After a 1-5 start to the season, the Vikings have rattled off three straight wins and can make it four-in-a-row Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium when they take on the Dallas Cowboys.
Dallas is only 2-7 this season, but don't expect Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer to take them lightly.
"They've got tons of skill and speed, a great running back, and a big physical offensive line. Defensively they play with a lot of competitiveness. We're going to have to play well in order to beat them," Zimmer said on Friday.

Minnesota not only is going for its fourth straight win, the next three games are at U.S. Bank Stadium, so this will give the Vikings an excellent chance of getting back into the playoff race.
"Obviously sitting at 1-5 we went and looked at things we were doing well and things that were causing us to lose football games. Fortunately for us, the things we were doing well was a much bigger list than the things that were costing us football games. So we've been able to eliminate those the last four weeks and we've won three in a row. We looked at the schedule and saw we had three division games in a row and said we can get right back in this," says Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph.
Dallas currently leads the series 16-15 against the Vikings with Minnesota winning last season 28-24 in Dallas.
The Cowboys/Vikings game is set for 3:25pm at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
