Minnesota Vikings Form
Form-wise, the Minnesota Vikings are looking strong on the back of seven consecutive wins. A 30-33 triumph over the Buffalo Bills last week extended their winning streak, leaving them 8-2 in their last 10 matches overall.
The offense has performed to its usual standards of late, putting up 28.0 points in the last five matches, which is on par with the 25.1 points average the Minnesota Vikings have achieved for this season. On the other side of the ball, the defense has been relatively average in the league recently. The hosts have given up 22.2 points in the previous five outings, which is more or less on par with the 21.2 points they’ve allowed per game over the course of the regular season.
The Minnesota Vikings are touted as a potential Super Bowl challenger for this season. While it’s still early days, things are going according to plan so far. The hosts hold the second seed in the NFC Conference, leaving them set for a spot in the January playoffs. Until then, the aim will be to strengthen their position by either maintaining or improving their current seeding.

The Dallas Cowboys continue to put up decent numbers in offense, scoring 28.0 points in their last five matches. Considering their season average is 23.4 points, this suggests the offensive unit remains as reliable as ever. A middle-of-the-pack defense, meanwhile, is what the Dallas Cowboys have to offer ahead of their latest road trip, with 18.2 points allowed across nine matches so far.
In 2021, the Dallas Cowboys came home in first place in the NFC East standings after going 12-6 across all games. The visitors naturally hope to go even better this season.
