Dallas Cowboys vs Minnesota Vikings: Week 11 Know Thy Enemy
The Dallas Cowboys are reeling from their overtime loss to the Green Bay Packers, but they can’t waste any time licking their wounds because now they are facing off against the hottest team in the NFL: the Minnesota Vikings. A Vikings team that just beat the Buffalo Bills in their own stadium. This Vikings team, high off this last victory, will not be overlooking the Cowboys who are two games back and a real threat in the NFC.
The Vikings bring a potent offense with the ability to run the ball and pass at will, and a defense with a bend but not break mentality with pass rushers and tough linebackers. If the Cowboys want to show how much of a fluke the loss to the Packers was last week, beating the hottest team in the NFL and adding a potential tie-breaking win would be a great start.
So let’s look at the Minnesota Vikings in this week’s “Know Thy Enemy”.
