New England Patriots vs. Minnesota Vikings, one of the most important games of this week, the Vikings are desperate for a victory but they know how hard it is to win at Foxborough against Tom Brady. The home team is relaxed, they do not depend on a victory, but they should not lose this game to reach the playoffs with more strength.
New England Patriots: Nothing stops us.
The Patriots have played well this season, not perfectly as some expected but 8-3-0 seems to be a good record to reach the playoffs. December is a month with five games for the Patriots: Vikings, Dolphins, Steelers, Bills and Jets. Three at home and only two on the road. Relatively easy for Brady. Last week they won 27-13 against the Jets on the road, it was one of our predictions, and an important win for Brady on the road.
Against the Vikings the historical record in the last four games is 4-0-0 for the Patriots. The last game was in 2014, the victory for the Patriots 30-7, but those Vikings are totally different from now.
Tom Brady last week against the Jets had a good game with 64.52% in completed passes, 283 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs. The best thing about that game was that the Pats defense was perfect and they did not allow sacks. At home the Patriots are a point-making machine, 35.4 points per game, and the defense only allows 21.6 points to the visitors.
Minnesota Vikings: Desperate.
The Vikings do not have the best record to get to the playoffs, 6-4-1 is not good at knowing that they have to play against the Patriots this week and against the Seahawks at week thirteen. The only relatively easy rivals in the December games for the Vikings are the Dolphins in week fifteen. The others are Lions and Bears. Last week they won an important game against the Packers on Monday Night Football, 24-17.
Kirk Cousins so far has been the best QB of the Vikings in recent years, 71.14% of completed passes, 3289 yards, 22 touchdowns and only 7 interceptions. Against the Packers last week Cousins had 3 TDs and 0 INT, but the defense allowed two sacks at home. 2-2-1 on the road for the Vikings this season, 28 points per game, but up to 26 allowed.
