New England Patriots 14, Minnesota Vikings 10 - Vikings Get Three, Patriots Get Seven

The Vikings executed a good, solid, lengthy drive down the field after coming out of the locker room at halftime, but the Patriots showed that a quick strike can work as well.

The Vikings settled for a 24-yard field goal from Ryan Longwell to take a 10-7 lead, and then the Vikings appeared to have Tom Brady dead to rights on the Patriots’ next possession, but he stayed alive and found Brandon Tate for a 65-yard touchdown pass. Madieu Williams got absolutely schooled by Tate on the play, which was bad, because he was the last guy that had a chance to make the stop.

With 7:59 left in the third quarter, the Vikings are now trailing in New England by a count of 14-10.
