Why Tedy Bruschi Believes Patriots Will Take Down Vikings In Week 13 Clash

The New England Patriots will face one of their toughest tests of the season Sunday afternoon when they welcome the Minnesota Vikings to Gillette Stadium.
Save for the Chicago Bears, the Vikings arguably feature the strongest defense the Patriots will see in the regular season. But despite Minnesota’s defensive prowess, Tedy Bruschi still believes his former team will come out victorious in Week 13.

The players that they have, the pass rush that they have.

The Texas A&M product, while possessing elite athleticism, was unlikely to see a ton of playing time for a team that is loaded with talent vying for an […]

The Vikings aren’t nearly as strong against the pass as they are against the run, so Bruschi’s logic is fairly sound. The former linebacker also believes a healthy Rob Gronkowski will pay dividends, as Brady now has his full arsenal of weapons including Rex Burkhead, who recently was lifted off injured reserve.
Not all NFL analysts are rolling with the Patriots this Sunday, however. Bruschi’s co-panelist, former head coach John Fox, believes the Vikings’ desire to stay in the NFC North title hunt will lift them to a road win, while Ray Lewis also is picking Minnesota.
