Detroit Lions hold on to beat Vikings, clinch first NFC North title

With a victory over the Minnesota Vikings by a score of 30-24, the Detroit Lions were able to secure the No. 1 spot in the National Football Conference North and improve their record to 11-4. 

Despite the fact that the Vikings had a strong defense, the Lions were able to score thirty points,  

and Detroit's defense managed to pick off four passes throughout the game, including the pick that ultimately decided the outcome of the game.

The Lions were victorious in the coin toss and chose to receive the ball for the second consecutive game. Josh Reynolds made a gain of 16 yards on the very first play of the game, 

which was a great way for Detroit to get off to a good start. With a 10-yard rush two plays later, David Montgomery drove Detroit into territory that was previously occupied by the Vikings. 

On the subsequent third-and-five play, Jared Goff successfully avoided the pressure and connected with Amon-Ra St. Brown for a crucial conversion into field goal range.  

After that, Jameson Williams successfully made a catch and run, which put them in a predicament where they needed to score a touchdown. 

After another three plays, Montgomery scored a touchdown from one yard out, giving the Lions a 7-0 lead.
