Top Minnesota Vikings Rookies: Week 14 vs. the Detroit Lions

It may not have been exciting or all that pretty, but the Minnesota Vikings did what they needed to do and got a key victory against the Detroit Lions in Week 14 as they continue to battle for a playoff spot.

The Vikings offense was a little out of whack all day long, but the defense stepped up in a big way and carried the team after being part of the reason they lost to the Seattle Seahawks last week. Overall, it was a good team effort by Minnesota and both sides of the ball did enough to beat a hapless opponent at home.
