Diggs, Bridgewater new hot combo
DETROIT — Teddy Bridgewater dropped back, lofted a long pass and Stefon Diggs did the rest.
Diggs leaped from just inside the 5 and landed in the end zone with a 36-yard, go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter, helping the Vikings rally to top the Lions.
"I thought it was going to be a little bit out of my reach," Diggs said. "So, I didn't try to run under it. Usually, I just try to run under it. I was just trying to lay out for it."
Diggs, a rookie, had six receptions for 108 yards.
Minnesota won an NFC North road game for the first time in three years, and Bridgewater gave second-year coach Mike Zimmer the game ball.
Detroit had an 11-point lead after Matthew Stafford threw for touchdowns on its first two drives, but Minnesota had a season-high seven sacks, also a season worst for Detroit.
