What to Know

The Minnesota Vikings are staying on the road on Sunday, facing off against the Dallas Cowboys at 8:20 p.m. ET at AT&T Stadium. Both teams have allowed few points on average (Minnesota 17.56, Dallas 17.75), so any points scored will be well earned.

It was all tied up 10-10 at halftime, but Minnesota was not quite Kansas City’s equal in the second half when they met last week. The Vikings fell just short of Kansas City by a score of 26-23. Minnesota’s defeat came about despite a quality game from QB Kirk Cousins, who passed for 220 yards and three TDs on 38 attempts.

Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the matchup between Dallas and the New York Giants was still a pretty decisive one as Dallas wrapped it up with a 37-18 victory. RB Ezekiel Elliott and QB Dak Prescott were among the main playmakers for the Cowboys as the former picked up 139 yards on the ground on 23 carries and the latter passed for 257 yards and three TDs on 35 attempts.

Dallas’ win lifted them to 5-3 while Minnesota’s loss dropped them down to 6-3. A couple defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Cowboys rank second in the league when it comes to passing touchdowns allowed, with only seven on the season. As for the Vikings, they enter the contest with only two rushing touchdowns allowed, good for best in the league. We’ll find out if either of these strengths ends up making the difference in the game.
