Your Week 12 primetime game between the Pats and the Vikings is only the 14th time these teams will have met. The Patriots lead the series 9-4-0 and have walked away with pretty decisive victories the last five times they've gone head-to-head against the Vikings. The Patriots are also on a three-game winning streak on Thanksgiving games, and since this particular game will help decide if the Patriots make it to the playoffs, expect to see the New Englanders in top form.

The Vikings will potentially hit the field while missing their two main cornerbacks since both Andrew Booth Jr. and Akayleb Evans haven't been moved from the injury report this week. If neither of these players suits up on Thursday, expect to see Duke Shelley, who just moved up from the practice squad. After last week's crushing defeat against the Cowboys, the Vikings have a lot to adjust if they hope to stand a chance against Bill Belichick and his Patriots team.

Don’t miss a single second of a single play, especially with so much football on the menu. Follow our guide below to make sure you keep up with all the action this Thursday.

Where to Watch the Thanksgiving Day Games

All of the following information is fine and well for a regular week, but please don't forget that this week's “Thursday Night Football” game will air on NBC, and the daytime games will air on CBS!

Amazon Prime Video is the official home of “Thursday Night Football.” It doesn’t matter which “skinny bundle” you have because Amazon Prime Video is the only place to catch the game live. Amazon offers a 30-day free trial, so you can see the new commentators and theme song this week and decide if continuing the service is worth it.

If you can’t use Amazon Prime Video, the official NFL app has live Thursday coverage of your local game. Plus, full-game replays are available 10 minutes after the game ends. Watching your favorite team play the day after it happens isn’t ideal, but it’s better than not being able to watch it at all.
