New England Patriots at Minnesota Vikings: Predictions, picks and odds for NFL Week 12 matchup

The Minnesota Vikings (8-2) welcome the New England Patriots (6-4) to U.S. Bank Stadium on Thursday night. It will be the 14th meeting between the teams and the first Thanksgiving game.

The Vikings look to rebound after a disappointing loss last week. A quick turnaround is needed against the sizzling Patriots. However, it could be a difficult challenge. New England is on a three-game winning streak and has allowed just six points in its last two games.

The Patriots own a 9-4 record in the series. The Vikings have lost five consecutive games against the Patriots, with their last victory during the 2000 season.

Minnesota showed it may not be the dominant contender its record had indicated, but this should be a chance for a bounceback. Still, Kirk Cousins’ historically deficient performance in primetime bears concern here, but the Patriots offense is still far too unreliable to back in this spot.

The Vikings had a huge letdown at home last week against the Cowboys, but there’s no better remedy than playing four days later. They’ll take care of the Patriots, who needed to return a punt for a touchdown to get past the Jets last week.

Finding their bearings following the beatdown loss to Dallas, the Vikings lean on Justin Jefferson and Dalvin Cook to conquer the anonymous Pats on Thanksgiving night.
