What Frazier had better remember on Cook is that he was lit up by Johnson for 6 receptions, 165 yards and 2 TDs in a 2006 ACC showdown that was won by Georgia Tech 24-7.

The Lions dramatically upgraded their linebackers with talent and speed. That, coupled with an outstanding front four, will help them control Adrian Peterson and keep feeding the ball back to QB Matthew Stafford and a passing attack that could overwhelm the Vikings secondary. Stafford (seven TD passes in two games) isn’t afraid to attack safeties deep. Lions 24, Vikings 21

Hanson, 41, is the club’s all-time scoring leader with 1,911 points after he grabbed the baton from Eddie Murray in 1992. Detroit has had two kickers since 1980. The Vikings have employed 12 since Hanson entered the league.

The Pioneer Press checked in with the omnipresent Hanson this week as the undefeated Lions prepared to play the Vikings on Sunday at the Metrodome.

Right tackle Gosder Cherilus was benched for most of the game against Kansas City after he made a late mental error that could have cost his team the opener at Tamp Bay.

But it appears all is forgiven and that Cherilus is back on track to start Sunday’s game at Minnesota.
