Tonight, the Dallas Cowboys take on the Minnesota Vikings on NBC. Strangely enough, both of these teams also played last Thursday. The Cowboys won a big divisional game, which was their tenth straight win overall, to take a commanding 10-1 record lead in the NFC. The Vikings lost a key division battle to drop to 6-5 and fall behind the Detroit Lions. The offensive issues came up again in that game, and Sam Bradford threw a late interception that allowed Detroit to kick the game-winning field goal in regulation.
Eventually, something has to give and Dallas will lose a game. The Vikings are capable of winning in any given week if their defense is lights on. However, I’ll continue to trust Dallas’ offense to control the line of scrimmage and have no reason to believe that Minnesota will have some form of offensive explosion. Cowboys 23, Vikings 17
