    Vikings recover from Lions rally, 19-17, with walk-off FG

    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

    Vikings walkoff Lions with field goal

    The Lions kick it deep, and it’s returned by Ameer Abdullah to the 18. With 2:30 left, the Lions have one timeout and the two-minute warning at their disposal.

    Alexander Mattison rushes for 2 yards on first down.

    Timeout #3 Detroit (2:23 4th)

    C.J. Ham is stuffed for a yard on second down. Biggest play of the game coming up next.

    Two-minute warning.

    The Lions wrap up Mattison for no gain on third down — or so it appears. Jalen Reeves-Maybin stripped the ball out before Mattison got to the ground, and they now have it at the Minnesota 20 with 1:56 to go.

    Vikings 16, Lions 9 (1:56 4th)

    D’Andre Swift rushes for 3 yards on first down. Jared Goff hits Amon-Ra St. Brown, then hands to Swift for a Detroit Lions touchdown. You simply cannot write this stuff folks.
