Minnesota Vikings vs Detroit Lions 01/03/2021
The Minnesota Vikings almost had it this season and were playing in-and-out of the playoff picture. Their three-game losing streak kicked them out from playoff contention and this team is now looking forward to making some off-season moves and are projected to pick mid-way of the first round and may look to boost their defensive line. The losing streak was also due to a tough schedule as they were to try and pick up wins over the New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. A win here would be a pat on the back for the team who had a fairly good season.
Players to watch: K. Cousins QB (GP 15 CMP 321 ATT 476 CMP% 67.4 YDS 3860 AVG 8.1 YDS/G 267.7 LNG 71 TD 32 INT 13 SACK 36 SYL 234 RTG 103.1), D. Cook RB (GP 14 ATT 312 YDS 1557 AVG 5 LNG 70 BIG 6 TD 16 YDS/G 111.2 FUM 4 LST 2 FD 91), J. Jefferson WR (GP 15 REC 79 TGTS 113 YDS 1267 AVG 16 TD 7 LNG 71 BIG 22 YDS/G 84.5 FUM 0 LST 0 YAC 402 FD 52).
The Detroit Lions did not like how they are ending the season as they lost seven of their last nine matches. They eventually plummeted down the standings and will be carrying a 5-10 record entering their final match of the season this NFL Week 17. The team just didn’t look like trying to get some wins as they are set to get some moves in the off-season and draft from the fifth-eight pick depending on their finish. This team has been struggling at the QB position and they would probably look for that in the draft and probably get the likes of Justin Fields from Ohio State.
