The Vikings are coming down to earth, and if the Lions win Sunday, they'll be the ones to punctuate the landing. Remember when we thought Detroit was a possible playoff team? The Lions are fighting to get there again. They've scored at least 28 points in their last two games, and you can hear them starting to click.
