The Detroit Lions have been very close to winning both of their games, while the Minnesota Vikings have underachieved thus far.
Brett Favre seems to lack motivation, which is almost as surprising as the Vikings' 0-2 start.
The Lions seem to be headed in the right direction, with a motivated head coach that is dedicated to their turnaround. The Vikings, however, are headed in the wrong direction, especially after Brett Favre retires.
Look for Calvin Johnson of the Lions to exploit an injured Vikings secondary.
If the Vikings want to get back on track, they will need to do so by giving Adrian Peterson the ball any time they can. Peterson was the only bright spot in the loss to the Dolphins, though he was denied a touchdown on a goal line stand.
Prediction: Vikings Win 31-21
