The Minnesota Vikings will head back under the lights this week as they visit Jerry World for a Week 10 meeting with the Dallas Cowboys.
Coming off one of their most frustrating losses of the season, the Minnesota Vikings will try to regroup in Week 10 as they head down to Texas for a battle with the Dallas Cowboys. The leaders of the NFC East will present a tough challenge for the Vikings as they look to prove they are a legitimate team in the middle of a crowded NFC playoff picture.
The Cowboys come into the game with a record of 5-3 on the season and are coming off an effective (if uninspiring) victory over the New York Giants. With Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper on offense and a wrecking ball duo of Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith on defense, Dallas can pose plenty of problems for the Vikings or any team in a hurry.
With the Cowboys also 3-1 at home this season, this matchup poses a problem for the Vikings. The added bonus of this game being featured on Sunday Night Football also gives Minnesota some concern based on Kirk Cousins‘ rough track record in such games.
Either way, Sunday’s matchup should be another test to see if the Minnesota Vikings are for real. If they can come away with a victory, it will put them another step closer toward putting them in the driver’s seat for a playoff spot and potentially keep them within striking distance of the Green Bay Packers for the NFC North lead and the Seattle Seahawks for the fifth seed.
