Vikings @ Pats

Recommended Posts



Tom Brady has quarterbacked New England to four straight wins over the Vikings. The Patriots haven't lost to them since Week 3 of 2000 during the Drew Bledsoe era. The only team with a longer active winning streak over Minnesota is the Colts (five games).

The last four quarterbacks to face the Vikings, including Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers, have all failed to reach 200 passing yards. Minnesota has held the opposition under 200 passing yards in 14 games since the start of last season -- most in the NFL.

The Patriots have won 10 straight in Foxborough, two better than Kansas City for the NFL's longest active home winning streak. New England is 68-9 (.883) at home in the past 10 regular seasons, while no other team in that span has reached 60 home victories.

Kirk Cousins is coming off his fifth 300-yard passing game as a Viking, one shy of the single-season team record shared by Brett Favre (2009), Daunte Culpepper (2004) and Warren Moon (1994). Cousins' streak of 11 straight games with a TD pass is the longest by a Viking since Culpepper -- 21 from 2003-04.

New England has won 26 of its last 27 regular-season games when Rob Gronkowski catches a TD pass and has a 52-7 all-time record when he has one. Since Gronkowski's 2010 rookie season, the only active player with a better such record (minimum 10 games) is teammate Julian Edelman at 20-2.

Rookie Sony Michel notched his third 100-yard rushing game of the season last week. The last time a Patriots rookie had more was Robert Edwards in 1998 (four). Minnesota hasn't allowed a 100-yard rusher in 14 straight games, the second-longest active streak in the NFL behind New Orleans (17).

I hate this team. They're utterly spineless.
