Cowboys rally for 31-28 victory and stop Vikings' winning streak
November 23, 2020
The Vikings' playoff hopes, after a late afternoon high-wire act against the Cowboys on Sunday, are on life support. The reasons they are 4-6, and not 5-5, were too many for Dalvin Cook, Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson to overcome.
They fell 31-28 to the Cowboys in a game filled with lead changes, magnificent catches from Vikings and Cowboys receivers and hard-to-explain penalties that keep the game close ended with the Vikings' inability to get a defensive stop.
"I don't think we played well enough to win today," coach Mike Zimmer said, noting penalties, red-zone defense and a slow start on offense as particular problems.
