After strong Blough debut, Vikes say 'whoa' in win vs. Lions

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The first three plays for David Blough and the Detroit Lions on Sunday were an ominous sign. The rookie quarterback's first two passes were deflected at the line of scrimmage. Then he was sacked for a 6-yard loss.

The Minnesota Vikings made sure there would be no repeat of Blough's strong Thanksgiving Day debut.

In Blough's first NFL road start, the Lions sputtered toward their sixth straight loss, 20-7 to the Vikings. They failed to score until 2:09 remained in the game. Blough finished 24 of 40 for 205 yards, taking five sacks and throwing two interceptions. His late touchdown pass to Kenny Golladay kept Detroit from being shut out for the first time since 2009.
