 DETROIT (AP) -- Matt Prater's 33-yard field goal with 3:38 remaining lifted Detroit to a 16-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, pulling the Lions into a tie for first place in the NFC North.

   The Lions (10-4) are now even atop the division with Green Bay, which lost to Buffalo earlier in the day, but Detroit didn't have an easy time, spotting the Vikings (6-8) a 14-0 lead before a pair of second-quarter interceptions helped the Lions start their rally.

   Even at the end, Detroit had to sweat out a 68-yard field goal attempt by Minnesota's Blair Walsh on the game's final play. The kick was short.
