Cowboys @ Vikings Prediction

The Vikings have dominated the Cowboys in recent years, but that was before the Bill Parcells came aboard. The big talk has been centered around the Vikings Moss...can we stop him, how do we stop him, can we win at Minnesota? Many questions, with many possibilities.

The media has overshadowed our potential to light it up on offense as well. With an accurate QB in Vinny and a pretty good core of receivers we could very well go toe-to-toe against the Vikes offensively. Remember at the beginning of the year, the Cowboys were actually ranked #1 in total offense for the first couple of weeks - not the Rams, not the Vikes, it was the Cowboys. All of this without Vinny, George, or Keyshawn.

The Vikings defense is mediocre and is very capable of giving up a lot of points.

I predict that we will see a pretty good showing by our offense. The Vikings cannot shutdown our various array of weapons. Can they cover Glenn, and can they stop Keyshawn, what about AB? Can they stop Witten from making key 3rd down conversions? How about slowing down our DEEP backfield. You think the Vikings have a deep RB core, maybe, but I like our depth better.

We'll shove Richie Anderson down their throat, along with George, we'll use Julius to make people miss, and Lee will hit the line and leave their D looking back at a dust cloud - that's how good our depth is at RB. Ball control and time control is Parcells type football, and we definitely have the personnel to run on them all day long.

Don't count our receivers out either, we are capable of making plays through the air with playmakers like Keyshawn and Jason Witten with the clutch city catches.

On defense, we will retain the #1 Defense in the league again this year. Expect to see a lot of different looks from our defense. stunts, blitzes, zone blitzes, safety blitz, nickel and dime packages, we'll see a 3-4 set to throw them off, we could see Bradie James and Kalen Thornton making plays in a 3-4 lineup. Trust me, the Vikings will have their hands full on the line of scrimmage with Glover, Ellis, Wiley and Eaton. You want speed and muscle on defense, well, we have it.

Moss will make some catches, but its going to take more than Moss to beat us this time around. We are a team to be reckoned with.

Cowboys 27 Vikings 24

    This is the most biased, uninformed "article" i have ever heard. You are on drugs if you think the cowboys actually have a deeper backfield than Minnesota. And no...the cowboys do not have a potent offence. Vinny is just as likely to break an aging hip as throw more than one td. Keyshawn will do nothing. Julius jones is hurting and will be limited. Throw in the crowd noise the metrodome is known for and it coould lead to a blowout in favour of te vikes.
