The Thursday night game forces the Vikings to quickly lick their wounds after the loss to the Cowboys, and shorten preparations for the Patriots.

The matchup pits O’Connell against the team that made him a third-round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft.

O’Connell played as a backup QB for Bill Belichick behind Tom Brady and Matt Cassell for one season.
