Minnesota fans will not be thankful for Sam Bradford this Thanksgiving. Although the Vikings quarterback completed 84% of his passes Thursday, his interception with 38 seconds remaining in a 13-13 tie and the ball in their own territory handed the Lions a victory and the outright NFC North lead.
Here is the Bradford pick that set Detroit up in immediate field-goal range.
Detroit kicker Matt Prater came out with four seconds left for an easy 40-yarder to give the Lions the NFC North division lead and a season sweep over the Vikings, which is huge should the teams tie for the division title. Essentially, the Lions went from tied for the division to two games up solely on this interception and field goal.
After a 5-0 start, the Vikings have now lost five of their last six games and have to face the NFL-best Dallas Cowboys next week.
