Thoughts halftime Lions, Vikings

- Can you imagine what this game would be like if Adrian Peterson were healthy? I think his impact would be more important than if Calvin Johnson were playing for the Lions given the I-75 eyes of Detroit's defense.
- I know the Vikings have won their last three games at home. It only points to how the Lions dropped the ball by losing three of their last four home games to Tampa Bay, Baltimore and the New York Giants. Two of those teams are well below .500. Even bad teams win at home in the NFL, and the Lions did not with a division title and a home playoff game on the line.
- Most of the veteran cornerbacks the Lions have picked up off the NFL's scrap heap down through the years have contributed very little. Rashean Mathis has been an exception. He has had a pretty good season.
- Seems like a no-brainer for the Lions to try to get the ball in the hands of Jeremy Ross. Yet, they just don't do it on plays from scrimmage. Amazing.
