The Vikings did something no other NFL team has done before

The Minnesota Vikings rebounded in the biggest of ways on Thanksgiving night beating the New England Patriots and out-scheming Bill Belichick in a 33-26 win.

The win was impressive in many ways, but the way the offense was able to overcome the struggles of the defense was tremendous and borderline unprecedented.

There are a lot of scenarios that you can find where teams with a certain set of circumstances are undefeated. Well, the Vikings found a way to buck that trend, dropping the first loss in 171 such occasions.

This is a major testament to what the Vikings were able to overcome on the defensive side of the ball. The offense was able to lift the defense up and put them on their back.

This team feels different and it showed on Thursday night.
