NFL: Kirk Cousins ​​throws 3 touchdown passes and the Vikings defeat the Patriots 33 to 26

SUMMARY

Kirk Cousins ​​threw touchdown passes to three different receivers, and the Minnesota Vikings avenged their second loss of the season suffered last week by beating the New England Patriots 33-26 on Thursday in the last of three Thanksgiving matchups in the NFL.

Not having had the controls once during the first three quarters, the Vikings scored ten points in the 4th and did not allow any to the Pats (6-5), who saw their three-game winning streak come to an end.

Finding themselves half-court shortly before the two-minute stoppage, Bill Belichick’s troops tried everything for all on a 4th try and 16, but Mac Jones’ long pass to Nelson Agholor just lacked precision .

As usual, star wide receiver Justin Jefferson was imperial. The young receiver surpassed Randy Moss’ mark for most receiving yards in his first three seasons.

The mark belonging to Moss, himself a former Viking at the start of his career, stood at 4,163. After this other great performance, Jefferson totals 4,248, with seven games to play on the 2022 calendar.

Cousins ​​also spotted Adam Thielen and TJ Hockenson in the end zone for majors. The veteran quarterback had 299 yards through the air.

After a rocky start the previous week against the New York Jets, Jones held off Cousins ​​for 288 passing yards, in addition to passing touchdowns to Agholor and Hunter Henry.

Author of nine catches for gains of 139 yards in addition to a touchdown, Jefferson thus added a seventh performance of more than 100 yards to his record this season.

Minnesota (9-2) was outshot the Dallas Cowboys 40-3 in Week 11, snapping a seven-game winning streak.

The Vikes thus remain one game behind the Philadelphia Eagles (9-1), ranked first in the National. The latter will play at home on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.
