Kirk Cousins is 2-7 against the Cowboys. He is the rival against whom he registers the most defeats in his career.
These are the reasons not to miss the match between Cowboys and Vikings:
The question we’re all asking ourselves right now is, will it play Dak prescott?
The quarterback suffered a calf injury on the last play of the victory over the New England Patriots on October 17 and you would think two weeks was more than enough to heal, but the fact that his availability is in doubt at that time. of repose speaks of a severity that could marginalize him even longer.
Yes Prescott can’t play, next turn is Cooper rush, who has completed a pass in the NFL, Will grier He is the No. 3 quarterback and although he has two starts of professional experience, he does not offer too many guarantees for Dallas.
While uncertainty tends to work against defenses, it is unlikely that Vikings feel really threatened on that side of the ball if Prescott it is not the owner. – Erick Cervantes Roon
