Ep: 301 – Lions On To Minnesota Vikings – Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris, Case, and Jeff Risdon take you through the Lions loss against the Indianapolis Colts, look ahead to the Minnesota Vikings, and talk through the Matthew Stafford Covid/Reserve situation. We also prep you for Friday’s 24-hour Detroit Lions Podcast-a-thon for St. Jude. We have a number of great guests joining us for the show, you will definitely want to join us for that. It all starts at 9:00 am EST at DetroitLionsPodcast.com

The Minnesota Vikings Are Beatable

Even after their big win against Green Bay, the Minnesota Vikings have flaws. Both of their games against the Green Bay Packers were shoot outs with total scores of at least 50 points. That being said, they have lost to the Indianapolis Colts and Atlanta Falcons on the way to their 2-5 record. There is also the great match-up of the Lions Everson Griffen vs. Riley Reiff of the Minnesota Vikings. No matter the outcome of the game, that should be a fun match-up to watch for Lions fans.

We discuss the possibility of Matthew Stafford playing for the Lions after his trip to the Reserve/Covid list. It is possible, and there are some interesting logistics involved, but it’s still a possibility that Matthew Stafford plays. The good news is that if we have to play Chase Daniel instead of Matthew Stafford, he’s a 2-0 against the Minnesota Vikings, no reason this team shouldn’t be able to help him get to a 3-0 record.

Tell Everyone You Know!

Our 24-hour Podcast-a-thon St. Jude fundraiser is this coming Friday – November 6th – we’ll have a number of very important guests including Lions players (past and present), Lions coaches, national level sports stars and a whole lot more.

After spending a few years in the Detroit Lions Reddit community he decided to start the Detroit Lions Podcast. Its become the #1 Detroit Lions podcast, and regularly ranks with the top podcasts in Detroit. With a mixture of pre-recorded shows, live & recorded phone-ins, and live post-game broadcasts - this is his slice of Honolulu Blue heaven.
