Vikings vs Cowboys: The Vikings and Cowboys, two top teams in the deeply talented NFC, meet in Arlington, Texas, on Sunday night in a feature game of Week 10. As we pass midseason, healthy, balanced teams will begin to separate and display advantage.
The Cowboys enter this game as home chalk off a short week in which they beat the division-rival Giants on the road Monday night.
Although the Dallas offense has been realizing success, a closer look shows the Cowboys have competed against the 32nd-ranked schedule of opposing defenses and the 30th-ranked schedule of opposing offenses thus far in 2019, according to Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders.
The Vikings arrive as the most balanced team in the NFC on both sides of the ball. They rate in the top 10 in each DVOA (defense-adjusted value over average) offensive and defensive category, and top 15 in special teams.
An early Vikings lead will allow Kirk Cousins and company to work their offense from a ball-control and play-action perspective. This is mandatory to the Vikings success Sunday night.
The play: Vikings +3 in a tightly contested, low-scoring slobberknocker. And don’t forget to invest a pittance on the Vikings on the money line at +150.
The Dallas Cowboys look as if they have regained their form as the second half of the regular season begins. The Cowboys, winners of two consecutive games, will try to extend their winning streak to three when they face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football (5:20 p.m. PT/8:20 p.m. ET, NBC) in Week 10.
