Six steps for Lions to beat Vikings on Sunday
How the Lions can beat the Vikings on Sunday:
-- Get the ball to Calvin Johnson.
-- But don’t forget Jahvid Best.
-- Pressure Brett Favre early and often.
-- Pay no attention to the wacko Vikings fans and the ultra-noisy Metrodome.
-- Go to work, no miscommunication, no mistakes.
-- Just play.
Sounds like a sneaker commercial. It should be the plan for the Lions. This is a game they can win. Yes, it’s on the road, but these are not the same old Lions. This is a bunch of guys who should refuse to see the start of the season spiral down the drain. I don’t think that losing would be acceptable to the captains -- Kyle Vanden Bosch, Dominic Raiola, Matthew Stafford and Jason Hanson. Or anyone else on the roster.
