Week 9 in the National Football League , and that includes the big NFC North divisional tussle between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions at U.S. Bank Stadium. Let’s give you everything you need leading up to today’s game.Time: Sunday, 4 November, noon Central time (unless you forgot to set your clock back, then it’s 1:00 PM and you’ve probably missed the first quarter already)Location: U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MinnesotaTelevision coverage: KSTP-9 in the Twin Cities, FOX affiliates across the nation, DirecTV Ch 710Radio coverage: Vikings Radio Network, Sirius Channel 83, XM Channel 225Line: Minnesota -5, Over/under 48Prediction: Vikings 27, Lions 23Three keys1) Spread the wealth on offense - It doesn’t look like receiver Stefon Diggs is going to go today, so the pressure is going to be on everyone that’s lined up opposite of Adam Thielen. Whether it’s Laquon Treadwell Minnesota Vikings Customized Jerseys , Aldrick Robinson, or even Chad Beebe, the rest of the Vikings’ wide receiver corps is going to have to do what they can to take heat off of the NFL’s best receiver and keep the Vikings’ offense moving.2) Get pressure on Matthew Stafford - While the Lions have actually developed a bit of a running game this season, Stafford is still the key to their offense. The Lions’ offensive line has been among the best in the league in terms of not allowing pressure on the quarterback, but the Vikings are starting to get healthy again up front, and Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter should be able to get to Stafford in this one.3) Win on special teams - This one goes without saying. If this one comes down to a Detroit field goal, you know that Matt Prater is going to make it, because that’s just what he does to the Vikings. Minnesota is the more talented team on paper in this one, and they don’t need to give their opponents extra chances and short fields.Know the Foe: Pride of DetroitTwitter: Right hereFaceBook: by DailyNorseman We will keep rolling out the new Open Threads at the start of every quarter, ladies and gentlemen, so keep an eye out for those. Other than that, let’s enjoy today’s game and hopefully we can all meet back here just after 3:00 PM Central to celebrate a Minnesota Vikings victory.SKOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL VIKINGS!!!! On Wednesday, the Minnesota Vikings resumed practicing in preparation for their game on Sunday in Philadelphia. A couple of pretty significant players found themselves on the sideline during Wednesday’s festivities.Running back Dalvin Cook and running back Trae Waynes sat out of Wednesday’s practice. Cook is still nursing the hamstring injury that he suffered in Week 2 and left him on a “pitch count” against the Rams last Thursday Minnesota Vikings T-Shirts , while Waynes is apparently dealing with the effects of a concussion suffered during that loss in Los Angeles.Waynes will have to pass the concussion protocol in order to get back onto the field by Sunday, but it still remains to be seen whether or not Cook will be able to take the field against what is, right now, the best run defense in the NFL. The Vikings’ rush offense is currently the NFL’s worst, so any spark that Cook could potentially provide would be welcomed.Several Vikings were limited participants in Wednesday’s practice, including defensive tackle Linval Joseph (shoulder), defensive end Tashawn Bower (ankle), and punt returner Marcus Sherels (ribs). Sherels has missed the last two games for the Vikings, with rookie Mike Hughes handling punt returns in his absence.We will be keeping an eye on all of the Vikings’ injuries, especially those to Waynes and Cook, leading up to the final injury reports being released on Friday. However, it hasn’t gotten off to a good start for either of those two players this week.
