Half-Time Report: Minnesota Vikings hold narrow lead over Detroit Lions

The Minnesota Vikings lead by four at the break against the Detroit Lions as the home side score 10 points in the final two minutes of half to reduce the deficit.

The Minnesota Vikings hold a narrow 14-10 lead over the Detroit Lions in their NFL clash at Ford Field thanks to touchdowns from Matt Asiata and Greg Jennings.

Both teams struggled to get going in the early stages of the first quarter, but it was the away side who found their offensive rhythm first as Teddy Bridgewater drove his side to the goal line where Asiata powered through the line for the touchdown.

The Vikings extended their lead in the second quarter when Jennings made an incredible catch off his toes on the sideline to keep his team's drive alive. He produced again for the visitors when he collected a pass from Bridgewater and found the endzone.

Bridgewater then committed a huge error when he was intercepted by Glover Quin, which allowed the Lions back into the game as Matt Stafford floated a pass to Golden Tate for a 10-yard score.

Another mistake from Bridgewater allowed the Lions to move within four points as he was picked off by Darius Slay, and Matt Prater was able to kick a field goal as time expired.
