new england patriots 26 vs minnesota vikings 33
In the final Thanksgiving game, The Vikings look to return to form after an embarrassing loss as they host the Patriots who have won 3 straight.
The phrase “all good things must come to an end” rings true as the Vikings had their 7 game win streak snapped by a 40-3 routing by the Cowboys. Minnesota was not able to score after the first quarter with Kirk Cousins only having 105 passing yards before getting benched late in the game. Besides their last game, the Vikings season has been a great success story. Third year all-pro receiver Justin Jefferson has been on a tear, already racking up 1,000 yards on the season, and he will look to get the Vikings back on track in week 12.
The Patriots will look to extend their winning streak to 4 as they take a 6-4 record into Minnesota. The Patriots have been carried by their defense as of late. During their win streak, the defense has allowed an average of only 7.6 points per game while only allowing 6 points total in their last 2 contests. With the return of Damien Harris, the Pats have a deadly two man committee with Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson. On the Defensive side, Matthew Judon continues his greatness with a league leading 13 sacks.
