Defense delivers as Vikings sail past Lions 20-7

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota's long-dominant defense had been slipping for the past several weeks, a proud and seasoned group that needed to get its edge back.

The Vikings gave hardly any ground against the sputtering Detroit Lions.

Danielle Hunter had three of Minnesota's five sacks to spearhead a resurgence by the defense, and the Vikings sailed past Detroit 20-7 on Sunday to stick the Lions with their sixth straight loss.
