The Minnesota Vikings (8-2) welcome the New England Patriots (6-4) to U.S. Bank Stadium on Thursday night. It will be the 14th meeting between the teams and the first Thanksgiving game.
The Vikings look to rebound after a disappointing loss last week. A quick turnaround is needed against the sizzling Patriots. However, it could be a difficult challenge. New England is on a three-game winning streak and has allowed just six points in its last two games.
The Patriots own a 9-4 record in the series. The Vikings have lost five consecutive games against the Patriots, with their last victory during the 2000 season.
Here's a look at the betting details and USA TODAY's NFL staff picks for the Patriots vs. Vikings Week 12 game:
Spread: Vikings (-2.5)
Moneyline: Vikings (-135); Patriots (+115)

Minnesota showed it may not be the dominant contender its record had indicated, but this should be a chance for a bounceback. Still, Kirk Cousins’ historically deficient performance in primetime bears concern here, but the Patriots offense is still far too unreliable to back in this spot.
The Vikings had a huge letdown at home last week against the Cowboys, but there’s no better remedy than playing four days later. They’ll take care of the Patriots, who needed to return a punt for a touchdown to get past the Jets last week.
Finding their bearings following the beatdown loss to Dallas, the Vikings lean on Justin Jefferson and Dalvin Cook to conquer the anonymous Pats on Thanksgiving night.

Here's What Stood Out in the Celtics' Win vs. Suns: Dominant Defensive Performance Paves Way to Blowout VictoryIt was supposed to be a potential NBA Finals preview. Boston did so with a stellar defensive performance, forcing the Suns to try to keep pace while relying heavily on inefficient shots from mid-range. And before the score became so lopsided the Suns couldn't even consider a comeback victory, Boston only committed four turnovers. Malcolm Brogdon registered the most points in the frame, producing eight on 3/3 shooting, going 2/2 from beyond the arc, pacing a Celtics' bench that outscored the Suns' second unit 10-1. That paved the way for the visitors to take a 31-21 advantage into the second quarter.58 minutes ago Sports Illustrated
