The Vikings have been the cardiac kids, as their last eight wins have all come by eight points or less. It might be the same story again this week, as Minnesota is just a slight favorite against the Jets.

Minnesota Vikings Week 13 Matchup

One of the best matchups in Week 13 should be the game between the 7-4 New York Jets and the 9-2 Minnesota Vikings. The Jets got a spark last week, as they changed quarterbacks, going from Zach Wilson to Mike White. Despite an excellent game from White, who threw for 315 yards and three touchdowns in the win over the Bears, head coach Robert Saleh said he is treating the quarterback situation on a week-to-week basis. “They’re things we would love to see Zach accomplish — we will call it a reset,” Saleh said to the media, “This is Mike White’s opportunity, that doesn’t change. Mike has an opportunity to stack another great day up this week. When we feel like Zach is ready to roll, he’s going to roll.” Despite what Saleh said to the media, it seems highly unlikely that Wilson is going to get another shot unless White really struggles or gets injured. The Jets went 5-2 in Wilson’s starts but he threw just four TDs against five interceptions.

The Jets are averaging 20.9 points per game which is 20th in the league and they are putting up 325.8 yards per contest. They are giving up just 17.8 points per game which is 4th in the league and they are allowing just 308.8 yards per contest.  Breece Hall leads the team in rushing with 463 yards, Zach Wilson has thrown for 1,279 yards, while Garrett Wilson leads the team in receiving with 628 yards.

The Vikings are averaging 23.8 points per game which is 12th in the league and they are putting up 340.3 yards per contest. They are giving up 23.4 points per game and allowing 390.7 yards per contest. Dalvin Cook leads the team in rushing with 841 yards; Kirk Cousins has thrown for 2,760 yards, while Justin Jefferson leads the team in receiving with 1,232 yards.

Minnesota Vikings Week 12 Recap

Kirk Cousins tossed three touchdown passes, including the one to Adam Thielen that gave the Minnesota Vikings a 33-26 victory over the New England Patriots. in the game, Cousins completed 30 of 37 passes for 299 yards and an interception. Dalvin Cook ran 22 times for 42 yards while Justin Jefferson pulled in nine receptions for 139 yards and a touchdown. In his first three NFL seasons, Jefferson has the most receiving yards (4,248) of any receiver. Randy Moss, a former Viking who collected 4,163 receiving yards between 1998 and 2000, set the previous record.

Mac Jones also threw for a career-high 382 yards and two touchdowns on 28 of 39 passes. In a balanced passing attack, five Patriots receivers ended with at least 60 yards. To cap off New England's opening drive of the second half, Hunter Henry hauled in a touchdown reception for a distance of 37 yards, giving the Patriots a 23-16 lead. That advantage, though, was short-lived as Kene Nwangwu returned the subsequent kickoff 97 yards.

On New England's subsequent drive, Henry appeared to catch another touchdown pass, but the decision on the field was overturned, forcing the Patriots to settle for a Nick Folk field goal from 25 yards out.

At the start of the fourth, Minnesota's Greg Joseph's 36-yard field goal made the score 26-26.

Folk kicked a 40-yard field goal to give New England a 13-10 lead late in the second quarter, but the Vikings answered. T.J. Hockenson received a 1-yard touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins, but Joseph failed to make the extra point. After a lengthy drive by New England into Minnesota territory, Folk's 23-yard field goal attempt with three seconds remaining was successful, leaving the score at 16-16 going into the break.

On the game's first drive, Minnesota shredded the Patriots' defense, moving 80 yards in eight plays for a 7-0 advantage. Cousins' 6-yard touchdown pass to Jefferson ended the march.

However, New England quickly answered, scoring a touchdown just 2:19 later when Jones connected with Nelson Agholor for a touchdown of 34 yards. Folk added a field goal of 34 yards later in the opening quarter.

The Minnesota Vikings were founded as an NFL expansion franchise in 1961. The Vikings were born as a shot at the American Football League, which intended to place a franchise in the Twin Cities with prospective owner Max Winter. But when Winter was offered an NFL franchise, he left the AFL at the altar.

The Vikings have never won a Super Bowl. However, they had an era of glory from 1968 through 1978 that cemented their bond with the state and its fans. The Vikings made four Super Bowls from 1969 through 1976 but were never able to claim the championship.

Bud Grant coached those great Viking teams and is the most revered name in team history. Grant is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Grant’s first Super Bowl team was led by the swashbuckling quarterback Joe Kapp. And then QB Fran Tarkenton led the Vikings in their other three Super Bowl appearances.

Most of all, the Vikings were known for their tremendous defenses in those days. Paul Krause, Carl Eller, and Alan Page were Hall of Fame legends on that era's Purple People Eaters defenses.

Since that golden age, the Vikings have had several good teams and some close calls. But they have never made it back to Super Sunday. Since 1998 the Vikings have lost four NFC Conference Championship Games.
