That might be one of the better technique plays we've seen Mackensie Alexander make. Picked up Golladay, had tight coverage on his man and turned to locate the ball at exactly the right time. Big breakup to stall the Lions' drive.
The #Vikings offense has come crashing back to earth here in the first quarter, which saw Kirk Cousins and company gain 10 yards in nine plays and punt three times without a first down. It's still 3-0, Lions.

Interesting: #Lions under ex-Patriots DC Matt Patricia have used some similar third-down looks as New England vs. #Vikings with one down DL and roving LBs at line of scrimmage. Minnesota was 3 of 12 vs. Pats on third downs. They're 0 of 2 so far today.
One more time before we get to the football: My story on the #Vikings ' new social justice program. The Wilfs committed $250K to the effort, driven by players to serve minority communities and promote positive relationships across racial lines: strib.mn/2SfQcBZ
Rookie DT Jalyn Holmes is active for his fifth career game, and his first since the Nov. 4 game against the Lions. #Vikings have five DTs up vs. a Lions offense that averaged 28.5 runs in past two games.
