The Minnesota Vikings scored a huge win in Buffalo last week but can they keep their momentum going against the Dallas Cowboys?

Anyone who doubts the Minnesota Vikings may have finally turned the corner last week. A 33-30 overtime win over the Buffalo Bills cemented their spot as a contender in the NFC and it feels like there is something special with this team.

Still, some national analysts and deep analytical sites don’t believe the Vikings are good enough to win the Super Bowl. That’s just fine with them and it sets them up well for their next test against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys are coming off an overtime thriller of their own but wound up on the wrong end of a 31-28 loss to the Green Bay Packers. After blowing a 14-point lead in that game, Dallas will be motivated to get back in the win column and keep pace in a tight NFC East race.

With the Vikings currently the second seed in the NFC and the Cowboys sitting in sixth, there is a chance these two teams could meet in the playoffs. Any playoff preview talk will be put on hold as we make our five bold predictions for Sunday’s matchup at U.S. Bank Stadium.
