A Patriots win today against the Minnesota Vikings means the Pats will be guaranteed an 18th consecutive winnings season. No other franchise in the NFL has more than 16.

But beating the Vikes won't be easy.

Our live coverage of the game on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket begins at 1:30pm with the pregame show.

The 8-3 Patriots are remarkable healthy. Only TE Dwayne Allen is out and remember RB Rex Burkhead makes his return from the injured list.

Two standout Vikings are questionable - WR Stefon Diggs and CB Xavier Rhodes are banged up and were limited in practice all week.

The (6-4-1) Vikes have an outstanding defense. The rank #1 in the NFL in third-down defense and red zone defense.

Kirk Cousins runs Minnesota offense and of course Tom Brady is at the helm of the Patriots.
