MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The games have been lurking at the end of Detroit’s schedule like a difficult end-of-semester final exam, two games against Minnesota in the last three weeks that ought to show just how far these on-the-rise Lions have progressed. Despite a three-game lead on the Vikings in the NFC North with three games to play, the franchise’s first division title in 30 years is far from secured. The biggest test for the Lions (10-4) this season will come Sunday at Minnesota, where they haven’t won in six years. The fact the Vikings (7-7) are still in contention to defend the NFC North they ran away with last season has been a testament to coaching and chemistry, having lost quarterback Kirk Cousins nearly two months ago to a torn Achilles tendon and turned to three other starters since. Nick Mullens has the reins now, with a finally healthy Justin Jefferson leading his receiver crew after a severe hamstring strain sidelined him for five games and a chest injury kept him out for most of a sixth. The Lions just need to win once more to take the division and get their first home playoff game at Ford Field, which opened in 2002. But sandwiched in between the two matchups with Minnesota is a daunting Dec. 30 game at Dallas (10-4), which is busy trying to win its own division. The Vikings host Green Bay (6-8) in between the games against the Lions. “We don’t carry the weight of the last 30 years here. We don’t. It’s the 2023 Lions, and we’re different than last year’s team and the year before and 30 years before that,” Jared Goff said. “So we’re trying to make our mark this year, and we have a chance to do it this week.”
