The Rundown: Minnesota Vikings vs Dallas Cowboys

By Zack Spears
PSDC Dallas Cowboys Insider

ARLINGTON – It’s game day in Cowboy Football Nation. Last week sucked. Luckily that is behind us, hopefully. Today the Dallas Cowboys take on the Minnesota Vikings. The Cowboys are coming off of maybe one of the worst losses in franchise history after the late touchdown surrendered to the Lions last week. The Vikings enter Sunday as a 1-6 football club and don’t know who their starting quarterback is. All they really feature is one of the top backs in the league in Adrian Peterson. As always in my rundown, I give you the three main things I will be looking for during the game. Enjoy.

1. Dez – After the overblown media coverage of Dez Bryant’s antics last week on the sideline, I am more than interested to see not only how he preforms this week but also how he carries himself on the sideline. Dez is having a monster year so far. I hope he can keep it up and be a continued force. He has that opportunity against a poor Vikings secondary.

2. Defense – It is no secret that this Cowboys defense sucks this year. Yes, a lot of it has to do with injuries. This team is basically playing with five or six pros and the rest are guys off of the street. Not joking either. But they have to stop the Vikings this week. As bad as the Cowboys are on defense, the Vikings are that bad on offense. If they give up a lot of points and yardage to this Vikings offense, they will be the laughing stock of the NFL.

The Rundown: Dallas Cowboys vs Detroit Lions

By Zack Spears

ARLINGTON – It’s game day in Cowboys Football Nation. Today the Dallas Cowboys take on the Detroit Lions. The Cowboys are coming off of two straight weeks of dominating defensive performances and two straight wins. The Lions enter Sunday as a 4-3 football club as well and feature a very lethal offense and dangerous front four on defense. As always in my rundown, I give you the three main things I will be looking for during the game. Enjoy.

1. Running Backs – The rumor is that DeMarco Murray will play on Sunday after sitting out last week with a sprained knee. So it brings up the question, what will Dallas do at that position? They have had pretty good production out of all four of their backs this year when they ask them to get in and play. I imagine that all four will be active and all will serve a different role while sharing the load to help Murray to stay off that knee as much as possible.

2. Terrance Williams – This rookie wide receiver had a rough start to his career but has since overcome the growing pains and has slowly turned into a really nice weapon for the Cowboys. The Cowboys need him to continue to produce and draw attention from defenses to help open up things on the ground and give more opportunities through the air for Dez, Beasley and Witten. Miles Austin who?
