The Cowboys (6-3) spoiled Mike McCarthy’s return to Lambeau field last week, and the veteran head coach had his hand in the mess.

Dallas blew a 14-point fourth quarter lead and allowed Aaron Rodgers and company to comeback and tie the game at 28 to force overtime. In the extra time the Cowboys faced a 4th-and-3 from the Green Bay 35-yardline. Instead of going for the lead with a 52-yard field goal attempt, McCarthy made the call to go for it. A broken play resulting in an incomplete pass later, the ball was back in Aaron Rodgers’ hands. Five plays later, the Packers handed the Cowboys their third loss of the season with a 28-yard field goal.

The loss marked the first time in the Cowboys' 62 year history that they blew a 14-point lead entering the fourth quarter. It was also Dallas’ first loss since the return of Dak Prescott from a broken thumb. ‘Dem boys are 2-2 in games started by Dak this year.

The Vikings (8-1) will have to come down from the immense high they experienced in Buffalo last week. Their 33-30 overtime win against the Bills consisted of a miraculous one-handed catch by Justin Jefferson to convert a 4th-and-18 play in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter, a fumble recovering in the end zone for a Vikings touchdown that put them in front, a game winning field goal and a game sealing interception by Patrick Pederson. That win, coupled with the Eagles' Monday night loss means the Vikings are now tied for the best record in the NFL.

With the season he is putting together, Vikings' wide receiver Justin Jefferson’s name has at least entered the chat when it comes to the MVP race. The 23-year-old leads the NFL with 117.8 receiving yards-per-game and has the most yards-per-catch (15.4) of any receiver with at least 60 catches this year.

This Dallas defense will have to be up to the challenge of stopping Jefferson or at least find a way to contain him. Despite last week’s outcome, the Cowboys still have one of the league’s top defensive units with Micah Parsons coming in with the fourth highest sack total (8) in the NFL and Trevon Diggs always a threat to come up with an interception.

The Action Network (opens in new tab) has the Dallas as 2-point road favorites against the Vikings.
