The Minnesota Vikings have been on a hot streak in the last three football games. They are welcoming the Dallas Cowboys who are on a four-game losing streak heading into Minnesota.

The Vikings have been relying on running back Dalvin Cook to win the last three games, including last week's "Monday Night Football" win over the Chicago Bears.

The Dallas Cowboys are coming into this game struggling on defense and offense. They're meeting a Minnesota Vikings team that will run the football the majority of the game. Dalvin Cook will look to have a big game against the Cowboys' run defense.
