The Minnesota Vikings have 10 games in the books in 2022, with an 8-2 record exiting Week 11.

First-year head coach Kevin O’Connell lost for a second time in Week 11, thanks to a shellacking from the Dallas Cowboys, 40-3. Next up, the Vikings remain at home to play the 6-4 New England Patriots, the sixth seed in the AFC’s evolving playoff picture.
