All of the sharps predicted an improvement from the Lions and a decline from the Vikings, to the point where the Lions were 5 point favorites week 1 and had a higher over/under win total. The Lions’ 10 point victory over the Vikings is making those sharps look pretty smart. The Vikings simply cannot rely on Adrian Peterson to rush for 2000 yards again. He looked great on his first carry from scrimmage week 1, taking it to the house for 78 yards, but he gained just 15 yards on his other 17 carries. 93 rushing yards total isn’t bad, but he surpassed that 10 times last season.
