Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.

Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.

Simply put, the Lions can’t run the ball, which was evident in their loss to Green Bay. Detroit finished with a paltry 56 yards on 20 carries (2.8 yards per rush) against a Packers defense that’s struggled to defend the run.

For the year, the Lions are averaging only 3.8 yards per carry (26th in the NFL), so don’t expect Kerryon Johnson and Co. to churn out much on the ground against a Vikings defense that’s allowing the same amount (eighth).
