How to watch Cowboys-Vikings: Start time, TV info, storylines and more

Another week, another prime spot on the NFL calendar for the Dallas Cowboys.
As their run through the NFC North continues, the Cowboys (6-3) will travel to Minnesota this week to face the red-hot Vikings (8-1).
Minnesota, like Dallas, played an overtime game last week — and arguably the game of the year, thus far — coming out victorious against the Buffalo Bills. Dallas is looking to respond from a disappointing loss in Green Bay.
Below, you will find everything fans need to know about the matchup — where to watch, how to listen, team breakdowns and more:

3 things about the Vikings
1. While much of the NFC North’s focus at the beginning of the year was directed at two-time defending MVP Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay, former Cowboys tight end Dan Campbell’s attempt to revitalize Detroit and the next stage of Justin Fields’ development in Chicago, it turns out the Minnesota Vikings were the cream of the division’s crop.
Off to an 8-1 start, with their only defeat coming at the hands of the 8-1 Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2, the Vikings are currently on a seven-game winning streak after defeating Buffalo in overtime, have a five-game lead in the NFC North in the loss column and are tied with the Eagles for the best record in the NFL.
2. Justin Jefferson is that dude.
Second in the NFL this season in reception yards (1,060), Jefferson has put his outlandish skills on display all season as the Vikings’ top receiving threat. No play may have shown just how dangerous he is more than this miraculous one-handed conversion on 4th-and-18 late in the fourth quarter against the Bills.

“He truly believes that he is capable of greatness every time he goes on the field,” Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell said after Sunday’s win, “and I happen to agree with him.”
Aside from Jefferson, the offense in Minnesota is also highlighted by the usual suspects of quarterback Kirk Cousins, running backs Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison, fellow receiver Adam Thielen and recently-acquired tight end T.J. Hockenson.
3. Advantage Cowboys?
While Brett Maher has been nearly automatic whether it’s been on field-goal tries (15-17, 88.2%), extra points (22-23, 95.7%) or kickoffs (85.1% touchbacks) this season, Minnesota hasn’t had as much luck in the kicking department.
Greg Joseph has four missed extra points, the most in the NFL. He made both of his field-goal attempts in Buffalo, including the 33-yard try in overtime that provided the winning margin, but he’s also tied for the most missed field goals (five) in the league this season. That’s a total of 19 points for a team that has played seven straight one-score games.
On kickoffs, Joseph has only converted 55.3% of them into touchbacks this year. (Hello, KaVontae Turpin.)
With oddsmakers leaning Dallas’ way as one-point favorites heading into the game, as of Tuesday, the right leg of Maher of Joseph could prove crucial on Sunday.
