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

In progress: Lions looking to regain first-quarter lead
It’s first-and-10 at the 25 for the Lions.
Jared Goff’s first-down pass to Jamaal Williams is caught for 4, and his second-down handoff to D’Andre Swift goes for 1.
Vikings tie game at 3 with field goal on first series
Vikings take over at the 25, trailing 3-0 early in the first quarter.
After a first-down incompletion, Alexander Mattison rushes for 4. Kirk Cousins looks for Justin Jefferson over the top on third down, it’s defended well, and Jefferson just makes a big-league catch over Amani Oruwariye that’s good for 37 yards to the Detroit 34.
Cousins’ next pass goes off the hands of his receiver and falls incomplete. Mattison is dropped for a loss of 2 on second down. Cousins goes back to Jefferson on third-and-12, and the throw is once again on the money for a 14-yard pickup. First-and-10 at the 22.
Mattison again takes a 2-yard loss, then catches a pass out of the backfield that goes for a gain of 4 to bring up third-and-8. Cousins’ third-down pass to the end zone skips off the ground and into the hands of his receiver, incomplete.
Greg Joseph makes a 38-yard field goal to tie the game.
Lions 3, Vikings 3 (6:30 1st)
Lions take 3-0 lead on opening drive
The Lions will start with the ball, taking over at the 25.
After a 2-yard run by Jamaal Williams, Jared Goff hits D’Andre Swift for a gain of 10 to the 37.
T.J. Hockenson hauls in a 8-yard pass on the next play. Williams moves the chains with a 3-yard carry to the Detroit 48, bringing up first-and-10.
D’Andre Swift cuts through the field for a 12-yard pickup into Vikings territory.
Goff’s next throw is into the dirt, but there’s an illegal contact penalty on the Vikings, so it’ll be first-and-10 at the 35.
Goff hits Quintez Cephus near the sideline, and he finds a way to stay in-bounds and cut upfield for a pickup of 13 yards. The Lions offense is moving.
A throw to Amon-Ra St. Brown is caught out of bounds, and that’ll be Goff’s first incompletion on the day. A 1-yard run by Williams brings up third-and-9: A third-down throw to the sideline is knocked away by Patrick Peterson.
Austin Seibert puts home the 39-yard field goal.
Lions 3, Vikings 0 (10:34 1st)
