Things quickly went from good to bad to worse for the Vikings in the third quarter today against the Lions.
After Minnesota had jumped out to a 7-3 lead in the third quarter, Detroit cut it to 7-6 with a field goal. On the Vikings’ ensuing possession, it went bad.
Vikings running back Dalvin Cook took a handoff, appeared headed toward a big gain, but then got hit just as he was cutting. Cook’s knee buckled and he fumbled, and the Lions recovered.
Detroit now leads 14-7, and Minnesota is holding its breath about Cook.
