the division over the Vikings (7-7) and Detroit’s path to the division crown is simple: if they beat the Vikings, they will be Kings of the North for the first time in 30 years. Additionally, any Vikings loss over the next three weeks would also result in Detroit becoming champions of the North.

However, if the Lions struggle down the stretch and lose all three of their remaining games, combined with the Vikings going on a run and winning all three of their remaining games, Minnesota would take the division.

So, Detroit holds its future in its hands.

The folks over at DraftKings Sportsbook are favoring the Lions by a field goal in this game, which is no surprise considering Detroit waxed Denver 42-17 at home and Minnesota lost to the Cincinnati Bengals in overtime last weekend.
