Which members of the Detroit Lions should the Minnesota Vikings be concerned about?

The Minnesota Vikings are coming off a huge win against their most hated of rivals in the Green Bay Packers. The dance in the division continues this week for the Vikings as the Detroit Lions come to town.

The Lions have found a little more success this season than the purple and gold, but they head into the game this week without their star receiver Kenny Golladay and possibly without quarterback Matt Stafford.

If those two are out, it definitely swings the tide a bit in favor of Minnesota. Despite that fortunate turn for the Vikings, Detroit is still loaded with plenty of other talented players on their roster.

Minnesota is in no position where they can overlook a team and just assume they’ll get an easy victory because their opponent is missing two key pieces of their offense.

The Vikings and Lions have had a great rivalry over the years. While Minnesota currently leads the overall series 76-39-2, there are Detroit players who always seem to shine the brightest when they face the purple and gold.

Who are some of the Lions players the Vikings need to be the most concerned about during this week’s matchup?
