Cowboys Up: Surging Vikes Settle in at Home for 3 Straight
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings stumbled into their bye with a 1-5 record. That was their low-water mark of four games under the .500 mark for the first time in coach Mike Zimmer’s seven seasons.
Less than a month later, the Vikings are 4-5 with a legitimate path to the playoffs if they can maintain this post-bye momentum.
They host Dallas on Sunday, their first of three straight home games against losing teams.
The Cowboys are 2-7 and aiming for a similar post-bye bounce. They've lost four straight games but remain well in the NFC East race.
Kickoff Sunday is at 3:25 at an empty U.S. Bank Stadium. (TV: Fox, Radio: WJON AM 1240/95.3 FM)
