It is Week 12 and that means a day filled with food, family, and fantasy football. This terrific Thursday gets capped off by an interesting battle between two playoff contenders. The FullTime Fantasy Thursday Night Football Preview: Week 12 breaks down the fantasy and betting trends you need to know.

Minnesota hit rock bottom last week by getting blown out at home. The Vikings hope they can rebound on a short rest week. But, things won't be easy against a New England squad that is trending up.

The 8-2 Vikings are mere 2.5-point home favorites. This tells us that Vegas thinks the Patriots are the better team on a neutral field. With an over/under of just 42.5, points should be at a premium in this Thursday's capper.
