NFL Schedule News: Vikings to Host Patriots on Thanksgiving Night

For the first time ever, the Minnesota Vikings will host a game on Thanksgiving day this year. They’re reportedly playing the New England Patriots in the night game at US Bank Stadium, according to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald.

The Vikings have played on Thanksgiving before – eight times, to be exact, tied for 11th-most among all teams. But all eight of those games, which took place between 1969 and 2017, were on the road in either Dallas or Detroit. They went 6-2 in those games.

Now the Vikings are finally getting to play a home game on the nation’s foremost NFL holiday. After the Cowboys and Lions play in the first two games, the three-game slate will wrap up with the Vikings and Patriots battling in Minneapolis. That should be a hell of an atmosphere.
