Curious what the #Jets locker room thinks about Mike White? Why this team will be sticking with him moving forward? Garrett Wilson answers: "I'll go to war for that boy. He's got something special about him." pic.twitter.com/2eDUfbgebY
#Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) isn't expected to play today against the #Vikings, and coach Robert Saleh told me it'll be backfield by committee: Bam Knight, Ty Johnson and James Robinson will all get opportunities.
Blake Brandel will replace starting left tackle Christian Darrisaw for the second straight week. Former Vikings tight end Tyler Conklin is in the lineup for the Jets.
How many fantasy managers rolled with Zonovan Knight in Week 13? He tallied 118 total yards for 16.8 PPR points. #TakeFlight pic.twitter.com/83KA9UZbEs
Short passes to Ty Johnson on third down is something
Cowboys LG Connor McGovern rotated out of game for this third possession. LT Tyler Smith in at left guard. Jason Peters working at left tackle.
James Robinson gets the call in the short-yardage situation. Backfield by committee. #Jets

Big play by C.J. Mosley on third down. Offense has to do something now.
Jets get their first sack of Cousins today. Quinnen Williams gets him. That is Williams' ninth sack of the season.
Elijah Moore has to drag that other foot down. Could have been a huge play there
The Greg Zuerlein Show rolls on. He makes his 4th FG to make it 20-12. Fant's penalty -- absolute killer. #Jets
DL Micheal Clemons (knee) is questionable to return #NYJvsMIN
Braxton Berrios on the fourth-down incompletion in the end zone: "That one's on me." White says he should've led him a little more with the pass. #Jets
D.J. Reed says he woke up this morning experiencing chest tightness, adding that he needed oxygen throughout the game. Had to leave briefly because he was "super super super" winded. #Jets
Looks like it was Max Mitchell on the sack. Had no RB help. Costly breakdown in pass pro. #Jets
Brandin Echols is in at corner. Jets also have Will Parks in for a 3-safety look.
Max Mitchell gets the start at RT. George Fant will be the backup swing T. #Jets
GREAT TEAM WIN! Giving away my headband and towel from today to celebrate the W! RT to help us get to the Pro Bowl and for a chance to win.

🏈Jets at Vikings: #Jets play a style of defense that causes problems for Kirk Cousins. He has: 7 INTs vs zone (T-most in NFL) 7 INTs vs 4-man rush (T-3rd most) 157 pressures overall (most in NFL)
Adam Thielen said he could see Dalvin Cook having him role today, because Vikings better when he's ‘ripping off 10-yard runs' Thielen said he feels great after dealing with knee bruise midseason, plans to be physical downfield.
Patrick Peterson is in the middle of a resurgent season. Each Wednesday night, he cooks the #Vikings young corners dinner and tells them his tricks. "That's what makes him a favorite guy to play with," Jordan Hicks said. "It's invaluable." bit.ly/3iAhG7s
NEW — How do the Vikings keep doing this? Harrison Smith thinks they have a certain confidence. And where does that confidence come from? After today's Jets win, Smith offered up his hypothesis: theathletic.com/3969501/2022/1…
Two big plays on that series (run stop and a sack) for Pat Jones, who's getting more run in the #Vikings' base defense today with the team giving Za'Darius Smith a few snaps off.
#Vikings DL Jonathan Bullard is questionable to return with an elbow injury #MINvsNYJ
Officials just sent off CB Akayleb Evans after that collision. Evans just returned this week from a concussion. Duke Shelley has replaced him.
The toughness of the Minnesota Vikings shows both on the field and with their 10-2 record. They have a special type of resilience this season and it has shown in a multitude of ways.
One of the ways it has shown is how the defense has finished games this season. With Camryn Bynum’s interception on fourth down against the New York Jets, it marked the fourth time that they had clinched a game with a turnover with one coming in each month.
How many different ways have the #Vikings won close games
Garrett Bradbury is out of the medical tent. He has his helmet and is standing with the offensive line.
Alexander Mattison on a draw. 14-yard touchdown makes it 16-3 #Vikings.
Brian O'Neill on close-game mindset: "We're comfortable in those moments, just because we've been there. Ideally you want to win by more. But let's be honest, we're going to be in those situations again and [hopefully] we can keep handling it maturely and with laser focus."
Patrick Peterson was like "Screw blocking, give me the ball!"
Cousins again can't step into a throw and takes a bit hit. But the ball is so short that Jalen Reagor is able to come back to it for the 38-yard play. Cousins is getting battered but is hanging in.
Blake Brandel got the initial reps at left tackle during warmups here -- as expected -- but Oli Udoh is rotating with the starters as well. Coach Kevin O'Connell said Friday that Udoh could get some reps while the Vikings patch things together until Christian Darrisaw returns.
The Minnesota Vikings have activated someone from the practice squad each week. For week 13, they activated linebacker William Kwenkeu for both the second consecutive and second overall week.

The move will provide the Vikings with extra linebacker depth as they face the stout rushing attack of the New York Jets
In his first game back from suffering a concussion against the Buffalo Bills back on November 13th, things didn’t quite go as planned for Akayleb Evans.
He had been playing relatively well bot hin coverage and his tackling was solid as well.
After getting hit hard by his own teammate while covering Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson, Evans was sent off the field to be evaluated for a concussion per ESPN’s Kevin Seifert.

Without left tackle Christian Darrisaw, the Minnesota Vikings have been playing third-year pro Blake Brandel at the position. He has done a very serviceable job over the three games he has seen extensive playing time, but has it been enough?
During pregame warmups, Oli Udoh was seen rotating in with the first-team offensive line with Brandel.

The Minnesota Vikings released their inactives list and for the second-consecutive week, the list is headlined by All-Pro caliber left tackle Christian Darrisaw who is still in concussion protocol.

We knew on Friday that both Darrisaw and tight end Ben Ellefson would be out on Sunday afternoon. The activation of Ellefson was more about his practice window expiring than him actually being 100% ready
