Vikings return KO, punt for TD and top Lions 20-13
Question of the Day
The Lions got right back down in scoring territory and didn’t waste the opportunity with Stafford scoring on a 1-yard lunge, snapping the ball and extending it over the pile on a play that stood after video review with 2:56 left in the game.
Vikings punter Chris Kluwe pinned Detroit on its 2 with 1:42 left and no timeouts and the drive was extended when Stafford’s fumble was overturned by review — because he was down before losing the football — with 9 seconds left.
Minnesota took a quick 7-0 lead on Harvin’s kickoff return for a TD, starting toward the back left of the end zone, cutting across the field and sprinting up the sideline.
Pass interference penalties — two on Detroit rookie Bill Bentley trying to cover Simpson — set up the next three scores, all of which were field goals, and the Vikings led 13-3 midway through the second quarter.
Calvin Johnson had a shot to score late in the first half, but rookie safety Harrison Smith put a hit on him in the end zone that jarred the ball loose before Pettigrew dropped a potential TD to force Detroit to kick a field goal and settle for a 13-6 halftime deficit.
