What Channel Is the Vikings vs. Lions Game On?

"I'm very grouchy. Like (athletic trainer Eric Sugarman) always says, I make everybody miserable when I'm miserable".

Despite being one game out of a playoff position, the Lions still face a tough climb to qualify for postseason play.

Minnesota has won six straight games and leads the NFC North with a 8-2 record. Well, the Vikings have to win a good portion of the remaining six games on their schedule and at least two more playoff games before that happens, so we may want "tap the brakes" on that notion a bit. "We have to stick to the game plan and listen to our coaches as well, but it's going to be a mental game". "We're anxious about how we play and that's what our goal is to get focused in on our preparation and get ready to get a tough, hard-fought game". "Everybody's spirits are up, you're ready to play another game, even if it's a short week or not".

The Vikings have the first of three Thanksgiving games. The Vikings snatched a division title from the Packers in Week 17 at Lambeau Field two years ago, beat Green Bay on national TV in the U.S. Bank Stadium opener last season and changed the complexion of the division when Anthony Barr's hit broke Aaron Rodgers' collarbone on October 15 this year.

With the teams more than familiar with each other, Griffen said there isn't much that the teams do that surprises each other anymore. You have less time to really prepare. They filed silently and sullenly out of the visitors' locker room, having watched Lions kicker Matt Prater put a winning field goal through the uprights on the final play for the second time in 18 days. We look at these guys for who they are.

If the Lions - who handed the Vikings their most recent loss with a 14-7 decision at U.S. Bank Stadium on October 1 - win at home Thursday, they would pull within a game of the Vikings, and claim an advantage in any division tiebreaker by virtue of their third sweep of the season series in four years.

It's been the Lions, doormats for so many previous Vikings coaches, who have caused recent Minnesota teams the most trouble.

"We're winning games right now, so we're ready to play", Griffen said.

"The level that Riley is playing at now is a pretty high level", offensive line coach Tony Sparano said.

This will be the 113th matchup in a series that the Vikings lead 71-39-2.

The Minnesota native said he's stayed mentally sharp for any role he's needed for this season. "I'm not going to know when my number is called, but I make sure I'm prepared throughout the whole week". That win put the Lions in a tie for the division lead with the Green Bay Packers at 3-1. I just have confidence. Minnesota quarterbacks have been sacked just 10 times this season, and once in the past five games. They rank 30th in the league with 3.4 yards per carry.

Currently, the Detroit Lions are giving up 240.3 yards per game through the air this season.

Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright was asked about the extra publicity the team has gotten, but said the team hardly pays any attention to the national media pundits. “On the contrary, we havent done a great job at home.”. "We knew we could do it".
