Minnesota vs. Dallas – Which Team is in Better Shape?

>> Friday

With the Vikings and Cowboys, two of the preseason favorites for an NFC Championship, boasting a combined two wins heading into the sixth week of the NFL season, things are looking rather bleak for both football squads.

In Minnesota, you have an ever-aging Favre, still with a strong arm, but still up to his old tricks in more ways than one. Not only is Brett still throwing game-clinching interceptions, but turmoil seems to be a-brewing in the Vikings' locker room due to some risqué photos Favre allegedly sent females while with the Jets.


Add to the fact that AP is yet unable to establish himself as the back he was two years ago, and Sidney Rice still out due to a knee injury, and that Jared Allen is DOA on the defensive side of the ball, the Vikings were missing any real thump and thunder in their three games—two losses—leading up to their last game with the Jets, where, with some vintage Favre and a still athletic recently acquired Randy Moss, Minnesota was able to hang around late before losing.

In Dallas, the proverbial foot shooting has left most of these Cowboys without any toes. Dumb penalties, Romo's impression of a hyper Favre, and a complete defensive breakdown allowing teams like Chicago and Tennessee to run up the score has left the 'Boys with a Vikings mirroring 1-3 record heading into their matchup this Sunday.

You don't need to be able to break the internet blackjack to recognize that Dallas is seriously lacking in the chemistry department. Even though Roy Williams is finally coming along and Miles Austin is proving to be a top-flight WR in the league, nothing seems to meld quite well with Dallas, and it perhaps starts with Jerry Jones and trickles down to the field.

These teams are talented. Although their records state, basically, that they're abysmal, we all know that isn't the case. But which team has a better chance of going on a tear and making the playoffs – the Vikings or the Cowboys?

Checking out online casino reviews and sports books summaries will clue you in that even the so-called experts out there don't know how to call these two teams. That's why you'll find Minnesota barely favored over Dallas, giving a point and a half (- 1 ½).

That's how close these teams are but, if you had to look at what they've both done and what they're both capable of doing, Minnesota seems to be in the better position.

Dallas has a decent dual-headed running game, but their O-line is habitually absent. Whereas, with the Vikings, Peterson can instantly become the AP we all know and love now that there's a legitimate offensive threat for Favre to play with.

The acquisition of Randy Moss, even if he doesn't catch passes, simply opens up Minnesota's offense by forcing defenses to thin out the box. Who's brave enough to play 8 to quell AP when you have Percy Harvin and the freak that is Randy Moss going deep?

The Vikings showed a few flashes of brilliance against the Jets last Monday night. And for the Cowboys, they've yet to play a team even close to the Jets' level, and yet they've still managed to get beaten up.

Look for the Vikings to overtake Green Bay in that division and vie for a Wild Card. Dallas, on the other hand, is in danger of finishing 8-8.
