[451] Minnesota Vikings Post Game – Detroit Lions Podcast Reacts

In this episode of the Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Ash are back to react to the result of the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings game. Lions win celebration? Detroit Lions loss therapy? We’re always ready for whatever comes, and we’re here to help you along the way. The biggest question facing the Lions and Detroit Lions fans, does Jameson Williams contribution signal start of a Lions run to the playoffs? This game will be the decider on whether the Detroit Lions remain in the hunt for a playoff opportunity. This is truly a signature game for the Detroit Lions and will be a clear signal for how much confidence fans should have in the rebuild.

Detroit Lions Podcast Reacts

While both teams have been battling illness, particularly the flu, Ben Johnson and the Detroit Lions offense will be tasked with finding weaknesses on a strong Minnesota Vikings defense. The best part of the Minnesota Vikings team is their defense, and cracking the code there will be quite difficult. If the Lions can get Jameson Williams involved and begin stretching the Minnesota Vikings defense downfield, they may be able to open up key routes for DJ Chark and Amon Ra St Brown. The best offensive weapon the Lions may have is speed and using it to create openings in the Minnesota Vikings defense. One of the best early indicators of success will be the Detroit Lions offense ability to score. They put up the points, and they’ll have every chance to walk away winners this week.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Lions have to play tight and with the same type of success as they have in recent weeks. If the Lions defense can do that, Aidan Hutchinson and and Alim McNeil can continue their strong run. If James Houston can continue to play in the breakout manner he has so far, and harass Kirk Cousins, the Lions could find defensive success against the Vikings.  The Detroit Lions defense will need to play the Minnesota Vikings defense very closely to win this game.

This game is key to the future of the Detroit Lions 2022 NFL season and playoff hopes. For the Minnesota Vikings, this is an opportunity to clinch the NFC North. Its going to be an awesome show, so buckle up!

Speaking of “buckle up”, make sure to head over to our project with Detroit Lions shutdown cornerback Jerry Jacobs to help charities in Detroit. Its a great opportunity to get some great gear and make a difference in the city we all love.
