The Dallas Cowboys (5-1) come out of their bye week to face the Minnesota Vikings (3-3) for Sunday Night Football. Kickoff from U.S. Bank Stadium is set for 8:20 p.m. The Cowboys have lingering questions as to whether QB Dak Prescott will be on the field after suffering a calf injury in Week 6. It could tilt the balance of power in this game if Prescott can’t go.
The Vikings are 3-3, but two of their losses were suspect – an overtime loss to the Cincinnati Bengals where a RB Dalvin Cook fumble came with Minnesota in scoring position and a one-point road loss to the Arizona Cardinals on a missed field goal as time expired. The Vikings are playing as well offensively as they have since QB Kirk Cousins arrived on the team and will be a team to be reckoned with as they begin a brutal stretch of their 2021 schedule.
