Special teams, defense key as Vikings top Lions

Posted: Updated:

Percy Harvin returned the opening kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown and Marcus Sherels scored on a punt return early in the third, helping the Minnesota Vikings beat the Detroit Lions 20-13 Sunday.

NFC North-leading Minnesota (3-1) matched the number of wins it had last season. The Vikings also snapped an 11-game losing streak within the division.

The Lions (1-3) have lost three straight, surpassing the longest skid by last year's playoff team.

Detroit has struggled with poor coverage on special teams.
