The Minnesota Vikings improved to 9-2 with a 30-23 win over the Detroit Lions.
Former Buckeye linemen Pat Elflein (Vikings center) and Taylor Decker (Lions left tackle) performed their admirable, albeit under-the-radar work as both offenses had good games in the opening act of Thanksgiving Day Football.
The two former national champions swapped jerseys after the game.
Next week, the Lions will head to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. The Vikings will travel to Atlanta to battle the Falcons. The two teams will not meet again in the regular season, but could face off in the playoffs if things go according to plan.
