Patriots fired up over Belichicks verbal exchange with Adam Thielen

Patriots fired up over Belichicks verbal exchange with Adam Thielen”

Vikings receiver Adam Thielen was so revved up about some potential Patriots skullduggery during the fourth quarter that an official had to hold him back from New England coach Bill Belichick on the sideline.

However, it's a pretty safe bet that Bill Belichick will not be sending such a card to Adam Thielen.

"I've got to keep my cool", Thielen said in the Minnesota locker room after the 24-10 loss to the Patriots. "I have a lot of respect for [Belichick] and what he's done".

Patriots: S Patrick Chung was helped off the field in the fourth quarter.

Thielen was upset about a Patriots player going down with an apparent injury around the same time New England challenged a Vikings first down. He can think what he wants to think about me, and it doesn't really change how I'm going to go play the game. 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. "It's not cheating. There's no rule against it". I can't lose it like that, but I just thought it was interesting timing for a guy to go down when it was a close play that could have been reviewed. Alright, give up 10 points on defense, turn the ball over, move the ball on offense, we played the game the way we wanted to play it, and we got the results we wanted. Something Kyle Van Noy, the first Patriot to confront Thielen after he jawed at Belichick, noted in his postgame meeting with the media, asking, "how many catches did [Thielen] have?" "I love when we get in games like this, when it's going back and forth. But he's a great guy, man, on and off the field". "But everybody's out there battling". "There's emotions", Thielen said.

Thielen told reporters after the game he thought it was a "cheap" play by New England.

"Hopefully I don't go backwards next week", Brady said. Instead, they sit at 6-5-1 - just outside wild-card position, with another tough game next week in Seattle.

He has averaged 1.7 yards per carry and 3.8 yards per game, with his most "prolific" season in 2002, when he ran for a total of 110 yards. Cousins threw for a modest 201 yards on 32-for-44 passing. That lack of consistency is vexing head coach Mike Zimmer. I don't know where it went.

The defeat prevented Minnesota from gaining ground on the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears, who lost 30-27 to the New York Giants earlier Sunday.

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.

"I feel fine about my team", Zimmer said. "We talk about things what I think are important, and I think he tries to do those".
