Patriots vs. Vikings: Live updates, scores, news, game details

It was two drastically different outcomes for the New England Patriots and Minnesota Vikings last weekend. As Marcus Jones took a last-second punt return to the house to give the Patriots a near walk-off 10-3 victory, the Vikings then took the field and got their doors blown off by the Dallas Cowboys with a final score of 40- 3.

Both teams had to quickly put last week’s ups and downs in the rearview mirror, however, as they will take the field on Thanksgiving night to cap off a short week.

Follow along here for all your live updates and everything else you need to know.

First quarter

Minnesota got the ball first to start Thursday night’s contest and got right to work. Cousins ​​found Johnny Mundt for 13 yards then immediately went to Justin Jefferson on a quick screen for an additional seven – a Jon Jones facemark penalty added 15 more yards. After Cousins ​​found Thielen for 16 yards, Minnesota dialed up the trickery as Jefferson found Thielen for another first down. Three plays later, Cousins ​​found his superstar receiver streaking across the field for an early score. [Patriots 0 : 7 Vikings]

Trailing early, Mac Jones and the Patriots’ offense quickly answered Minnesota’s score. Starting under center, Jones was not phased by a muffed snap and hit Jakobi Meyers down field off play-action for 26 yards. After an RPO run by Damien Harris for seven yards and an additional carry for four more, Mac found Henry for a four-yard gain before ripping one downfield between the safeties to Nelson Agholor for a 34-yard touchdown.

After a fast start from both offenses, the Patriots defense settled in on their second drive. Facing a third-and-one after a six-yard catch by Jefferson and three-yard carry by Dalvin Cook, Cousin’s third-down pass intended for Jefferson was broken up (and nearly intercepted) by Jonathan Jones.

New England turned to Rhamondre Stevenson on their next drive, as the back totaled a five-yard carry and two-yard catch to start the drive. On third-down, Jones’ quick pass out to Stevenson was slightly high but dropped incomplete, leading to a punt.
