Eschewing (I love that word) a chance to take a field goal and go up by six in the fourth quarter, the Vikings opted to go for it on fourth and short inside the Detroit 20.

And the Vikings didn’t get it.

Making it harder was the decision of the Vikings not to give Adrian Peterson the chance to convert.  Instead, quarterback Donovan McNab handed off to Toby Gerhart.

And the Lions are driving.


UPDATE 3:47 p.m. ET:  It’s now tied up.  20-20.  Lead blown.
