    The story of today’s game in Minnesota was simple: The Vikings brought a relentless pass rush on Matthew Stafford , and the Lions had no answer.Stafford was sacked a career-high 10 times, as the Lions’ offensive line struggled to give him time and Stafford struggled to find anyone open when he did have time. The Lions traded away their leading receiver, Golden Tate, last week, and Stafford appeared to miss him. Detroit’s offense was never really in sync, and when Stafford attempted to pitch the ball to Kerryon Johnson in the fourth quarter, only to have the unsuspecting Johnson fail to corral it and the Vikings pick up the fumble and score Teez Tabor Jersey White , that sealed Detroit’s loss.Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins was far from great, and he threw one very ugly interception, but he didn’t have to do much on a day when the Lions’ offense couldn’t do anything. The Vikings’ offense appeared to miss the injured wide receiver Stefon Diggs, and Adam Thielen‘s streak of consecutive 100-yard receiving games came to an end as he only had 22 receiving yards.Minnesota’s 24-9 win improves the Vikings’ record to 5-3-1, and they’re doing their best to keep pace with the Bears in the NFC North race. The Lions fall to 3-5, and they appear to be heading toward last place.

EDTShareTweetShareShareIt turns out some players DO want to play for Matt PatriciaSteve Mitchell-USA TODAY SportsA few days ago Jake Rudock Jersey , Sports Illustrated released the results of an interesting survey. They asked NFL agents to give their top five and bottom five free agency destinations based on how they perceive their clients’ preferences. The Detroit Lions finished in the bottom five, but particularly embarrassing was a quote from one anonymous agent.Mix that in with the constant rumors that players were unhappy in Patricia’s first year as a head coach, and people understandably wondered if the Lions would have trouble attracting talented players to Detroit. For example, here’s what the Detroit Free Press’ Dave Birkett wrote about some of the prevailing rumors being pushed around at the NFL Combine a few weeks ago:Obviously, the Lions were able to rope in a bunch of pretty high-profile free agents in the first wave of free agency. And while you can certainly argue that they had to overpay to get some of this talent to Detroit, it’d be hard to argue that Matt Patricia was a roadblock in negotiations after hearing the players speak.In fact, all three of the Lions’ new additions—Trey Flowers Matt Prater Jersey White , Justin Coleman and Jesse James—mentioned Patricia as one of the reasons they signed with Detroit.With Flowers and Coleman, the fit was obvious. They both had direct experience with Patricia while with the Patriots and are comfortable within his defensive scheme.“Familiarity was definitely one of the things that I had on my mind,” Flowers told Tori Petry on Thursday. “Knowing that I understand the style and techniques and things that he coaches and he prides himself on. So just being able to reunite with someone that you’re familiar with that knows your strengths, your weaknesses and can definitely take your game to the next level. So I would say he had a pretty a significant role.” “Playing with him, I know he’s got a little edge,” Coleman told Petry. “The fact that he has that edge, you can bring it to the game and bring that same mentality just to have a little edge over someone else.” But perhaps what was most interesting was what tight end Jesse James had to say about Patricia. James was the only one of the trio with no previous experience playing under Patricia Trey Flowers Jersey White , so he had to ask some friends what they thought of the Lions coach.“I have some relationships with guys who have played for him before in the past that spoke so highly of him that it really drew me to Detroit,” James said in his introductory press conference. “I just think he’s the right guy to lead us on the path to be able to get some playoff success and win a Super Bowl.” Of course, none of this disproves that there may be some players that are off-put by Patricia’s demeanor and tactics. There very well may be some free agents that scoffed at Detroit’s offers. But if the Lions were able to draw these three free agents, and all three pegged Patricia as a reason why they chose Detroit, then it looks like this may be another overblown issue.
