The Minnesota Vikings are scheduled to take on the Lions in Detroit on Sunday.  This is a big divisional game for the Detroit Lions, who still have playoff hopes.  Meanwhile, the Vikings were eliminated from playoff contention on Thursday, when the Cardinals beat the Rams.

This will be the second meeting for the these two teams this season.  The first game was a lopsided affair which saw rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater throw three interceptions on the way to a 17-3 loss.  Now that Bridgewater has a bit more confidence coming off two very good games, there are hopes that things could be better for the Vikings this time around.

In anticipation of this game, I sat down with Braden Shackelford of FanSided’s The SideLion Report to discuss the game.  I asked him five questions about the game on Sunday and got some pretty interesting answers.
