Studs and Duds from Vikings’ 33-26 win in Week 12 vs. Patriots

The Minnesota Vikings bounced back in the biggest of ways on Thanksgiving night by beating the New England Patriots 33-26.

The game was a tremendous back-and-forth contest with all 12 scores either tying the game or having one team take the lead. Both quarterbacks were dealing and the offensive lines protected their quarterbacks well for the majority of the game.

The game was excellent and the performances from the Vikings were mostly positive as the studs outnumbered the duds two to one.

Stud: Kirk Cousins

Listen, we all know that Cousins struggles in primetime and he threw a rough interception in the first half. However, he was really good outside of that on Thursday night. Thanksgiving Kirk Cousins is a different beast. He was seeing the field really well and making some tremendous throws to Justin Jefferson in tight windows that would be posted all over social media if it were other quarterbacks. Thanksgiving Kirk Cousins overpowered primetime Kirk Cousins this Thursday night.

Dud: Ed Donatell

The Vikings’ defense was not very good on Sunday and defensive coordinator Ed Donatell is mostly to blame. Yes, he was short-handed without Dalvin Tomlinson and three of his top five cornerbacks, but the play-calling and execution were objectively bad. The pass rush was non-existent and there were no adjustments to help generate one. The Vikings need to have some form of pass rush for this defense to work and they didn’t do a good enough job.
