The Detroit Lions offense was not content to let the defense do all of the scoring against the Minnesota Vikings today. A Stephen Tulloch fumbled recovery gave Detroit an early lead. Matt Stafford and Titus Young added another touchdown to the lopsided score.
Stafford hit the speedy Young on the deep left side of the field to give the Lions their second touchdown of the game.

That was Young’s third touchdown of the season, and his longest one to date. Young has emerged a complementary deep threat for the Lions offense. A Boise State product, Young was a second pick by the Lions in this year’s draft.
That was Stafford’s 28th touchdown pass of the season. He added number 29 later in the first quarter with a touchdown pass to tight end Brandon Pettigrew.
A win today would keep the Lions in the Wild Card chase.
