Minnesota will likely generate some turnovers

So far this year, there has only been one game in which the Vikings haven’t been able to force their opponent to turn the ball over at least once. This is actually the third time since Mike Zimmer was hired in 2014 that Minnesota has been able to generate at least 14 takeaways in their first nine matchups of a season.

This week, the Vikings will look to continue generating turnovers against a Cowboys team that has given away the football to their opponent at least once in six of their last seven games.

Throw in the fact that Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott has thrown an interception in six of his eight starts this year and Minnesota could be in line for some easy scoring opportunities on Sunday.

In a matchup that figures to come down to the final drive or two, winning the turnover battle will likely play a large factor in which team comes out on top. Based on how things have gone so far this season for both teams, the Vikings appear to have the best chance to emerge with the most takeaways on Sunday night.
