Guide to Game Day: Vikings-Jaguars Week 13

The Vikings (5-6) and Jaguars (1-10) are scheduled to meet for the seventh time in a regular-season game and first instance at U.S. Bank Stadium at noon (CT) Sunday.

The game is presented by Xcel Energy, which has supported Vikings Table, the Minnesota Vikings Foundation's charity food truck since its launch in 2019. Xcel Energy and Vikings Table recently continued their community work by visiting Mt. Airy Boys & Girls Club in St. Paul.

Week 13 also features the My Cause My Cleats campaign that allows players to support causes that are important to them with custom-painted footwear.

View photos of which causes Vikings players are supporting with their one-of-a-kind cleats in this season's 'My Cause My Cleats' campaign.

Vikings Playbook

In previous seasons, the Vikings Playbook has been available to all fans in U.S. Bank Stadium. This year, the team will offer the Playbook free at all 11 Minneapolis-St. Paul Hy-Vee locations. The Star Tribune will also package a set number in Sunday newspapers for every Vikings home game.

Pick up your print copy or view the digital version at or in the Vikings mobile app.

The Week 13 Playbook cover story features Kirk Cousins, who was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his impressive showing last week against Carolina. Cousins led the Vikings to two fourth-quarter touchdown drives, erasing an 11-point deficit in a 28-27 win over the Panthers.

Cousins describes how his Under Center with Kirk Cousins podcast enables him to learn more about teammates and pass along their stories. Cousins hosted sportscaster Dan Patrick on his pod and was a guest on The Dan Patrick Show.

The quarterback delivered a November to remember with an NFL-best passer rating of 124.3. He completed 105 of 145 passes for 1,293 yards with 12 touchdowns during the month.

To borrow from Patrick's prior life as a SportsCenter anchor, Cousins was "dare I say, en fuego." He is looking to continue that in December.

U.S. Bank Hometown Hero: All Square

The U.S. Bank Hometown Heroes program honors individuals who have gone to extraordinary measures to make positive differences in the community. If you would like to nominate someone, visit

Sunday's Hometown Hero is All Square, the Minneapolis-based nonprofit social enterprise that launched in September 2018 with the mission "to ensure that those impacted by the criminal justice system have the support and opportunities they need not simply to subsist but, more importantly, to become our country's future leaders, business owners, legal practitioners and entrepreneurs."

All Square accomplishes this through its craft grilled cheese restaurant that provides economic opportunities, as well as the All Square "Institute and Dream Lab" that offers customized support and its emerging Civil Rights firm. Eric Kendricks surprised All Square this fall with a $250,000 grant from the Vikings Social Justice Committee. Kendricks, Shamar Stephen and K.J. Osborn are supporting All Square with their cleats.

Gjallarhorn: All Square Founder and CEO Emily Hunt Turner and Randall Smith, a former fellow, will sound the Gjallarhorn.

Smith graduated from All Square's fellowship program and has been instrumental in starting the Fellow & Fellow Alum Fund.

Hunt Turner is a Civil Rights attorney in Minneapolis with a background in housing, architecture and public policy. Her hope with All Square is to empower those who have been historically excluded from society while dismantling divides that are isolating and destabilizing communities.
