Takeaways from the Lions' 14-7 road win against the Vikings

"We lost as a team and we just need to get better", said cornerback Xavier Rhodes, who has a Stafford ball slip between his hands.

Cook scored Minnesota's lone touchdown and had 13 carries for 66 yards, along with an 8-yard reception, prior to his injury.

Week after week, this Lions defense continues to impress. More important, they showed they have the ability to bounce back after a close, controversial loss with a game in which they were good enough to win on the road.

The Lions hope to get healthy in time for next week's game against the Carolina Panthers in a match-up of 3-1 division leaders.

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook left Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions after falling to the ground suddenly during a run.

#Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said MIN is concerned that RB Dalvin Cook suffered an ACL injury. He is scheduled for an MRI. It was a far cry from his highlight reel work from last week, but better than we saw against the Steelers.

"They're stopping teams. They're getting the ball back for us".

The Lions have 11 takeaways this season and lead the National Football League with a plus-nine turnover margin.

Turkey wants summit with Iran and Iraq after Kurd vote: PM Yildirim
There was some opposition to the vote among non-Kurdish populations in disputed areas between the Kurdish and Iraqi governments. The director of Irbil airport, Talar Faiq Salih said humanitarian, military and diplomatic flights were excluded from the ban.

The Vikings (2-1) will have their opportunity for payback on Sunday when they host the Lions (2-1), the first of three consecutive NFC North foes.

It was Zettel's second sack of the game, capping a strong performance by the Lions defense, which included limiting the Vikings to under 300 yards of offense and forcing three turnovers. Detroit kicked a field goal to draw within 7-6.

It's an injury that a player can recover from and play again. There was just under two minutes remaining in the game and the Vikings were threatening to tie the score with one final drive. "Consistency is what I am looking for".

In the second quarter, Hunter had both of his sacks and also jumped up to bat a pass down at the line of scrimmage. Keenum's fourth-down pass was high and out of the back of the end zone. "Seven of those have been interceptions, which they had just 10 of all last season". "Anytime we play the Lions it's always been a good battle". But until Taylor Decker gets back, Detroit might have to sacrifice Ebron on some plays for the extra blocking Fells provides.

"Ahmad, you are one of the greatest Vikings of all time, " Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said while introducing Rashad to the crowd. "I thought the defensive guys, they played well".

Lions safety Tavon Wilson was credited for forcing the fumble, which Detroit converted into a touchdown to take a 14-7 lead. But after three more takeaways against the Vikings, they have 11 in the first four games of the season.

"Worried", defensive end Everson Griffen said.

Kicker Kai Forbath clanked an upright on a 39-yard attempt, his first missed field goal as a Viking to go along with a pair of botched extra points this season.
