Lions hanging in

MINNEAPOLIS -- We have a barnburner here of sorts.

Minnesota capitalized on an early second-half fumble to take a 14-point lead but hasn’t been able to land a knockout punch on Detroit. The Lions put together an 84-yard drive, resulting in an 8-yard touchdown pass to Will Heller to make it 17-10, and they now have their second possession with a chance to tie.

I’m not sure if the Lions have the firepower to put together a full comeback, but to this point they haven’t gone away. The Vikings, penalized 10 times thus far, are doing their part.

I’ll keep you updated.
