Fact-Check: 3 things to know when the Cowboys play the Vikings

    When the clock reads 3:25 p.m. CT on everyone's watches, TVs, and smartphones, the will battle the in a massive Week 11 matchup.

    With a lot of hype around this game, you could make a strong argument that this could be the game of the week — and a possible NFC playoff between the two.

    So with that in mind and to prepare everyone for the game, I wanted to try something new and give you all three cold-hard facts to know. Expect to hear about a QBs record versus the opposing team, the all-time between the two, and a who will try to extend a record.

    1. Kirk Cousins is 2-8 against the Dallas Cowboys all-time.

    When Minnesota Vikings quarterback takes the field against the Cowboys, it will be his 11th time he faces the Boys. While that's an interesting feat to some, it makes it more entertaining that Cousins is 2-8 all-time versus the Cowboys.

    Since his Washington days, Cousins has struggled against the Boys, and it used to be marked as a guaranteed win by Cowboy fans when they knew he was coming to town.

    Now with the Vikings, his abysmal record continued, and it will undoubtedly be a storyline coming into this game. Don't be surprised if he uses that as motivation.

    2. The Cowboys lead the all-time series against the Vikings, 18-15.

    According to The Football Database, the Cowboys lead the all-time series 18-15, with the Vikings' last win coming in 2019. (Cousins' second victory against the Boys)

    Last year, we saw beat the Vikings on their home turf, and there's no doubt they are using that as motivation. While both teams look different from last season, this game should come down to the wire.

    Since 2013, the winning team between the two won by either two, three, or four points. Prepare yourself to watch until the end.

    The Cowboys have the firepower on both sides to compete with the Vikings and are surprisingly favored. That isn't a knock on the Boys, but the Vikings are sizzling-hot right now. And if they overlook the Vikings or fail to stop the run again, it could be a long day for them.

    3. Cousins has thrown a touchdown in 39 consecutive games.

    According to NFL on , Cousins has thrown a touchdown in 39 consecutive games, and he has a good shot to extend his record. Beyond , there is a dropoff in the Cowboys' cornerback room, and they will have their hands full guarding the Vikings' WR corps.

    Despite Diggs holding Jefferson to two catches on 21 yards last year, Jefferson will eventually find the end zone with the way he has been playing this season. Besides Jefferson, the Vikings still have , Adam Thielen, T.J. Hockenson, and K.J Osborn, who can all score.

    Look for Cousins to make it 40 consecutive games.

    What is your point? Past performances mean nothing. Stop looking in the rear view mirror and focus on the road ahead. Time to also start playing like a team going into the playoffs. GO COWBOYS!

    Hey Rickety, thanks for the comment. I agree with you on past performances mean nothing, but I was just providing three things you or others may have not known! They need a victory here to get the ball rolling, so let’s hope it happens! Go Cowboys! 🙂
