Patriots-Vikings takeaways: Mac Jones looks sharp in losing effort originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The New England Patriots and Minnesota Vikings played one of the most entertaining games of the 2022 NFL season on Thanksgiving Night. The back-and-forth affair ended with Minnesota on top, 33-26.

After preventing the New York Jets from scoring a touchdown in Week 11, the Patriots’ defense struggled to contain the Vikings’ passing attack. Kirk Cousins completed 30 of his 37 attempts for 299 yards and three touchdowns. Superstar wideout Justin Jefferson did most of the damage with nine catches for 139 yards and a TD.

The defense and special teams, along with costly penalties and a few controversial calls, spoiled an encouraging showing from Patriots quarterback Mac Jones. He stepped up to throw for a career-high 382 yards with two touchdowns — and a third that was reversed — in the losing effort.

Here are three takeaways from what was a thrilling Thanksgiving shootout, but a disappointing result for New England.

 Penalties prove costly

Our Tom E. Curran said it best: “The Patriots’ penchant for penalties is eye-popping to behold.”

Penalties have been a problem for New England all season long and they once again were a difference-maker in Thursday’s defeat. The Patriots were penalized six times for 55 yards.

Myles Bryant was flagged for a personal foul after a hit on Vikings wideout Adam Thielen. Jonathan Jones had two facemask penalties. Pierre Strong ran into the punter to continue a Minnesota drive that ended up turning into the game-winning TD.

Those types of plays usually are uncharacteristic for a Bill Belichick-coached team, but they have dragged the Patriots down throughout the 2022 campaign. On Thursday, you certainly could make a case it was the reason they came up short.

Mac Jones has his best game of 2022

Making the loss sting even more for the Patriots is it wasted Jones’ best game of the season…
