After their big win in Dallas in Week 10, what are some of the things the Minnesota Vikings must improve as they prepare for the Denver Broncos?

The Vikings are coming off of their biggest win of the season as they went on the road against a talented Dallas Cowboys team in primetime and came out with the victory. It was a harrowing game that came down to the wire, but the Vikings’ defense held strong when they had to and the team got a much-needed, deserving win.

As good as the victory was, there are still some areas of their game Minnesota can look to improve as they prepare for their next matchup in Week 11.

Not to say the Vikings were perfect on offense, but that side of the ball was humming all night long in Dallas and they really just need to keep on doing what they were doing for the future. There is nothing that really needs immediate fixing on Minnesota’s offense following their win over the Cowboys.

The same can’t be said for the Vikings on the defensive side of the football. Minnesota was missing some big-time starters on Sunday night in Linval Joseph and Trae Waynes and that may have factored into some of the struggles the defense had against Dallas.

The Vikings’ defense did well against Ezekiel Elliott and the rushing attack of the Cowboys, but Minnesota really struggled when it came to defending the pass.

So as they prepare to face the Denver Broncos in Week 11 at U.S. Bank Stadium, what are a few things Minnesota must improve before then?
