11. Dallas Cowboys (5-4)
Recap: The Dallas Cowboys fell behind early to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night, but were able to recover in the second quarter and trailed just 17-14 going into the half. The Vikings would strike first in the second half with a field goal to take a six-point lead, but the Cowboys answered back with a touchdown to take a 21-20 lead midway through the third quarter. A two-yard touchdown run by Dalvin Cook and a two-point conversion that followed at the end of the third quarter staked the Vikings to a seven-point lead that the Cowboys ultimately weren’t able to overcome the rest of the way.
Outlook: Dallas had a chance to make a statement with a win over the Vikings, but failed to do so. With the loss, the Cowboys now sit dead-even with the Eagles at 5-4 and only tie-breakers keep them atop the NFC East. Dallas will hit the road in Week 11 to take on the Detroit Lions with the Eagles breathing down their neck.
