Vikings WR Sidney Rice racked up 201 more yards in Sunday’s 27-10 win over the Lions, giving him the NFC lead in receiving yards through nine games.
Benefiting from the absence of Lions top S Louis Delmas (tooth), Brett Favre shredded Detroit for a season-high 344 passing yards
in the victory.
The Lions benched
RB Aaron Brown, DE Cliff Avril, and DT Landon Cohen for Sunday’s game.
Some silver lining for Detroit: WR Calvin Johnson looked completely over his knee injury en route to eight catches for 84 yards
Lions CB Phillip Buchanon ran down Vikings RB Adrian Peterson
and forced him to fumble at the Detroit 18-yard line, allowing Lions LB Jordon Dizon to recover in the end zone for a touchback.
