first_img4:34 p.m.: New England piling up the chunk plays early. Brady with completions for 24,18, 15, and 13 yards.4:27 p.m.: Minnesota will start with the ball and it gets an incomplete pass, short run from Dalvin Cook and a 6-yard completion that will force an early punt.3:36 p.m.: A couple of important Vikings players who have been battling injury will be active today.Stefon Diggs and Xavier Rhodes are active.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 2, 2018 Minnesota had the opportunity to get back in the game in the fourth quarter but Kirk Cousins threw an interception in the end zone which squashed any hope of a rally.Unlikely contributor James Develin, the rarely-used fullback, played a major role in the Patriots win, scoring his second and third touchdowns of the season on 1-yard rushes. New England’s offense was humming in the second half, but suffered in the first 30 minutes due some huge stops from the Vikings’ (6-5-1) defense that wound up keeping the score tight. Minnesota failed to capitalize on the Bears loss and stayed 1 1/2 games behind the Bears in the NFC North. Dalvin Cook ran for 84 yards on only nine carries, but the Vikings inability to throw the ball down the field prevented them from doing much on the offensive side of the ball. They will have a massively important matchup next week against the Seahawks, a fellow wild-card contender.MORE: Week 13 playoff picture | Week 13 updates, highlightsSporting News provided live updates from Vikings vs. Patriots. Vikings vs. Patriots: Score, results, highlights(All times ET)Vikings: 10Patriots: 24Final: Patriots 24, Vikings 107:21 p.m.: INTERCEPTION, PATRIOTS. The Vikings last-ditch attempt to score points is thwarted as Cousins is intercepted by Jonathan Jones.
