Detroit Lions Leading Minnesota Vikings 10-0 in 2nd Quarter

Midwest Sports FansAnalyst ISeptember 20, 2009

Wow. Consider me shocked.

A few people (including Peter King) were predicting that the Lions could beat the Vikings this weekend and snap their 18-game losing streak. After watching Adrian Peterson carve up the Browns in the second half last week, and Drew Brees throw for 6 TDs against the Lions, I wasn’t buying it.

So far, so good for Detroit.

Rookie QB Matt Stafford just threw a TD pass to Calvin Johnson, and the Lions lead 10-0 with about 5 minutes left in the 2nd quarter.

Stay tuned...

Update: The Vikings, surprise surprise, scored on their next possession, a 1-yard TD pass from Brett Favre to Visanthe Shiancoe.  10-7 Lions.

Update: I officially jinxed the Lions. Adrian Peterson just treated the Lions D like they were the Browns and rumbled for a 27-yard TD. 17-10 Vikings. Sorry Detroit.
