Detroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings: Second quarter recap and third quarter discussion

We’ve reached halftime in Minneapolis with your Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions tied at 14-14.

The Lions started the quarter with a football and a 4th-and-1 from the Minnesota 31-yard line. For the third time this afternoon, Detroit went for it on fourth down and for the third time they converted on a pass from Jared Goff to Josh Reynolds to the Minnesota 14. A few plays later, the Lions scored again on a 5-yard pass from Goff to T.J. Hockenson to increase their lead to 14-0.

The Vikings finally got an answer midway through the second quarter, as Kirk Cousins found Adam Thielen in the end zone for a 1-yard touchdown!
