We have reached 13 of the NFL season and in this game it’s a huge cross-conference matchup when the Minnesota Vikings make the trip to Gillette Stadium to take on the New England Patriots.
The Patriots have won the last four games played between the two teams.
The Minnesota Vikings have had an up and down season but are coming into this game off a big win against the Green Bay Packers and if the season ended today, they would be in the playoffs.
The Vikings defense shut down Aaron Rodgers and Kirk Cousins showed why the Vikings paid him the big bucks to get him to Minnesota.
Cousins threw for 342 yards and three touchdowns and really looked to be the better quarterback at US Bank Stadium in the game.
On the season the defense is giving up only 22.4 points per game but the last five games it has looked like Zimmer’s defense of old.
In this game the defense is going to need to be good. They might be without Xavier Rhodes and that would be a big blow to them.
If the defense can put pressure on Brady and make him get the ball out quick, that will be a good chance for the defense to keep the Patriots score low.
New England Patriots
On the other side of this matchup is the New England Patriots who have had a nice season and are one of the best in the NFL but it still looks like this team has a ways to go to get back to the Super Bowl.
The last few weeks Tom Brady has looked a bit off, and even though they beat the Jets 27-13, the offense left a lot of points out on the field.
At home the Patriots offense has been elite averaging 35.4 points per game but scoring for them in this game is going to be tough.
On the defensive side of the ball the Patriots are giving up only 21.6 points per game with the rush defense being really strong.
In this game it’s going to come down to how they get after Cousins. If they can put pressure on him like the Bears did they will be in good shape.

NFL Free Week 13 Score Prediction: Patriots 21 – Vikings 17
Yes the Patriots are at home and are probably better, but seven points are just too many for me. I think the Vikings will cover the spread, with the Patriots winning.
