#Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle), TE T.J. Hockenson (hip), C Frank Ragnow (foot) and DE Aidan Hutchinson (thigh) – all listed as questionable – will play today at Minnesota, per sources. Expect a bigger role for Swift, who had seven touches last week for 87 yards and a TD.

Crowd bit on that play-fake, started celebrating a handoff/stop to Craig Reynolds, Goff had the ball and hit Reynolds on a crosser
Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown is being looked at by trainers on the sidelines. I am not well.
Swift (ankle) is listed as questionable, but he's expected to play Sunday against the Vikings, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Swift played through the same injury last week, handling 51 percent of the offensive snaps but only seven touches in a win over Washington. However, he made the most of his opportunities with 87 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown. Coach Dan Campbell said Wednesday that Swift was much healthier than he'd been at the same time the previous week, so the running back seems likely to see an uptick in his workload against Minnesota after being used sparingly in Week 2.
Ballgame. Dan Campbell gave his team the lead with aggressive decision making, then put his team in a spot it could not overcome with that FG attempt

The Minnesota Vikings beat the Detroit Lions by a score of 28-24 in a crazy game that felt like the Vikings were trying to blow it.
The game started out with both teams missing field goals on their opening drive and the Lions jumped out to a 14-0 lead.
Amon-Ra St. Brown and D.J. Chark were getting open early and often helping the Lions convert three fourth downs in the first half. They ended up going 4-6 on fourth downs in the game.
The much-maligned quarterback Jared Goff was the better signal-caller on the day looking confident and accurate in the pocket and making plays on the move. He finished the game 25-for-41 for 277 yards, a touchdown and the game-ending interception on a hail mary-type pla
St. Brown recorded six receptions on nine targets for 73 yards in Sunday's 28-24 loss to the Vikings.
St. Brown tied for the team lead in receptions and set up a two-yard touchdown for Jamaal Williams with a 30-yard catch and run midway through the first quarter. He lacked some explosiveness on his catches for the rest of the game, and he told reporters after the game that he rolled his right ankle during the second quarter, per Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com. St. Brown expects to suit up for a Week 4 matchup against the Seahawks, but his status will be worth monitoring throughout the week.
D'Andre Swift wasn't using his left arm much in the locker room after the game, looked like he might have got treatment on his shoulder. And Josh Reynolds suffered a low ankle sprain. Lions offense can be really good, but also dealing with lots of injuries right now

so, I don't hate Dan Campbell's fourth down aggression -- didn't hate the spot they went for it and didn't get it the last time. However at some point, if you don't start letting Jack Fox do his thing to help Aaron Glenn more ... probably gonna hear about it.
The Detroit Lions final injury report from Week 3 listed four key players as questionable to play in Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. Lions fans, and some fantasy football owners, can breathe a little easier based on some information that came out early on Sunday.
Per Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, all four of the questionable Lions will suit up and play for the Lions against the Vikings. Tight end T.J. Hockenson, DE Aidan Hutchinson, center Frank Ragnow and RB D’Andre Swift are expected to be in the lineup according to the NFL.com insider. Pelissero added to “expect a bigger role” from Swift, who received just five carries in the Week 2 win over Washington
Vikings' RB Dalvin Cook now has been ruled out of today's game due to a shoulder injury.

Sprinkle these three same-game parlays in Week 3, writes Judah Fortgang, who has back-to-back SGP hits and loves the Justin Jefferson-Kirk Cousins duo Sunday vs. Detroit's man-heavy defense.
The Minnesota Vikings are ready to take on the Detroit Lions on Sunday afternoon and nobody is more ready than wide receiver Adam Thielen.
Before each game, players can choose to wear whatever they want while they go through pregame warm-ups. One of the ways that players choose to express themselves is by wearing custom cleats.
Thielen has been known to have some creative cleats. Last week against the Eagles, he wore custom Italian Stallion Rocky Balboa cleats and he took it one step further this week with a picture of the original 3-deep
Greg Joseph would've had the right line on a dogwood right, but not the field goal from center cut.

#Vikings LB Eric Kendricks, listed as questionable with a toe that got stepped on, will play today against the #Lions, per source. First-round pick Lewis Cine and Josh Metellus will split snaps in place of S Harrison Smith, who's out with a concussion.
Vikings' plan was to use both Josh Metellus and Lewis Cine in place of Harrison Smith today. In the end, Metellus played all 76 defensive snaps. Cine played 15 snaps on special teams but none on defense, per @ESPNStatsInfo player participation tracking. twitter.com/LewisCine/stat…
Josh Metellus picks it off, and the #Vikings will head to London 2-1. Wild win over the Lions.
K.J. Osborn beat former Vikings cornerback Mike Hughes for 28 yards on the deep crosser. Vikings on the Lions' 28 with 50 seconds to go.
Postgame thread starting here with Vikings coach Kevin O'Connell saying this of his mindset before the final drive: "I wanted to score. I wanted to score a touchdown. I wanted to win this football game in front of our fans, in regulation, and put maximum pressure on those guys."

First half ends with a 14-14 tie; the Vikings were arguing a Lions player knocked the ball out of Garrett Bradbury's hand while he was trying to get it to an official in time to set the snap so Cousins could spike it. Kevin O'Connell came out to argue, to no avail.
