Lions like Gus Frerotte


Posted by ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert

DETROIT -- Here's a good one for you: The Detroit Lions have three interceptions this season. Two have come against Minnesota's Gus Frerotte.

(Thanks to the Star Tribune's Judd Zulgad for pointing that out).

The most recent -- by linebacker Ryan Nece -- led to a 23-yard field goal from Jason Hanson, giving the Lions a 6-0 lead early in the second quarter.

This isn't totally unusual for the Lions, who had bigger leads against Carolina (10-0) and Tampa Bay (17-0) before imploding. But to this point, the Lions have been pretty steady and the Vikings have been exceedingly flat.

Will there be a turning point? We're waiting to find out.
