Vikings vs Lions | The Final Score

Funny how throwing the ball to Adam Thielen, KJ Osborn, and even CJ Ham works. LOL. Dalvin Cook performed well too until Alexander Mattison had to replace him. Oh, what a manly run by him to score. Then don’t knock the comeback version of Kirk Cousins either. All this and more as the Vikings win 28-24 in The Final Score. SKOL!

Your Minnesota Vikings are back home in the loving embrace of US Bank Stadium to play the Detroit Lions in this NFC North matchup. Will the Vikings bounce back after Monday’s loss today? Yes. Has coach Kevin O’Connell looked at what went wrong and how to fix it? He did, at least some of it. Will he learn lessons from watching not only that game but both Lions' games to date? Starting to. Will he have Kirk Cousins playing with the calm mind he has talked about? When it counted. Will Dalvin Cook and Adam Thielen get the ball more? They did. All these questions and more are to be answered on Climbing The Pocket’s The Final Score going live at the final 2-minute warning.
