    Offense struggles to find end zone


    Detroit News contributor Nolan Bianchi offers his first-half observations as the Lions take on the Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium.

    Offense continues to struggle

    After losing two fumbles to the Chicago Bears a week ago, it’s fair to say that Jared Goff needs to do a better job of securing the football. He’s now lost four fumbles on the season, which has to be disappointing, because moving the ball hasn’t really been an issue; securing it until points are on the board has.

    Lions quarterback Jared Goff (16) fumbles the ball as he is hit by Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter (99) and defensive end Everson Griffen (97) during the first half Sunday.

    The Lions’ offensive line — which is missing Frank Ragnow — hasn’t been much help today, though, as Penei Sewell continued to flash some growing pains early on. The rookie tackle was beat badly by Everson Griffen on the Lions opening drive for a sack, then again on the next play as the Vikings strip-sacked Goff to force a turnover that’d give Minnesota its first lead.
