pluck or pluck: I will try minnesota. I could probably go either way on this one, though; It should be a competitive game and a fun game to watch. Either way, the Vikings are on a seven-game winning streak and have scored 20 or more points in each of those games. Minnesota totaled 481 yards (147 rushing) and 24 first downs against a very strong Bills team and had an impressive second half win.
As for Dallas, they had the Packers on the ropes in their last practice until a meltdown in the fourth quarter. The Cowboys still led with 421 total yards and 24 first downs, but they also racked up nine penalties, two picks and 5 of 15 breakups on third down attempts. I love that Dallas can be competitive here as well, with Minnesota covered in a tight game.
