NFL playoff picture, 2017: Dallas Cowboys could have home field advantage clinching scenario in Week 14

We break down the NFC playoff picture following the Cowboys Thursday Night Football win over the Minnesota Vikings. The Dallas Cowboys edged the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football, securing a 17-15 win and improving to 11-1. The Vikings gave them a tough time, with Dallas never getting ahead more than eight points, and falling behind twice. But a Dak Prescott touchdown pass to Dez Bryant followed by a Dan Bailey field goal gave them a 17-9 lead and just barely enough breathing room. Sam Bradford found Jerick McKinnon for a score with 25 seconds left, but the Vikings were unable to...

Cowboys @ Vikings: Don’t Let Minnesota Do “Special” Things To Win The Game

There is a third phase of football that must be discussed. When the Dallas Cowboys play the Minnesota Vikings tonight, there are a couple of prominent storylines everyone talks about. The Cowboys offense is much better than the Vikings offense, and the Vikings defense is superior to the Cowboys defense. But there is a third phase of football, and if the Cowboys aren’t careful, it could play a major role in the game. We’re talking about special teams. The Vikings excel at scoring points or setting up field position with the kickoff and punt return units. The Vikings are one of five NFL...

Cowboys @ Vikings: The Two Franchises Have History Together

Hail Mary, The Great Train Robbery, there’s a little history between these teams. The Dallas Cowboys have history with quite a few franchises around the NFL. Of course there is the long history with their NFC East brethren. You can also count their historic battles with the San Francisco 49ers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. But the Cowboys also have an odd little history with the Minnesota Vikings, some of it is on the field, but some of it is from off-the-field transactions, or non-transactions. Whether it’s the euphoria of the Herschel Walker trade in 1989, regrets about not drafting...

A Closer Look at Bishop Sankey

Yesterday the Vikings signed running back Bishop Sankey to the practice squad, a name familiar to most draftniks and diehard NFL fans. But Sankey is someone who many Vikings fans may not know. With a historically awful Vikings running game this season that is averaging only 2.8 yards per carry, does Sankey offer any light at the end of the tunnel? The short answer is: probably not. But here is his story so far. Bishop Sankey attended the University of Washington from 2011-2013 where he ran for 3,495 yards as a 2-year starter, averaging 5.4 yards per carry. The Huskies ran a...

Detroit Lions 16, Minnesota Vikings 13

On Thanksgiving Day, the Minnesota Vikings had an opportunity to take over first place in the NFC North. They ended the day the same way their first meeting with the Detroit Lions ended. Sam Bradford threw a backbreaking interception to Darius Slay with under a minute to play, and Matt Prater's 40-yard field goal gave the Detroit Lions a 16-13 victory over the Vikings. The Lions got on the board first, courtesy of a 2-yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford to Anquan Boldin, a score that capped a 12-play, 75-yard drive. Minnesota answered with a 12-play, 75-yard drive of their own that...
