Minnesota (6-3) at Dallas (5-3)
When: Sunday, November 10th, 2019
Where: AT&T Stadium,
Time: 8:20 ET | TV: NBC
Opening Odds: Dallas -3/47
The Minnesota Vikings have blown through NFC East opponents, beating the Washington Redskins, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles all by at least 10 points, but will face the division’s best this Sunday night. The Vikings travel to first place Dallas to take on the Cowboys in their second of five prime time games this season. The Cowboys have already played three night games with another scheduled for Thursday night December 5th in Chicago. This could be a playoff preview as Minnesota trails the Green Bay Packers by a game in the NFC North, while the Cowboys hold a slim half-game edge over the Eagles in the East. Dallas has rebounded from a three-game losing streak to post lopsided victories over a pair of division opponents, including a 37-18 victory at the New York Giants on Monday night. Minnesota’s impressive four-game winning streak was snapped last Sunday with a 26-23 loss at Kansas City. It’s the first meeting between the teams since Week 12 of the 2016 season when Dallas won 17-15 in Minneapolis. Dak Prescott threw for a touchdown and Zeke Elliott rushed for a score in that one. The home team is 5-1 ATS in the past six meetings with the under cashing five times in that span. The odds for this game over at Premier is Dallas -3 with a total of 48, up a point from the opening line of 47.
Kirk Cousins threw three TD passes for the Vikings last week in the loss to Kansas City but completed just 19-of-38 and is now 0-10-1 as the Vikings quarterback when trailing at any point in the fourth quarter. He does boast a 123.5 passer rating in his last three on the road, throwing nine TD passes and zero interceptions. NFL rushing leader Dalvin Cook was held to 71 yards on 21 carries, but the Vikings still rank third in the NFL in rushing offense at 153 yards a contest. Cook has nine touchdowns and an NFL-leading 894 yards on the season. No. 1 receiver Adam Thielen returned after missing a game with a hamstring injury but then aggravated it in the first quarter and has been ruled out for this week. Minnesota ranks sixth in the league with 28.0 sacks and have the eighth ranked defense overall, against the pass, and versus the run. The Vikings have a home game with Denver next week before finally getting their bye.
Elliott rumbled all over the Giants on Monday night, recording 139 yards on 23 carries, while Prescott threw for 257 yards and three scores, including a 45-yard TD to Amari Cooper. Prescott is averaging 297.5 yards and completing 69.6 percent of his passes – both career highs – as he leads an offense that tops the NFL with 436.8 yards per contest. Cooper, the team leader with 701 yards and six touchdown receptions, was diagnosed with a bruised knee that prevented him from practicing Thursday but he is expected to play Sunday. The Cowboys have now won eight straight games against their own division, giving them the edge in potential tiebreakers with the Eagles. The defense ranks fifth in the league in points allowed (17.8) and sixth overall in yards surrendered per game (318.1). Dallas will hit the road for their next two games – at Detroit and New England.
Dallas has played much better at home and the Vikings are a miserable 0-9-1 in their last 10 road games against teams with winning records. The Cowboys have momentum after two blowout wins and should be able to win and cover here.
