Big D: Lions dominate Bridgewater, Vikings 17-3

Posted: Updated:
 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Tahir Whitehead intercepted Teddy Bridgewater twice, Joique Bell put the game away with a fourth-quarter touchdown run, and the Detroit Lions beat the Minnesota Vikings 17-3 on Sunday.

   With Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush missing, the Lions played a low-risk game and punted nearly as often as the Vikings did. But their defense made another case for top billing in the league. Ziggy Ansah had 2 1/2 of Detroit's eight sacks,

   Bridgewater threw three interceptions in his second career start for the Vikings (2-4).

   The biggest problem for Detroit was two more missed field goal attempts. Matt Prater did make one from 52 yards in his debut.

   The Lions (4-2) won at Minnesota for only the second time in their last 17 trips.
