Vikings Concerned RB Dalvin Cook Tore ACL

Last week, with Nick Bellore starting at middle linebacker and the Lions shuffling linebacker personnel in their nickel package, the Lions allowed a season-high 151 yards rushing.

Meanwhile, last year's punter for Minnesota, Jeff Locke, had a banner day for Detroit.

Linebacker Tahir Whitehead lead the team with five solo tackles. That simply isn't good enough and there's little hope for the Bears to get a result when they give the ball away so consistently for free. The third-year back rushed for 94 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.

Vikings quarterbacks Sam Bradford and Case Keenum had combined to throw for six touchdowns, zero interceptions, and averaged 358 yards passing in home wins against the Saints and Buccaneers this season. While safeties Glover Quin and Tavon Wilson each forced a fumble. "They are showing up week-in and week-out". We're flopping on the ball. Green Bay would go on to complete their excellent comeback 27-24 in overtime. "We didn't wrap him up", Griffen said. He appeared shaken up towards the end of the game.

The Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns will come together in a clash at the FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland on Sunday. "That's why I love this team".

Lions coach Jim Caldwell did not offer any updates on the status of Worrilow, who went to the locker room after just one play and did not return. All of his catches came in the first half and all were for big first downs. Abdullah added 15 yards receiving to his total.

Officials say the total death toll is now 273, and the mayor of Mexico City says 50 people are still unaccounted for. Volunteers helped in the rescue work, wearing face masks and bicycle helmets and wielding pickaxes and shovels.

Even rookie tight end Michael Roberts got into the action.

Dalvin Cook had picked up another first down, with Minnesota clinging to a one-point lead over Detroit midway through the third quarter, when he planted his left leg on the turf with a juke to try to cut right for more yards.

"They're making some plays on the ball. We didn't tackle in some certain situations as well as I would've liked, but they had their backs to the wall after those first two turnovers, and I thought they fought". Thanks to Abdullah, the Lions dominated time of possession 36:27-23:33.

"We knew it was going to be tough".

That means the Lions have gone 56 consecutive games without a player rushing for at least 100 yards. "It's frustrating, but I'll start a new streak next week". Those guys did that consistently all night. "So we'll have to look at things differently". Stafford said he's enjoyed hearing the sound for Prater's foot solidly hitting the ball at home games when it's quieter for the offense. "He got there early, but I can't make the call for myself".

Health was a concern surrounding Cook when he entered the 2017 National Football League draft. That's a good sign moving forward.
