(Detroit, MI) — Jared Goff and Kirk Cousins each put up monster numbers but it was the Lions that surged past the Vikings 34-23. Goff was 27 of 39 for 330 yards through the air and threw three T-D passes as the Lions thwarted the Vikings effort to clinch the N-F-C North. The Vikings suffered the loss despite Cousins throwing for 425 yards – 223 of which went to Justin Jefferson, setting the franchise record on 11 catches. The Vikings fall to 10-3 as their two game win streak is halted. The Lions, who’ve won five of six, improve to 6-7. The Vikings are home against the Colts next Saturday at noon with another chance to clinch the division with a win or tie.
