It writes: "This Detroit squad is gonna be a tough out every week. They gave the Eagles a ton of trouble in Week 1 and impressed in Week 2 in beating Washington. The Vikings don’t play until Monday, but I’m happy to get the helpful hook on this one."

Adam Taylor McKillop writes: "It's hard not to like the Vikings' offense with Justin Jefferson leading the way. Minnesota's MNF contest will be telling, especially against a Philadelphia Eagles team that barely scraped by Detroit in Week 1. I expect the Lions to keep this close, even on the road."

Dave Birkett writes: " Take the over on Justin Jefferson receiving yards for this game (1 p.m. on Fox) — whatever it is."
