The Minnesota Vikings are ten-point favorites against the Detroit Lions on Sunday at US Bank Stadium.

A win over Detroit drags Minnesota back to the center of the NFC North, assuming the team can continue successfully in Carolina through Week 6.

Also, here is the injury report: There is no Ihmir Smith-Marsette or Michael Pierce. Dalvin Cook is questionable.

And just before the Browns’ loss last week, Minnesota disabled these players: Kellen Mond (QB), Anthony Barr (LB), Ihmir Smith-Marsette (WR), Wyatt Davis (G), James Lynch (DT ), Patrick Jones II (DE) and Kris Boyd (CB).
