The Dallas Cowboys are back to say goodbye and the next one for them is a prime-time roadside clash against the Minnesota Vikings. Interestingly, Dallas visited Minnesota after their leave last season and in that game the Vikings were also coming back from their leave, which they are doing again this year. Sometimes history has a funny way of repeating itself.
This particular game went really well for the Cowboys after Mike McCarthy smashed watermelons as they headed to victory without their star quarterback under center. Dak Prescott is set to be in the fold this week following his calf injury in the team’s last game, a win over the New England Patriots, and in a perfect world, CeeDee Lamb will recreate the gravity-defying touchdown he had against Minnesota in his rookie season.
Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper and Dalton Schultz will also all be in the fold looking to make plays, and for what it’s worth, Michael Gallup returns to training this week, so he’s technically eligible to play. It could be that Dallas will see La’el Collins play for the first time since Week 1, as he returns from his five-game suspension.
Ideally, all of this should be enough to take out a Vikings team made up of Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook, and Justin Jefferson. The Minnesota defense will not have Patrick Peterson in this game since he is in the injured reserve.
