The Patriots and Vikings have one half of football in the books as the two clubs lock horns in the NFL’s Thanksgiving Day triple-header. At halftime, the teams finished with 16 runs apiece.
After being held to field goals in Week 11, these two offenses wasted no time getting into the end zone to start this game. Minnesota needed just eight plays to travel 80 yards. Later, New England matched that score with a score of their own, when Mack Jones connected with Nelson Agholor for a 34-yard score.
From there, the offense rallied before Kirk Cousins connected with DJ Hockenson just before halftime. With about 90-seconds remaining, the Patriots managed to tie the game with a last-second field goal.
