The NFL allows teams to only be scheduled five prime-time games a season, although some late-season games can be flexed into the Sunday night window. This is the fourth of five for the Cowboys and their third in a row. The also will play Thursday night on Dec. 5 in Chicago. The Vikings are scheduled for five as well and it’s their second so far. Minnesota has had it easy with the NFC East this season, beating the Washington Redskins, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles all by at least 10 points.

This could be a playoff preview – the franchises have met in the post-season a handful of times — as Minnesota is in the hunt for the NFC North title and barring injury should be good enough to earn at least a Wild-Card spot. Dallas leads the NFC East and barring injury should be considered the favourite to win that.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

It’s the first meeting between the teams since Week 12 of the 2016 season when Dallas won 17-15 in Minneapolis. Dak Prescott threw for a touchdown and Zeke Elliott rushed for one. How long ago was that? Dez Bryant had a touchdown catch for Dallas and Minnesota’s quarterback then was Sam Bradford – both those guys are now out of the NFL. That 2016 Cowboys team was excellent and the Vikings were mediocre that year.

The home team is 5-1 ATS in the past six meetings. The under is 5-1 in those.

Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota’s four-game winning streak was snapped Sunday in a 26-23 loss in Kansas City. Harrison Butker tied it for the Chiefs on a 54-yard field goal with 2:30 left and then won it on a 44-yarder as time expired. Kirk Cousins threw three TD passes for the Vikings but completed just 19 of 38. He is now 0-10-1 as the Vikings quarterback when trailing at any point in the fourth quarter.

NFL rushing leader Dalvin Cook was held to 71 yards on 21 carries. No. 1 receive Adam Thielen returned after missing a game with a hamstring injury but then aggravated it in the first quarter and didn’t return. The Vikings are 3-12 ATS in their past 12 vs. teams with a winning record.

Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys were sluggish for a while off their bye Monday night but eventually knocked the rust off and beat the lousy New York Giants 37-18 to retain sole possession of first in the NFC East. Dallas almost never loses when Elliott rushes for 100 yards and he had 139 on 23 carries. Prescott threw for 257 yards and three scores, including a 45-yard TD to Amari Cooper.

The Cowboys have now won eight straight games against their own division. Top linebacker Leighton Vander Esch sat Monday with a neck injury. Dallas is 0-5 ATS in its past five vs. teams with a winning record.
