Following their bye week, the Minnesota Vikings face a tough Dallas Cowboys team but should be able to get a win in Week 8.

The Minnesota Vikings are fresh off their bye week and looking to keep their winning ways going since they haven’t lost a game since Oct. 3. While that would be great to get another win in front of the crowd at U.S. Bank Stadium, this will be no easy task.

Currently sitting on top of the NFC East with a 5-1 record after, the Dallas Cowboys look like they are well on their way to cementing a playoff spot. They haven’t lost a game since the season opener when they pushed the returning Super Bowl champions to the limit in a highly entertaining game.

Dallas boasts an excellent roster full of talented players who can alter the flow of a game at a moment’s notice. Minnesota will have their hands full with a team that excels on both offense and defense.

Despite how good Dallas has been playing, the Minnesota Vikings will win on Sunday Night Football when the sun goes down and the lights come up on Halloween in front of a loud crowd in Minneapolis.

Here are the reasons the Vikings will win.
