We are twelve weeks into the season, and it’s still hard to believe that the Dallas Cowboys are the team with the best record in the NFL. They are the winners of 10 consecutive games and are looking to lock the division title and the home field advantage in the next couple of games.
Minnesota Vikings are in a little bit of trouble since they lost to the Lions last week on Thanksgiving Day. They are just one game behind them, but it’s actually two games. What do we mean by that? Well, if they finish with the same record as the Lions, the tiebreaker will go to the Detroit because they have beaten the Vikes twice this season.
This Vikings squad has won just one game since starting the season 5-0. They were the last undefeated team going into Week 7. Since then, they lost five games, including four in a row.
Dallas’ defense is not one of the best in the NFL, but they don’t have to worry about that in this match. Vikings’ offense has failed to impress ever since they started 5-0, running game is pretty shaky while Bradford’s weapons are either hurt, banged up or can’t get open. Besides that, Cowboys are hiding their weaknesses by running the football and being on the field not allowing opponents to attack them fully.
The offense is on the field while the defense is sitting on the sidelines and is not exposed. Minnesota’s defense is going to be the key. Can they stop the run? Can this defensive line win the battle at the line of scrimmage against this Cowboys O-line?
We don’t think the Vikings are going to win this division and we are picking the Dallas Cowboys to take this game on Thursday Night Football. Ezekiel Elliot hasn’t been stopped ever since Week 1 and Minnesota won’t do it either resulting in Dallas victory 27:14.
