The New England Patriots will travel to play the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving night from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The game will kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET and air on NBC.

Thursday will be the Patriots’ sixth Thanksgiving game in franchise history, and they’ll come in with a 3-2 record on Turkey Day with a three-game winning streak. The last time New England played on Thanksgiving came 10 years ago in a 49-19 win over the New York Jets in a matchup that was headlined by Mark Sanchez’s butt fumble.

The Vikings played in eight Thanksgiving games during their history, and they are 6-2 in those contests. Minnesota has never hosted a Thanksgiving game, and its most recent contest came in 2017 when it went on the road and knocked off the Detroit Lions 30-23.

The Vikings are 2.5-point favorites on DraftKings Sportsbook with the over/under set at 42.5.
