Cowboys’ Next Opponent, The Minnesota Vikings, Take On The Bears On Monday Night

    Coming off a , the will take on the this Sunday. But fans will get a unique chance to watch Dallas' next opponent on Monday Night this week, when the Vikings take on their division rival Bears.

    The 3-5 Vikings got off to an abysmal 1-5 start, but have won two straight division games to get themselves back in striking position.

    Offensively it's been a weird, but productive year for the Vikings. Minnesota ranks 7th in offensive DVOA and 8th overall in EPA per play this season, led by and their dynamic rushing attack. Cook is already on the verge of 1,000 yards rushing this season, and has scored 12 rushing touchdowns through 8 games. Insane.

    is still…Kirk Cousins. Overall he can be an efficient quarterback operating within a play action passing , but when asked to do to much as a dropback passer we've seen him fail time and time again.Kirk Cousins On QB Dak Prescott: "Don't Be Afraid Of The Tag"

    Not for a lack of weapons, though.

    Adam Thielen remains a dangerous receiving target, and the rookie has emerged as stud. Jefferson is averaging nearly 80 receiving yards per game, and has become the big play option in their .

    Minnesota's problems this season have mostly stemmed from the defensive side of the ball. They rank 20th in EPA per play and 19th by DVOA against the pass. Their has struggled mightily at times, and is heavily banged up heading into this week's game with Chicago.

    should keep a close eye on this Vikings tonight. If they can't slow down and company, then even may be able to put up some numbers next week.

    Despite their 3-5 record, the Vikings are a dangerous team who is heavily favored going into this game with the Cowboys. After a slow start against a tough schedule, the Vikings look primed to string some wins together and make a playoff push.
