Coach Mike Zimmer’s Minnesota Vikings are third in the NFC North Division table behind rivals Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears. The home team will take solace from last Sunday’s win over the Bears.
Meanwhile, Mike McCarthy’s first season with Dallas Cowboys is turning out to be a nightmare. In addition to Dak Prescott and Trevon Diggs, the Cowboys have been hit with multiple injuries in the build-up to this weekend’s clash at the US Bank Stadium. Here’s a detailed look at both teams, along with injury updates and Week 11 Game Day predictions.

The pressure is on Mike Zimmer to add to his team’s win tally against a hurting Dallas Cowboys outfit. Franchise quarterback Kirk Cousins, in particular, will be at the centre of attention as will rookie wide receiver Justin Jefferson. In addition to that, the pressure will be on experienced Vikings stars, WR Adam Thielen and RB Dalvin Cook.
Cook has been one of the best running backs in the NFL this season. He has rushed for 950+ yards with 12 rushing touchdowns over the course of the last nine games. Minnesota Vikings fans will hope that their star player can add to that tally against a misfiring Cowboys defence on Sunday.
Can Mike McCarthy lead the Dallas Cowboys to a much-needed win?

Jerry Jones-owned Dallas Cowboys are currently sitting at the bottom of the NFC East Division table with just two wins from nine games. The Cowboys are winless since losing star quarterback Dak Prescott to a season-ending injury in Week 5. Backup quarterback Andy Dalton is set to return from a nasty concussion injury suffered in Week 6.
Pressure will be on veteran Cowboy stars, RB Ezekiel Elliott and WR Amari Cooper. Both these big names have underperformed in 2020. Can they silence their doubters with a strong display against the Vikings at the US Bank Stadium on Sunday?

Vikings vs Cowboys Prediction
Minnesota Vikings 35 – 20 Dallas Cowboys
We’re going to stick with a safe bet and go with coach Zimmer’s Minnesota Vikings for this tie. The NFC North big boys are certainly underperforming this season. However, many will agree that even they can outplay the tumultous Dallas Cowboys. Unless of course, there’s another surprise up Mike McCarthy’s sleeve.
