Once again, the Vikings are off to a hot start.

Receiver Justin Jefferson led the way on the first drive of the Thanksgiving nightcap against the Patriots, scoring a 6-yard touchdown to give Minnesota an early 7-0 lead.

Jefferson caught a pair of passes for 13 yards on the possession, also gaining 15 extra yards with a facemask penalty that put the Vikings in Patriots’ territory.

But Jefferson was also a passer, hitting fellow receiver Adam Thielen for an 11-yard gain on a double pass.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins was 4-of-4 for 42 yards to start. Running back Dalvin Cook had three carries for 12 yards.
