Patriots' Bill Belichick, Vikings receiver have heated exchange during fourth quarter

The Patriots scored 14 points on consecutive drives in the third and fourth quarters Sunday to take a 24-10 lead they wouldn't relinquish, dashing Minnesota's chance to get a major win in its quest for the playoffs. "It just lets you all know how passionate he is".

Thielen appeared to ignite the argument during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game in New England as Belichick mulled over whether or not to challenge a play that had given Minnesota's offense a first down with about nine minutes remaining.

The Vikes had a lot to play for in this one, too. The Vikings don't have a win this season over a team that now has a winning record.

Minnesota (6-5-1) has lost two of its last three. "He might've been hurt, that's fine, it is what it is, but like I said, just interesting timing for a guy to go down when it's a close play". And when he needed the big play, he went short.

Speaking of playing well, there were some great performances from Vikings players against the Patriots who deserve to be recognized for what they were able to do on the football field in Week 13.

Clearly, this was not a game for students of the new school NFL.

Gordon to the rescue.

The New England Patriots are in the midst of their annual second-half rise to the top of the AFC standings.

"Yeah, pretty much, " a smiling Belichick said. The Vikings receiver, however, took ownership of the exchange. "There's emotions", Thielen said. Why not? It's not cheating because there's no rule against it from a guy going down. "We never got in position to make it a pass-rush game". "I don't want us to go backwards anymore". He remains a mystery to some, hard t analyze, but the talent is irrefutable.

He had quite a bit more to say to Thielen, the Vikings' standout wide receiver, during the game.

"I've been on the other end of that few times in my career, " Brady, New England's quarterback, said Monday, Dec. 3, on his weekly radio spot on WEEI. It seemed to work in our favor, and the coaches, my trust is in the coaches. He can think what he wants to think about me. "So, it worked out for us".

"Fellas, that is a good job", he told the team in the locker room, via Patriots.com. For example, Rob Gronkowski only had three catches for 26 yards. "Bill's fiery. We see it every day, so I think it's probably a lot cooler for you guys to see it".

Cordarrelle Patterson explained the mindset: Patience. Zimmer said he's always involved with the offensive game plan and is in constant communication with DeFilippo on the Vikings' approach.

"Man, Jerald Jackson is a heck of a player", said Jason McCourty.

So the Patriots waited.
