Will the Dallas Cowboys Defense End Their Turnover Drought at the Vikings?

    For the most part, the 2016 have been on the right side of historic achievements. Rookies and have this team playing tonight for their 11th straight win, already a franchise record.

    The Dallas has seemed like an after thought at times thanks to this high-flying , and because the team is finding ways to win even when the defense struggles, but 's unit has set a record that they'll look to end as soon as possible over the last four weeks.

    So, could Dallas' trip to Minnesota end with the Cowboys taking the ball away from and Co.?

    The match ups are certainly favorable.

    The Cowboys will welcome back SS in this game, who was playing some inspired football prior to his arm . Often criticized for his range in coverage skills, Church had the clutch interception of in the end zone back in a week 2 road win.

    Cousins, throwing against a Dallas defense without Church on the field, put up 449 passing yards on in a loss to the Cowboys – facing little pressure from the much-maligned Cowboys front four.

    The Vikings have seen Sam Bradford sacked 26 times this season. In six consecutive games prior to Thanksgiving in Detroit, Bradford was sacked at least twice, and threw two interceptions during that stretch.

    The QB who still plays at about the level we would expect from an Eagles player former Eagles also threw the game-ending interception against the Lions, a direct result of the pressure he's faced paired with some of the poor decision making he's displayed.

    The strength of the Cowboys is on the interior, with defensive tackles , , , and rookie all rotating meaningful snaps and playing well. If they can get in the face of Bradford consistently, he will be much more susceptible to toss a pass that is caught by a player wearing the better .

    Lastly, it appears that will find his way back to the active roster for this game with out. This would make the Cowboys linebackers squad (who's intercepted Bradford before), (who played his at Minnesota), and Nzeocha – who recorded an interception back in the Cowboys' opener against the LA Rams.

    The Cowboys defense is going to be flying around tonight, making the plays that have seen all season long from this scrappy unit in front of a national audience. At some point, they're going to steal the ball away and give Prescott and Elliott an extra possession.
