Wednesday September 16th, 2015

Both Detroit and Minnesota suffered Week 1 losses and will look to bounce back Sunday in an early-season divisional matchup in Minneapolis.

The Lions fell to the Chargers 33–28 in their season opener after being torched for 400 yards through the air by Philip Rivers. Matthew Stafford threw for 246 yards, two touchdowns and two picks, while rookie Ameer Abdullah had a solid debut, recording 50 yards and a touchdown on just seven carries. A big game from Calvin Johnson would go a long way this weekend, after he had just two catches and was targeted only four times.

Minnesota struggled to get any offense going against San Francisco in its 20–3 loss, with star running back Adrian Peterson managing just 31 rushing yards and Teddy Bridgewater throwing a pick and no touchdowns. Carlos Hyde wrecked Minnesota on the ground for 168 yards and two touchdowns. The Vikings will need a stouter defensive showing of their own and to take advantage of the Lions' defensive struggles.
