The Vikings not only beat the Lions, they beat them up. Love that physical game that the Defense plays, as well as how well the revamped O'line has been playing.
Even Mega Tron had alligator arms later in the game after being lit up by Harrison and Chad.
Early investments made big dividends late.

I find the Vikings early success both shocking and disgusting. They need to go back to playing Viking football!!!!

I hope they play like that against the Bears too. I thought they might only win 6 games this year… half way there a quarter of the way through the season, not bad at all.

Actually Sister Christian has been playing quite well for them this season. Even had a fine game against the stout 49ers D. They might have found themselves a QB after all.

Many things seem to have fallen in line on short notice for this Viking team. You, I, and everybody else wrote them off based on last years performance, and this years expectations. Somehow they have found confidence in themselves and must have been tired of getting run over.
A lot of season left, but gb may have more to worry about from the NW than the S.
