What Bill Belichick told Patriots in locker room after win over Vikings

Thielen explains in-game dustup with Belichick

Watch: Bill Belichick tells Adam Thielen to shut the f--- up

Instead, they sit at 6-5-1 - just outside wild-card position, with another tough game next week in Seattle. The makeup of that team changed in a major way late Friday night, however, with the release of running back Kareem Hunt, who led the league in rushing as a rookie previous year, after a video showing him shoving and kicking a woman in an incident that occurred in February at a Cleveland hotel was released by TMZ. According to PFF, he threw for just 152 yards on his 33 attempts from a clean pocket, with his touchdown to Thielen and an interception among those attempts.

Kirk Cousins kept Minnesota in the game early, before faltering down the stretch. Only 12 times this season have the Vikings had runs of 15 yards or more. But they aren't the Patriots.

Belichick did challenge the play, but the spot was not overturned by the replay review. Belichick did not appreciate Thielen's attitude and had some choice words of his own. It included linebacker Kyle Van Noy coming to his coach's defense.

"Bill's fiery", added safety Devin McCourty. "Sometimes football comes down to a yard". And when he needed the big play, he went short.

After the game, Thielen said there were no hard feelings. I just thought the play was cheap, but like I said, I let the emotions get the best of me because it's a smart football play if you are in that situation.

"Every guy on the offense, they're hungry".

The Patriots have used Patterson differently than any of his three previous coaches. "We all know our role and we embrace it".

8 countries Pakistanis can travel to without a visa
Pakistan's western neighbor Iran has achieved 42nd spot on the list with its citizens able to travel visa-free to 12 countries. Sheikh Abdullah said the achievement was "a true reflection of the legacy of Sheikh Zayed, the Founding Father of the UAE".

New England went up 7-0 on its first possession and was heading for another touchdown on its third before the Vikings made a goal-line stand and forced a field goal.

The Vikings successfully challenged the referee's spot after an apparent first down completion to Rob Gronkowski.

Minnesota stopped the ensuing run by James White and New England was forced to punt.

Belichick granted the Patriots an extra day off this week, and the team went insane when he told them in the locker room following the 24-10 victory. He slid to a stop, popped to his knee and signaled for a first down. His 158-yard rush total happened as a rookie in Minnesota, the year before Zimmer took over. "I just thought the play was cheap", Thielen said in the Gillette Stadium visitors' locker room. "He can think what he wants to think about me, and it doesn't really change how I'm going to play the game".

Is it an actual milestone or a bit of a playful jab at Tom Brady's lack of speed? At 41, he is also the oldest player to reach 1,000 career rushing yards since 1970.

Over the middle two quarters, the Vikings slowly worked their way back into their latest spotlight game.

Although Cook said on Monday that he wasn't concerned about his number of carries tapering off in the second half, the running back could not put his finger on why the Vikings chose to not stick with the run.
