    Lions cut Vikings lead to 16-9 with 2:30 left

    The Lions take on the Minnesota Vikings at 1 p.m. Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Winless Detroit is back on the road for the second consecutive week, after falling to the Chicago Bears 24-14 last Sunday.

    The Lions again face an NFC North division rival in Minnesota.

    Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins celebrates with his teammates.

    Can injury-plagued Detroit break through against Kirk Cousins, Adam Thielen and Minnesota, which has had its own struggles, losing three of four?

    Follow along here for live updates from Detroit News contributor Nolan Bianchi.

    Second half

    Lions make it a one-score game, late in fourth

    The Vikings have it first-and-10 at the Lions 34 with a 10-point lead, and that should be the beginning of the end for Detroit.

    The Lions burn two of their timeouts to stop the Vikings, and that ends up in a third-and-7 that Kirk Cousins just burns. Greg Joseph’s 49-yard field goal is short.

    Vikings 16, Lions 6 (3:17 4th)

    So the Lions will take over at their own 39.

    Jared Goff hits Amon-Ra St. Brown for a pickup of 18 yards, then dumps it off to D’Andre Swift for a pickup of 21 to the Minnesota 22. All of a sudden, the Lions are in business.

    Goff misses his next two passes, bringing up third-and-10.

    Timeout #1 Minnesota (2:37 4th)

    Goff throws into the dirt on third down.

    Austin Seibert hits the 40-yard field goal, and it’s a one-score game.

    Vikings 16, Lions 9 (2:30 4th)

    Lions’ Goff sacked twice with game on line

    Detroit takes over at its own 25, trailing by 10, with 4:28 to go in the game.
