The Dallas Cowboys (10-1) are the team to beat in 2016 after ripping of a current ten-game winning streak. The Minnesota Vikings (6-5) looked the part early in the season, but a four game skid has them on the bubble of playoff contention with five games to go.
To me, this game has all the makings of a trap game for the Cowboys. They are confident. They are beating everyone. The Vikings knows this and will bring everything they have defensively and should catch the young Cowboys team off guard.
The big question will be how Dak Prescott responds to being in a dogfight. The Vikings defense has struggled at times, but they can play at an elite level at other times. If they are one, we could be in for quite the upset today.
I’ve talked myself into this one: Vikings 23, Cowboys 20.
