Detroit Lions Open as 7-Point Underdogs against Minnesota Vikings

The Detroit Lions will be home underdogs when they play the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday at Ford Field.

The Detroit Lions (0-10-1) will attempt to regroup this week, after a disappointing 16-14 loss to the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving. 

The Lions have opened as seven-point home underdogs against the Minnesota Vikings (5-6), according to SI Sportsbook.

The Vikings are coming off a 34-26 loss in Week 12 to the San Francisco 49ers

Back in Week 5, Detroit lost on the road, 19-17, in a game that saw kicker Greg Joseph launch a 54-yard kick to give his team the victory. 

Following the game, Campbell took the loss quite hard, as he held back tears when he spoke to the media to recap the tough loss. 

"We haven’t done it, so we’re still, we’re not quite there," Campbell said. "We haven’t quite got over the hump, but I do think in the long run, this is going to pay dividends for us. As ugly as it is right now and hard to swallow, I do think we’re building something special here that’s going to serve us well in the long term."
