Lions fans vent, but defense wilts in 42-30 loss to Vikings

DETROIT (AP) The fans in Detroit booed the officials during the opening coin toss, then again when the game's first flag was thrown.

That turned out to be a penalty on Minnesota, but by the end of the fourth quarter, the crowd had plenty of other reasons to be annoyed.

The officials weren't the story of this game. The Lions lost because they couldn't stop Dalvin Cook, Stefon Diggs, Kirk Cousins and the rest of the Minnesota offense. The Vikings rolled up 503 yards in their 42-30 victory Sunday, handing Detroit its third straight loss.
