Neither the Detroit Lions nor the Minnesota Vikings are playing for anything other than draft positioning on Sunday but that hasn’t stopped them from engaging in a northern division collision that has seen good defense and bad offense mix for a low scoring game.
But the scoring has happened and it’s happened off of big plays on both sides of the field. Cordarrelle Patterson had a huge 50-yard touchdown run in the first half and it took until the third quarter for the Lions to answer with a touchdown of their own.
The score came courtesy of Reggie Bush who continued to do his thing for the Lions out of the backfield, even if this season hasn’t gone as planned. Bush’s touchdown tied the game at 7-7 though and reminded us that either both of these defenses are really good when they want to be, or both of these offenses are just really bad, even when they try.
