The Detroit Lions used a walk-off, game-winning touchdown on Sunday to defeat the Minnesota Vikings by a score of 29-27 at Ford Field.
But according to the good folks at FiveThirtyEight, the Lions win over the Vikings was nearly impossible.
“… you may be shocked to find out that the Vikings lost a game that’s almost impossible to lose. They’re just the second team EVER to lose as at least a 7-point favorite, while winning the turnover battle and with a quarterback whose passer rating was at least 110. And the other team, the 2013 Eagles, allowed the Chargers to go 10-for-15 on third down — the Vikings allowed the Lions to go only 2-for-11. Just a stunning loss.”
