Kalli Hose scored her second

Jennifer Lupinski added the first

PONTIAC (AP) - The Detroit
Lions got two special teams touch-
downs and one from the defense in a
31-17 victory over the Minnesota
Vikings. Detroit extended its win-
ning streak to 11 games in the
Silverdome and handed Dennis
Green his first loss as coach of the
Detroit's Mel Gray scored on a
58-yard punt return, Melvin Jenkins
on a 56-yard return of a blocked
field goal and Jerry Ball returned a
fumble 21 yards for a touchdown.
Rodney Peete threw a 16-yard
TD pass to Willie Green and Jason
Hanson kicked a 35-yard field goal
for Detroit.
The Vikings didn't manage a
touchddown until the fourth quarter,
when Terry Allen scored on a 3-yard
run and Anthony Carter caught an
11-yard scoring pass from Rich

Gray fielded Harry Newsome's
punt at the 42 and veered right
through a gap in Minnesota's cover-
age. Gray shook a tackle by New-
some at the 25, got a block from
Sheldon White at the 15 and broke-
another tackle inside the 10 before,
stumbling into the end zone.
The Vikings got a 52-yard field
goal by Fuad Reveiz on the fourth
snap of the second quarter. On their
next possession, the Vikings were at
the Lions' 24, where Reveiz at-
tempted a 40-yard field goal. Marc
Spindler blocked it and Jenkins
scooped up the loose ball and raced
56 yards for the score.
On the first play of the third
quarter, Allen fumbled after getting
sandwiched by Detroit's Michael
Cofer and Kelvin Pritchett. Ball, the
rotund nose guard, grabbed the fum-
ble and rumbled for the score.
