STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - At final game in 32-year history of Metrodome, Lions coach Jim Schwartz and Vikings coach Leslie Frazier could be working last contests with team. ... Lions were eliminated last week from playoff contention with fifth loss in last six games. ... QB Matthew Stafford has NFL-most 14 turnovers (including 12 interceptions) over last six weeks for Lions. With 67 yards passing, he'll reach 4,500 for third straight year. ... Lions WR Calvin Johnson has 1,492 yards and 12 TDs receiving. He might not play to preserve health. ... With injured TE Brandon Pettigrew shut down for season, Lions TE Joseph Fauria will play more prominent role. He has seven TDs on 15 catches. ... LB De Andre Levy, who had interception in opener vs. Vikings, has six this year, tying Lions LB record with Joe Schmidt. ... Vikings will move to University of Minnesota stadium for next two seasons while new stadium is being built on site of Metrodome, which will be torn down next month. ... Vikings' defense 18 points allowed away from setting dubious franchise record for most in single season. ... DE Jared Allen could be playing final game with Vikings, with contract set to expire. He has 9 1/2 sacks, needing one-half to reach double digits for seventh straight year. DE Brian Robison has nine sacks. Last duo to get 10-plus sacks each was Kevin Williams and Lance Johnstone in 2004. ... WR Cordarrelle Patterson has TD in four straight games, first Vikings rookie to do so since Randy Moss closed 1998 season with scores in seven in row. ... Vikings RB Adrian Peterson third in NFL with 1,266 yards rushing, second-lowest total of seven-year career. With 124 yards he'd post his third-highest total.
