Lions have finally managed to come back to winning ways. Detroit is going through a rough patch currently. Detroits are usually a formidable team in the NFL circuit. They have had some memorable seasons in the past. This year too, their start was promising. However, as the tournament progressed, they began to fade away. This happened largely due to a communication gap between the players.
The players did not seem to get along well with each other. They lacked teamwork. This led to one of the worst losing streaks in Detroit’s history. The team failed to win a match for almost one year. Their recent victory against the Vikings came after three hundred and sixty-four days. Detroits triumphed over the Minnesota Vikings 29-27 this Sunday.
The Lions played a thrilling encounter against the Vikings. The match started in a dull manner for Detroit. However, as the match progressed, the team slowly began to get its foothold. The win was significant as it ended the fifteen-match losing streak for the team as well. The victory also handed Dan Campbell his first win as coach. Let us know more about the match in detail below.
Lions Vs Vikings: Jared Goff Leads The Way
Jared Goff was the star of the night for the Lions. His touchdown pass of eleven yards was the deciding factor. That dying minutes’ pass proved to be the difference between the two teams. The athlete performed superbly during the match. He led a decisive possession for seventy-five yards without a break.
The Vikings did not help themselves either. They missed several opportunities in the match. They failed to convert two points at a crucial moment. All these misses added up as the Lions capitalized. The win would certainly bolster the confidence of the Detroit Lions.
