Cowboys 31, Vikings 27

“I missed both of these teams last week. The Cowboys will get O-lineman La'el Collins back and wideout Michael Gallup may not be far behind. The Vikings' run defense has been a problem most of the season, and losing a resurgent Patrick Peterson will hurt the secondary. While I love Mike Zimmer's defensive flexibility, Mike McCarthy is the one here that is aware he's running an offense-first team. I trust the Cowboys to know who they are and stay aggressive, at least until the final two minutes. This should be a great game on Twitter. ”...

“Dallas cornerback Trevon Diggs will make it seven straight games with an interception. When he does, he will make NFL history. No player has picked off a pass in the first seven games of a season. Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has been intercepted in each of his last four games at home. He has thrown 17 touchdowns and five interceptions in his career against the Cowboys, but he has not been intercepted in two games against Dallas since joining Minnesota”...

“ Expect a high-scoring affair in what could be the best game of Week 8. Dallas is averaging a league-best 34.2 points per game compared to Minnesota's 24.5 (14th) -- and with a host of high-end skill players on both offenses, it could very well take 40 points for one team to emerge victorious. Both franchises emerge in Week 8 coming off a bye, but the Cowboys are more banged up than the Vikings. With quarterback Dak Prescott recovering from a calf injury, Dallas hopes its dominant offensive line can withstand the No. 1 pass-rush in the NFL.”...
