The Dallas Cowboys and Tony Romo return to the stadium where they lost in disappointing fashion to Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings for an October 17th rematch. The Dallas Cowboys and Tony Romo have to look at this game as a chance for vindication but Brett Favre has a much better chance of duplicating his win over the Dallas Cowboys now that he has Randy Moss in the fold.
Minnesota Vikings Offense vs Dallas Cowboys Defense
An offense that includes the most prolific passer in the NFL and the most prolific wide receiver in the NFL is good enough to beat most teams. Add one of the greatest running backs in Adrian Peterson to the combination of Brett Favre and Randy Moss and it is hard to contain this exciting offense. The Minnesota Vikings can soften up a defense by running Peterson and rookie Toby Gerhart and then they can air it out deep to Randy Moss or Percy Harvin on deep out routes.
The Dallas Cowboys defense is strong enough to hold down most offenses in the NFL but this may be asking a bit much from the Dallas Cowboys offense on the road. The Dallas Cowboys offense was manhandled by the Tennessee Titans and they appeared out of shape towards the end of their game. Things will not be easier for the Dallas Cowboys when they come up against one of the best wide receivers and the best running back in the NFL. Minnesota Vikings offense has a decided edge over the Dallas Cowboys defense.
Minnesota Vikings Defense vs Dallas Cowboys Offense
Tony Romo has a potent offense with the Dallas Cowboys to use against the Minnesota Vikings but he will be under pressure from the outset of this game. Romo has never been a quarterback that responds well to a pressure defense and he has turned in some of his worst performances in situations similar to this game against the Minnesota Vikings. Romo was on his back much of the day against the Tennessee Titans in that loss and in this game against the Minnesota Vikings he can expect more of the same.
The Minnesota Vikings defense is stifling against the run and they aren’t bad against the pass either. Look for the Minnesota Vikings to crank up the pressure on Tony Romo and keep him off balance much like they did against Romo in their NFL Playoff game last season in Minneapolis. The defensive edge in this game goes to the Minnesota Vikings over the Dallas Cowboys.

The Las Vegas Hilton Superbook has installed the Minnesota Vikings as a home favorite of 2.5 points over the Dallas Cowboys. It is hard to bet against the Minnesota Vikings on their home field against a Dallas Cowboys team they defeated last season in the NFL Playoffs.
With both the Minnesota Vikings and the Dallas Cowboys so dominant on offense the key to this game will come down to the two teams defenses. The Minnesota Vikings front defensive line is better than the Dallas Cowboys and this could be the difference in the game. Take the Minnesota Vikings -1.5 points over the Dallas Cowboys.
