Latavius Murray's 46-yard run to open the second half is the third longest rush of his career, and his longest since joining the Vikings. The last time he had a longer run was in 2015 against the Browns (54 yards) when he was playing for the Raiders.

Don't know how much Dwight Freeney will help the Detroit Lions run defense when he starts playing, but the Lions can't be doing much worse right now. Minnesota had four plays on the first drive of the second half. All four were runs. Result. Big gains and a touchdown. While the Lions might not give up 200 yards rushing again Thursday (it's still possible), the Detroit run defense is a major, major, major problem.

How about 48 yards and touchdown to start up the second half for Latavius Murray? That'll work.

Los linieros de Cowboys La'el Collins, Travis Frederick y Zack Martin salieron a cachar pases como siempre hacen antes de cada juego. Collins está cuestionable por molestias en la espalda. Esta semana Byron Bell tuvo repeticiones con titulares en su lugar.

The same Lions issues that have been problematic in wins over Chicago and Cleveland have showed up for Detroit. The Lions have struggled with quarterbacks running -- in this case, Case Keenum outrushed all of the Lions in the first half, 24-23. Detroit has been unable to run the ball and fell behind, again, by double digits. While the formula has worked for the Lions against Chicago and Cleveland, Minnesota is one of the more potent teams in the league and are much more difficult to come back on. It hasn't helped Matthew Stafford has been inaccurate for much of the day, completing only 5 of 11 passes to receivers not named Marvin Jones. Detroit needs a better run defense and a better Stafford in the second half.

Case Keenum established an early rhythm in the passing game, going 6-of-9 on passes of 10 yards or more downfield for 108 yards and a touchdown. Matthew Stafford is 1-of-5 on those same throws for 23 yards and no touchdowns.

Marvin Jones caught a late first half TD on an inside smash route in the deep red zone. That put Jones at 50 yards receiving on four receptions.

Courtney Cronin ESPN Staff Writer 

In arguably the best half of football he's played this season, I can't count one pass Case Keenum would have wanted back. He's been excellent at sensing pressure and scrambling to keep drives alive. Keenum has four passing touchdowns under duress this season, according to ESPN Stats and Information. Prior to 2017 he had two career passing TDs under duress.

Rishard Matthews was a limited participant in practice Thursday with a hamstring injury.

At the half, Vikings QB Case Keenum has completed 14-of-18 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns. And he's also rushed for 23 yards with another score.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not practice Thursday, along with RB Mike Tolbert (hamstring), LT Cordy Glenn (foot/ankle) and G John Miller (ankle). Tolbert was downgraded after being limited in Wednesday's practice.
