This matchup between the Vikings and Patriots isn’t carrying nearly the same amount of hype Chiefs-Rams did a couple of weeks ago — despite being the only game from the daytime slate featuring two legitimate playoff contenders — but don’t be surprised if it plays out in a similar manner with the offenses having their way.
One of the most underrated constants in sports will be at work on Sunday, with Tom Brady and Co. set to take the field at Gillette Stadium. Prior to last season, the Patriots averaged more than 30 points per game at Foxboro for a mind-blowing eight consecutive seasons with Brady under center (including the playoffs).
