The Minnesota Vikings play two of their last three games on the road, beginning with the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday. The Vikings lost to the Lions at TCF Bank Stadium in Week 6, 17-3. The Lions did not have most of their offensive weapons on the field or at 100 percent. The Vikings remain in the playoff picture, but need to win-out and get some help.
The Dallas Cowboys beat the Chicago Bears last night 41-28. Chicago scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to make it look respectable, but a 21-0 third quarter for Dallas essentially sealed this one.
These two teams meet tonight at Soldier Field in what should be a high-scoring game. There are plenty of fantasy points on the board here.
The Cowboys are 8-4, but if the season ended today they would not be in the playoffs. After Thursday’s visit to Chicago, they go to Philadelphia, host Indianapolis, and finish at Washington.

Kalil apologized for dodging the media and called the incident afterward “no big deal.” The Vikings lost their other starting tackle Phil Loadholt for the rest of the season with a torn pectoral muscle.
