Minnesota had a two-game win streak and three-game ATS cover streak snapped with a 34-26 loss at the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12.
The Vikings failed to cover the spread as 4-point underdogs. They surrendered 423 total yards, including 208 on the ground. It was tied 14-14 at halftime before the 49ers scored the first two touchdowns of the third quarter. The second score was aided by a QB Kirk Cousins interception returned 24 yards to the Minnesota 2-yard line.
Detroit lost to the Chicago Bears 16-14 Thanksgiving Day but covered as a 2.5-point home underdog for its third cover in a row. The Lions led 14-13 late in the third quarter after QB Jared Goff hit TE T.J. Hockenson for a 17-yard touchdown pass. But the Bears produced an 18-play, 69-yard drive in the final 8:30 and kicked a game-winning, 28-yard field goal as time expired.
RB D'Andre Swift, who leads the Lions in rushing yards (555) and rushing TDs (4), exited in the second quarter with a shoulder injury and is considered day-to-day.
