    Detroit Lions are good at something: Agonizing losses

    MINNEAPOLIS — Funny, how memories tug on your mind and make you long for the past.

    But memories can do something else. They can clear your mind and give you a better view of the present, too. And that brings me to what happened on Sunday afternoon, as the Minnesota Vikings beat the Detroit Lions on a last-second field goal, 19-17.

    Yes, another last-second field goal.

    Unbelievable. But at least this one didn’t need a bounce.

    I always get nostalgic when I go to Minnesota because I covered the Vikings as a beat writer for the St. Paul Pioneer Press when Randy Moss was starting out in the league.

    3 QUESTIONS:Dan Campbell’s late-game strategy vs. Vikings was smart, almost worked

    The 1998 Vikings team was incredible. The Vikings were exciting and explosive, setting an NFL scoring record and going 15-1. The Vikings had talent all over the field, including a pair of future Hall of Fame wide receivers in Moss and Cris Carter.

    Now, that was a freakin’ football team.

    And that’s what I was thinking about on Sunday afternoon, sitting in the press box at U.S. Bank Stadium, as fake snowflakes fell from the roof.
