The Vikings know they can't afford any losses right now. They'll have a home crowd fired up by Randy Moss' return, and it will be an otherwise even matchup. The Vikings have some optimism, even if things are going awry. The Cowboys can move the ball, but they often leave a ton of points on the board. The Vikings will run the ball well, with Adrian Peterson breaking 2-3 medium-to-long ones, and sting the Cowboys' secondary a few times with big plays. In the end, their better kicking game will be the difference.
Prediction: Vikings 27, Cowboys 24
