Dallas at Minnesota Preview

The Dallas Cowboys come into this game as one of the hottest teams in the NFL Playoffs and travel to Minnesota to take on a Vikings teams that has some what struggled down the stretch of the season. All the questions will come up if the Vikings lose on Sunday will this be Brett Farve’s last game of his career, well who knows really. After the Cowboys went down to New Orleans to play then undefeated Saints and won the game, the Cowboys both on offense and defense have taken it to the next level. On defense the Cowboys will need DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer to have great games pressuring Farve and still being able to play the run and not allow Adrian Peterson to have a great game. With the Vikings it to the same thing they need their front four to play outstanding as well to be able to win the game. Vikings defensive end Jared Allen will need to have a big game and that goes for defensive tackle Kevin Williams as well.

The Cowboys will need another good game from quarterback Tony Romo and his receivers. The Vikings must get pressure on him, because they don’t have the talent to be able to cover the likes of tight end Jason Witten, wide receivers Mile Austin, Roy Williams and Patrick Crayton one on one.

I think this game will come down to what teams pass rushers will be able to get to the other teams quarterback and force them into mistakes. Because of that and how well the Cowboys defense overall has been playing the last month of the season I see that DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer being the difference in a Cowboy’s victory.
