In the blink of an eye, the 2022-23 NFL season is just 7 weeks away from the end of the regular season, and we are just days away from the start of week 12, which will feature a great selection of games to enjoy during Thanksgiving Day Football.
At this time of the season, it is even more important to get victories since we are very close to the end of the regular season and the teams that do not have a good record must close in the best possible way to fight for a place in the postseason.
In this week 12, we will have a game between two of the most popular teams in the NFL, the New England Patriots, and Minnesota Vikings will face each other in this Thursday Night Football match.
While the New England Patriots don’t necessarily have the same rivalry with the Minnesota Vikings as they do with some of their other historic rivals, that hasn’t stopped fans from getting excited about their upcoming Thursday night game.

Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet the Patriots
Mac Jones and the New England Patriots hope to return to the playoffs this season after a 2-season absence. But, just getting to the postseason will be a challenge, as the team currently sits in third place in the AFC East with a 6-4 record, a remarkably competitive division this year.
Jones, who finished second in Offensive Rookie of the Year voting last season, has struggled this year, throwing just four touchdown passes and seven interceptions in his seven games as a starter.
The Patriots have had to opt to use their ground game this season, specifically in the running back duo of Rhamondre Stevenson and Damien Harris. Stevenson has a team-high 5 touchdowns, while Harris is tied for second on the team with 3 total touchdowns on the ground.
The Patriots come into this week 12 after a win over the New York Jets by a score of 10-3. While their offense has not been as good as expected, the defense has shined, especially in their last 3 games where they have not conceded more than 20 points and in their last 2 games they have conceded only 6 points.
Why Bet the Vikings
The Vikings looked particularly strong at the start of the season when they secured a dominant win against the Packers. Although some doubts began to emerge after a loss in the second week of the season, the Vikings have gone from strength to strength in terms of performance. Right now, the Vikings are leading the NFC North with the second-best record in the entire league, with 8 wins, and only 2 losses.
The Vikings are coming off an unexpected, terrible, and crushing Week 11 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, with a score of 3-40. However, thanks to the excellent season they are having and the poor performance of the rest of the teams in their division, the Vikings can be confident about the closing of the regular season.
Kirk Cousins, Justin Jefferson, and Dalvin Cook have been in charge of the Viking’s offense all season. Cousins has a 63.4% pass completion percentage with 2461 air yards and 14 touchdowns, while Jefferson ranks second in the league with 1093 yards receiving this season.
Finally, Cook has 156 carries, 799 ground yards, and has scored 6 ground touchdowns this season.
