The Cowboys vs Vikings live stream will begins at 4:25 p.m. ET/ 1:25 p.m. PT today (Nov. 22). 

It's game time and the Cowboys vs Vikings live stream will provide a serious challenge for Dallas, though we're not even talking about winning. Oddsmakers currently favor the Vikings by 7 points, so fans are just hoping that Dallas keeps things competitive.

That being said, this NFL live stream is an opportunity for Dallas prove they can compete in a lackluster NFC East despite key injuries. The 2-7 Cowboys had a bye week to rest up before their visit to Minneapolis.

The Vikings' 4-5 record belies their growing strength as the season progresses. Climbing out of a 1-5 hole before their bye week, the Vikings have returned to win three games in a row. And even the earlier part of the season wasn't as bad as it looks: Minnesota lost by just a single point to both the Seahawks and the Titans.

The Vikikns are coming off a short week, having just defeated Chicago on Monday night. Now Minnesota has the benefit of getting to play at home.

The biggest difference between the teams in this NFL live stream is that Minnesota has a solid passing solution, whereas injury and mismanagement have thrown Dallas into disarray. Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins certainly has a mixed record. Seventeen touchdown passes is impressive, while 11 interceptions is a bit embarrassing. 

Meanwhile, Andy Dalton is expected to return in this game after suffering a concussion in week 7.

Cowboys vs Vikings live streams in the US

In the US, Cowboys vs Vikings is going to be broadcast on FOX, which is available with most cable packages and on two of our favorite streaming services fuboTV and Sling TV. The game starts at 4:25 p.m. ET/ 1:25 p.m. PT Sunday, November 22.

NFL week 11 games

If FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network have typically been enough to get you all the football you need, you could rely on Sling (which doesn't include CBS or NFL RedZone). 

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $45 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $59.99 per month.

Sling TV

If you can stand to miss CBS games, Sling TV provides a middle ground. The $45 per month Sling Orange + Blue package has FOX affiliates for this game, as well as local NBC affiliates and ESPN.
