MINNEAPOLIS — Sunday Night Football heads to Minneapolis for the first time this season in Week 8 as the Minnesota Vikings host the Dallas Cowboys.
Both teams are coming off of a bye week headed into their primetime matchup.
Before the bye, the Vikings (3-3) won two straight games, most recently beating the Carolina Panthers on the road 34-28.
The Vikings boast one of the best collections of skill position talent in the league with Dalvin Cook at running back and a receiving core spearheaded by Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen.
The Cowboys (5-1) had last week off too after their walk-off 35-29 win in overtime over the New England Patriots in Week 6.
Former Oklahoma Sooner CeeDee Lamb starred in the win, catching the game-winning touchdown pass from Dak Prescott to put the Patriots away.
Lamb had a memorable touchdown catch in last season's matchup with the Vikings.
