TODAY'S VIKINGS SCHEDULE

Vikings players have the day off. Several of them, including C John Sullivan and DT Tom Johnson, will spend it at an early Thanksgiving meal at University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

Sacks and pressures were the big issue for Kalil until recently. Now penalties are a problem for him, too. Kalil was flagged three times Sunday against the Packers for 35 yards. He has now been penalized eight times this season, according to ESPN. That’s the seventh-highest total in the NFL.
