It's a Thanksgiving night showdown between two playoff hopefuls as Minnesota hosts New England

The Patriots and Vikings have one half of football in the books as these two clubs cap off the NFL's Thanksgiving Day triple-header. At the break, the teams were knotted at 16 apiece. 

After being held to field goals in Week 11, both of these offenses wasted no time getting the end zone to begin this game. Minnesota needed just eight plays to travel 80 yards to score a touchdown on the opening drive of the game. Then, New England matched that score with one of their own as Mac Jones connected with Nelson Agholor for a 34-yard score. 

From there, these offenses traded field goals before Kirk Cousins connected with T.J. Hockenson for a touchdown just before halftime. With around 90-seconds left, the Patriots were able to knot the game with a last-second field goal. 

So, which one of these team will pull away in the second half? We're about to find out. As this game continues to unfold, check out our live blog of Thursday's matchup where you'll find instant analysis and real-time highlights.

The Patriots have done a good job defensively at stopping the run. Dalvin Cook has just 34 yards on 15 carries. Minnesota is averaging just 2.3 yards per carry as a team.

And it's ruled incomplete. I guess I don't know what is or is not a catch.

Interesting review coming up on the Henry would-be touchdown. I'd think this score stands, but the broadcast seems to think there was enough ball movement to rule it incomplete.

Mac Jones is slinging it!

The Patriots seemed to have all the momentum but a 97-yard kickoff return for Minnesota evens up the game at 23 apiece. Wow!

Where has this Patriots offense been all season? Not one, but TWO 30-plus-yard touchdown passes? Yes, please.

Hunter Henry with the 37-yard touchdown. It's been a quiet year for him, but he just pulled off arguably his biggest play of the season.

Jakobi Meyers seems to be banged up after making that third-down reception. Did seem to get hit in the ribs. He's been a clutch option for Mac Jones this season.

Big question for me in this second half surrounds New England's offense. I have my doubt that what they were able to do over the first two quarters is sustainable. Minnesota will likely adjust to try and limit those chunk plays they were seeing in the first half. Meanwhile, the Patriots offense was sneakily 0-3 on third down and couldn't get into the end zone on their two red zone trips.
