The Vikings are back on top of the Patriots in the fourth quarter.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins hit receiver Adam Thielen in the back of the end zone for a 15-yard touchdown, giving Minnesota a 33-26 lead with 9:34 left in the contest.

On the play before, receiver Justin Jefferson made another outstanding catch to put the Vikings in scoring position. Jefferson caught a 36-yard pass down the left side, maintaining possession despite taking a hard hit as he brought in the ball.

Jefferson now has nine catches for 139 yards with a touchdown in the game.

The Patriots and Vikings have gone back and forth throughout Thursday night. We’ll see if Mac Jones and the New England offense can put together another response.

If New England is to do it, it’ll be without running back Damien Harris. He’s been downgraded to out with his thigh injury.

  1. The refs are taking over this game.On both teams
    Lot of questionable calls and non calls
    What’s going on man?

  2. Cousins win in primetime would be big for his brand and confidence. Can Jones lead the offense to a comeback?

  3. Great game. Pats offense best game of the season. Defense played well but Justin Jefferson is basically uncoverable

  4. The Vikings punter headed to Qatarvafter the end of the game for his other job playing soccer. What a flop artist. Dude should get fined for his shenanigans.

  5. Thielen should give his turkey leg to Jefferson. He can’t get open without a #1 wr playing across from him.

  6. Against Belichick’s defense
    Lion scored 0 point.
    Colts scored 3 points
    Jets scored 3 points.

    That is why Pats defense now is #2, that is how Pats were #1 in 2003 and 2004 : containing lousy offense to single digit, but fell apart when games were on the line.

    Typical Belichick’s PAPER TIGER defense.

    ——————————
    Does that also mean that opposing teams don’t have a good enough #2 corner to cover a #2 wr? That’s really what you just said. Tell us again how Thielen caught the TD that put the Vikes ahead for good.

    Up front played ok they did well against Cook. Secondary not so much. Love D-Mac but I think it’s the end. Great career.

  11. “Thielen isn’t any good.”

    I mean, he’s better than anyone the patriots have had on their roster since Wes Welker.

    Agreed. McCourty is a great guy and solid human being. But he is a little too old at this point to be playing safety in the NFL for the entire game. I expect this to be his last year. I also expect Josh Allen to take advantage of his diminished capabilities in coverage.
