The Vikings are missing Dalvin Cook, who’s out after the passing of his father.

They’re also coming off arguably the worst defensive performance of the season, getting hit for 583 yards by New Orleans and a record-setting day from Alvin Kamara.

The Vikings have lost three straight, the defense has gone bye-bye, and …

Detroit is a whole lot worse.

The Lins are trying, but they came within one total Chicago collapse away from being on a seven game losing streak.

The defense isn’t taking the ball away – there hasn’t been a forced turnover in three games – and worst of all, the pass defense is getting absolutely torched.

The Lions are last in the NFL in TD passes allowed, they’re getting dinked and dunked on to death, and Minnesota is going to all passing, all the time.

Throw in the injury issue with a banged up Matthew Stafford, and even if he does play, the Vikings giving up four in a shootout isn’t that bad.
