By the numbers: Week 7

0: The Lions had zero sacks, turnovers, red zone stops and passes defended against the Vikings Sunday afternoon.

3.8: Detroit’s average yards per rush, which is tied for 21st in the NFL. Baltimore leads the league with 5.5 yards per rush.

4.9: Opponent average yards per rush, which is tied for fourth worst in the NFL behind Cincinnati (5.2), Cleveland (5.0) and Kansas City (5.0).

5-2: The record of the current sixth seed (Minnesota) in the NFC playoff race. At 2-3-1, the Lions have a lot of catching up to do with 10 games remaining. The NFC North leading Green Bay Packers are 6-1. Detroit faces them at Ford Field Week 17.

10: Detroit has 10 different players that have produced a total of 11 forced fumbles through six games.

26: The Lions' defense doesn’t rank better than 26th in any major statistical category on defense. They’re 26th in points allowed (26.7), 31st in total defense (428.7), 30th against the pass (289.5) and 28th against the run (139.2).

50: Safety Tracy Walker has 50 tackles through six games, the most a Lions defensive back has ever produced in the first six games of the season. The total also ties for the fifth most a Lions player has produced through six games.
