The Minnesota Vikings will play the Dallas Cowboys on Halloween night in what surely will be a fun game to watch. A battle of star running backs, Sophomore receivers, and revitalized defenses. A challenge to determine if the Cowboys are contenders or pretenders.

What to watch for the Vikings

With Dalvin Cook at full strength and a well rested Vikings team coming off their bi, the Vikings should be able to pound the rock. At 3-3, this game will be important in terms of the playoff race. The Vikings will be looking to make a statement in the Bank. The player to watch for is Justin Jefferson, the matchup with Trevon Diggs will be a good one to watch. Jefferson will either make or break the offense.

What to watch for the Cowboys

With Dak Prescott expected to play, the 5-1 Cowboys are looking to prove their skill matches their record in a loud U.S. Bank Stadium. The  player to watch for them is Ezekiel Elliott. With Elliott being on and off this season, he will be crucial in their offense.

Hot Take and Final Prediction

  1.  The Vikings will have 400+ yards of total offense with no turnovers.
  2. Zeke and Amari Cooper will both go for 100+ yards.
  3. Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson will combine for 3+ touchdowns and 175+ yards

In the end, this game will be a close shootout. But I have the Vikings winning 38-35 in a close, offense oriented battle.
