A day after Mike Zimmer was dismayed with parts of the Minnesota Vikings' offensive game plan during a 24-10 loss to the New England Patriots, the Minnesota coach cited a "lack of consistency" as to why the run game faltered on Sunday night.
In the fourth quarter, with Minnesota trying to assemble a comeback, the Vikings gained a first down. Following a fourth-quarter play on which the Vikings were awarded a first down on a controversial spot, Patriots safety Patrick Chung remained down on the field with an injury.
Thielen appeared to ignite the argument during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game in New England as Belichick mulled over whether or not to challenge a play that had given Minnesota's offense a first down with about nine minutes remaining.
However, it's a pretty safe bet that Bill Belichick will not be sending such a card to Adam Thielen.
The call on the field was upheld, so Belichick ended up losing his challenge. "I wasn't directing it toward him". 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. It's not cheating. There's no rule against it, from a guy going down. "So for me, I just lost my emotions". I let my emotions get the best of me, because it's a smart football play.

Notre Dame Commits React To Irish Playoff Bid In the other 2018 College Football Playoff semifinal, Notre Dame and Clemson , both undefeated, clash in the Cotton Bowl at 4 p.m. In that season, the Fighting Irish made it all the way to the National Championship but got crushed by Alabama 42-14.
"I just thought the play was cheap", Thielen said in the Gillette Stadium visitors' locker room.
Richardson said playing from behind all game was one reason.
"Yeah, obviously, I got to keep my cool", Thielen told reporters after the game, via the Vikings' official website. He has the ability to get his hands on the ball and judge the ball and make good plays on the ball, like he did on I think it was the third down play where he kind of went up over Robinson's back to get his hands on the ball and bat it away. You say something and there is just an emotional reaction. "I think when they went up 17-10, it was still a seven point game". Thielen entered the game averaging 8.5 receptions and 103.5 receiving yards per game, but he was only able to catch five passes for 28 yards against the Patriots. This was a better showing against a team, in the Vikings, with postseason aspirations of its own. Cousins threw for a modest 201 yards on 32-for-44 passing.
