The Fan hosts give their predictions as the Minnesota Vikings visit the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night. 

Kevin Hageland

The Cowboys will win if: They realize game starts in the 1st, not the 3rd quarter / Own line of scimmage on both sides of the ball.

The Cowboys will lose if: They lose the turnover battle and cannot assert their will with a strong rushing attack.

Notes: Cowboys win, 23-20

 

Cory Mageors

The Cowboys will win if: They can keep Kirk Cousins from standing safely in the pocket. When it comes to panicking under pressure, he’s the king. Get bodies around him and he will not make accurate throws.

The Cowboys will lose if: If the Cowboys offense isn’t ready to be the more physical group. The Vikings are very sound and big hitters. The Cowboys don’t necessarily have to pound the rock, but the receivers need to be ready to be hit and turn that aggressiveness into a positive for themselves.

 

Gavin Dawson

The Cowboys will win if: They not only have to avoid mistakes but they also need to execute well. I don't think a bad game plan can crush them becuase they are now running the ball so well that they can beat anybody now if they don't shoot themselves in the foot.

The Cowboys will lose if: They lose the turnover battle, or they allow the Vikings to run for 5+ yards per carry it could get scary.

Notes: Cowboys 24-21

 

Jared Sandler

The Cowboys will win if: They get Kirk Cousins moving. When he isn't forced to use his feet he's really good. He's also struggled in close games to good teams so the Boys need to get off to a better start than they have.

The Cowboys will lose if: Don't let other people fool you...Kirk Cousins is really good. No Thielen hurts but the Vikes have weapons. But they have more big play weapons than a group who can constantly drive down the field with 10+ play drives. If the Vikings aren't forced to do that, they'll have a field day and their defense can shut things down.

Notes: Vikings 27-23
