Josh Robinson sums up Vikings' physical beatdown of Lions in one suplex tackle
Josh Robinson suplexed Nate Burleson on Sunday, which is a great microcosmic view of what the Vikings are doing to the Lions in Week 4.
The Vikings are currently dominating the Lions, leading 20-6 early in the second half. This game is far from over, because Calvin Johnson is not actually a human being and Matthew Stafford can throw the ball very far.
But Minnesota holding on would hardly be surprising, as they've looked extremely impressive so far. It doesn't hurt to have a Percy Harvin touchdown return on the opening kickoff and a Marcus Sherels punt-return touchdown, either.
That's a literal suplex, which is both legal and spectacular. It's also indicative of how the Vikings have played for the last two weeks, getting extremely physical with the 49ers in their stunning upset victory last week and hammering the Lions so far in Week 4.
The transformation of Minnesota, a three-win team last season, is borderline shocking, considering how quick it happened, and that doesn't even touch on Christian Ponder's continued improvement this season.
Detroit nearly up-ended the NFC North in 2011, and 2012 might very well be the Vikings' turn. No one saw coming.
