(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- The Minnesota Vikings have not quite clinched the NFC North title. But by all appearances, their division opponents can forget about catching them.

The Vikings extended their winning streak to seven games with a 30-23 victory over the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day at Ford Field. Minnesota (9-2) opened up a three-game lead in the NFC North with five games remaining.

"I like this football team," coach Mike Zimmer said. "They're a bunch of fighters. They compete. When things go bad, they don't panic."
