Both teams come out with completely different results. New England essentially kicked the winning kick in the dying seconds of their tight divisional game with the Planes In Week 11, while Minnesota gave up 40 points to Cowboys And he exploded in his first home loss of the season.
The Vikings are down 4-1 in front of their home fans and are 2-3 against the Spread (ATS) in games like this. The Patriots went 3-2 on the road and posted a mark of 3-1-1 ATS, having covered their last three games away from Foxborough.
Last week’s loss was a surprising letdown for Minnesota, which still holds firmly as No. 1 in the NFC North. Thursday’s Vikings victory will be their first in the series since 2000. The last five games have gone to the Patriots, with the last meeting coming in 2018.

The game total is set at 42.5 points despite the fact that neither team managed to land offensive tackles last week.
Patriots quarterback Mac Jones He struggled throughout his sophomore season and had more interceptions (seven) than touchdowns (four) on the year. For the most part, New England has been able to count on running backs Ramonder Stephenson And the Damien Harris But the rushing offense continued at 99 yards last week. But the backbone of this team is its defense, which it is No. 1 by DVOA.
Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins He had his worst game of the season against a ferocious Cowboys defense and will face another tough test at home. He finished with just 105 yards, no touchdowns, and grabbed seven sacks in Minnesota’s worst offensive outing of the year. For the season, he has 2,461 yards and 14 touchdowns, six of which went to his high target Justin Jefferson. The sophomore pro was largely sidelined last week but is a serious threat and highlights a group of skill position players that include running back Dalvin Cookfellow receiver Adam Thelin And I recently got a tight end TJ Hawkinson.
There is potential for the Vikings to rebound here, especially against a Patriots team that struggled to move the ball. The value in this game appears to be in the sum, not the spread. Half of Minnesota’s games are over this season and less than 50% of New England’s are over. These offenses don’t count as trading points, and even if Jefferson and Cousins can beat the depth of the secondary a few times, Jones isn’t likely to have much on the counter.
