Gameday: Vikings, Ponder To Face Cowboys
The Minnesota quarterback saga continues today with Christian Ponder getting the start for the second week in a row, as the 1-6 Vikings travel to Dallas to face the 4-4 Cowboys at Noon (CT) on FOX. A Minnesota win would give the Vikings their 3rd consecutive victory over the Cowboys.
It is the first game between the two teams since 2010, and the first time the Vikings will play in AT&T Stadium. The two teams have met 28 times and have split the series 14- 14. The Vikings own a 7-5 record on the road in Dallas.
With 2 tackles today, Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway will become the 7th player in team history to reach 1,000 tackles. Greenway has played in 103 games.
Dallas is favored by 10.
