Detroit Lions

by -

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings got their second divisional road win since 2009 Sunday afternoon at Ford Field, rebounding from a slow start to top the Motor City Kitties 28-19. The Zimmer Hellfire Defense sacked Matthew Stafford seven times en route to a 2nd half defensive shutout as the Purple roll to 4-2 and hope to catch playoff momentum as we barrel along the 2015 campaign.

It seems odd that it’s only Week 7 and the Vikings are already facing the Lions for the second and last time of the 2015 season. After beating up on Matthew Stafford and defeating Detroit 26-16 in Minneapolis Week 2, Minnesota will look to shut out its division rivals on the road Sunday.

The Lions are coming off its first win of the 2015 season, having beat Chicago last week, and you can bet they’re feeling some momentum on their end. The Vikings should prepare to face a chippy team in a must-win situation.

Lets take a look at how the Vikings offensively line up against the Lions for their second meeting.

Thee Arif Hasan makes his weekly pitstop to talk about our Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings (3-2) and how we look to move two games above .500 in this 2015 season.

Topics include: Why Stefon Diggs is the greatest thing since sliced bread, how Harrison Smith is somehow still underrated nationally, how the cornerback room will shake out with Captain Munnerlyn balling and Josh Robinson coming off of PUP, and if Vikings fans should fear Matthew Stafford getting back to just throwing up YOLO balls to Megatron as the crux of their offense.

All that and other “The Twin Cities hottest club is SPY-SEE. This place has everything.” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are looking to get win cuatro of the 2015 campaign as they descend on Motown to take on the uno-and-five Detroit Motor City Kitties Sunday afternoon at Ford Field.

We welcome back friend of the show Michael Grey (WBBL Grand Rapids) to talk about the Purple and the Blue and who will suck less in the Week 7 throwdown. Topics include: Is Stefon Diggs Antonio Brown? (Not Yet), Matthew Stafford should just YOLO the ball to Megatron like he’s always done and if a banged up Lions defense can shut down Adrian (Loss of One) Peterson.

All that and other “Mike Williams is fat” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
