5. Dallas Cowboys @ Minnesota Vikings (Sunday Night Football)

This is probably the least exciting primetime game for the Cowboys. These two teams faced off last year in week 11 without quarterback Dak Prescott. In a back and forth game, Dallas came out on top by a score of 31-28 led by running back Ezekiel Elliott who totaled 103 rushing yards.

The Cowboys and Vikings also faced off in 2019 on Sunday Night Football. Nonetheless, this time, the Vikings came out victorious by a score of 28-24. In the past two years, both games against Minnesota have been tight.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins has caused Dallas’s defense some trouble in the past two matchups. In those games, Cousins has totaled 534 passing yards, five passing touchdowns, and no interceptions combined.

This game can turn out to be an entertaining one. However, it isn’t as compelling as the other games on this list.
