Lions vs Vikings Prediction: Vikings to dominate the Lions

Lions vs Vikings Prediction: The Minnesota Vikings are expected to win the upcoming game against the Detroit Lions as per the latest prediction.

The Detroit Lions have a mighty challenge ahead as they will meet the Minnesota Vikings in the next NFL fixture on Sunday, 25 September. The Lions couldn’t start the season on a positive note as they lost their season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, they made a strong comeback by defeating the Washington Commanders in the last game. Jared Goff played well and finished with 256 passing yards and 4 passing touchdowns. The 3 sacks from Aidan Hutchinson helped the Lions get a big lead at halftime.

The Minnesota Vikings had a great start to the season after losing 3 consecutive games in the preseason as they began their campaign with an emphatic win against the Green Bay Packers. But they failed to capitalize on the momentum and lost the very next game to the Philadelphia Eagles. Kirk Cousins played like a lone warrior in that game as he added 221 passing yards, 3 interceptions, and 1 passing touchdown. The Vikings will aim to get back to winning ways when they host the Vikings at the U.S Bank Stadium in Minnesota.
