The Minnesota Vikings are taking on their NFC North rival this week in front of a home crowd at U.S. Bank Stadium.
Through three weeks of the 2017 NFL season, the Minnesota Vikings are 2-1. It still seems way to early to try and determine how much success they will have this year, but their matchup this week with the Detroit Lions could help in revealing a little more of their true potential.
In 2016, the Vikings lost both of their games to the Lions. Both contests were close, but the end result never ended up in Minnesota’s favor.
Heading into Sunday’s matchup, each team is 2-1 on the season and looking to keep pace with the Green Bay Packers for the division lead.
Which players on their roster will the Vikings need to step up and perform at a high level this week in order to have a chance at defeating Detroit?
