Vikings At Lions Notes

November 24, 2016

Three pro pig games, at least one and a half too many, on a truly excessive, (I will stop there) holiday.

In the first, this one “set up” as the battle for first place in the NFC North, as both the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions are (6-4), 2 ahead of the disappointing G.B. Packers in that division.

Ah, but the Pack have won 4 Super Bowls, the Vikings are (0-4) in such games, never leading in one, while the Lions are the only one of the NFL teams formed before 1995, never to have made a Super Bowl.

“Minne,” which entered the league in 1961, has never won an “all the way” NFL crown (they won the last NFL title tilt in 1969, but lost the subsequent Supe to the AFL Kansas City Chiefs).

Detroit has won 4 NFL crowns, the last 59 years ago when they scored 59 points, in beating the Cleveland Browns, ending the great Jim Brown’s first season on a sour note.

Only the Sid Luckman led 1940 Chicago Bears in their legendary (73-0) win vs “Wash,” in the 1940 NFL title game, scored more points than the Lions’ 59, some 59 years ago in the 1957 title tilt.
