Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota Vikings FREE LIVE STREAM (11/08/2020), Match Information, Prediction and Live Info.

As they reach the halfway point in their season with next Sunday’s road game against the Minnesota Vikings, the Detroit Lions are still searching to find a way to stop opponents when they get on a roll.

When the opponent gets rolling, it’s like an avalanche roaring down the mountainside and the Lions get buried.

We learned that again in the Lions’ 41-21 loss to the Indianapolis Colts at Ford Field. As has happened in their three previous losses this season, the Colts took over after falling behind 7-0, and they were in charge to the finish.

Among the other things we learned include the following: The Lions have not been able to count on their running game being productive on a consistent basis; the Lions continue to have no advantage playing at home at Ford Field; and to quote what a pundit once said about one of the political parties, the Lions “never fail to take advantage of failing to take advantage.”

The Lions made a break for themselves in the first quarter when Miles Killebrew blocked a Colts punt that gave the Lions possession in Colts territory. In two plays, the Lions scored on quarterback Matthew Stafford’s 25-yard pass to wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. for a 7-0 lead. It looked like the Lions would take command. They didn’t. The Colts answered back with touchdowns on three straight possessions to take a 20-7 lead. That wasn’t the end, though.

The Lions got a TD in the third quarter to make it 20-14 and were moving the ball again late in the third quarter when disaster struck. First Stafford lost a fumble on a sack. The Colts converted that into a touchdown to make the lead 28-14 with the addition of a two-point conversion. Eight seconds later, the Colts scored again on an interception return. That made it 35-14.

But it was nothing we haven’t seen before this season. On opening day, the Bears scored three TDs in the fourth quarter to wipe out a 23-6 deficit and win, 27-23.

In Week 2 at Green Bay, the Lions had a 14-3 lead with touchdowns on their first two possessions. That disappeared as the Packers scored 31 straight points on the way to a 42-21 Packers win.

And Week 4 at Ford Field, the Lions had a 14-0 lead in the first five minutes. The Saints scored five straight touchdowns to wipe out the Lions’ early lead and win, 35-29.

What we’ve learned this year is that the Lions have their moments, but their opponents have bigger ones.

On the run: The Lions seemed to have found their running game with an impressive 180-yard performance in a 34-16 win over the Jaguars in Week 5. Rookie D’Andre Swift led the way with 116 yards.But that didn’t last long. The Lions were held to 64 the next week in a win over the Atlanta Falcons, and they managed only 29 against the Colts.Like a lot of things that ail the Lions, consistency in their run game – and run defense – is missing. Don’t expect either to be good on any given week.

Prediction:

Detroit is a +170 road underdog with a win probability of 36.4% or fractional odds of 7/4 (2.75 decimal odds) in Week 9. If Detroit wins outright or loses by 3 or fewer points, a Lions +3.5 (-110) ticket cashes.

The Vikings are favorites, at -209 with an implied win probability of 67.6%. Those odds are expressed fractionally as 100/209 or 1.48 decimal odds. Minnesota needs to win by 4 or more points for a Vikings -3.5 (-110) bet to win.
