Darius Slay was the hero in Detroit.
Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford was intercepted by Lions defensive back Darius Slay on a 3rd-and-7 late in the fourth quarter to set up a Detroit game-winning field goal on Thanksgiving.
Minnesota decided to go through the air deep in their own territory with the score tied at 13–13, which proved to be costly. The Lions were able to position the ball in the middle of the field, handing the reigns to kicker Matt Prater to win the game.
Bradford finished 31 of 37 for 224 yards and the interception.
Minnesota falls to 6–5, while Detroit improves to 7–4 with the home win.
