The 4-4 Dallas Cowboys will face off against the 1-6 Minnesota Vikings this Sunday at AT&T Stadium. The Vikings are coming into Arlington on a three-game losing skid with major questions surrounding their quarterback position. The Cowboys are fresh off a heartbreaking, last minute loss to the Detroit Lions. Both teams are looking for a win this Sunday to boost locker room morale. Here are 10 players to watch during this matchup:

What makes him a player to watch? Allen was almost traded away this week, as his name was the most publicized heading into the NFL trade deadline on Tuesday. But his enormous contract ultimately made any attempt to move him impossible. Allen is in the final year of a six-year, $73.260 million deal. The 10-year veteran has come on as of late. In his last three games, Allen has recorded 11 total tackles and 3.5 sacks. It will be interesting to see how successful he and the Minnesota Vikings defensive line can be against the Cowboys’ young offensive line, who just lost veteran All-Pro guard Brian Waters for the season due to a triceps injury.
