Did you know?
Vikings head coach Corey Girtz made his coaching debut last year with the Oakland Raiders.
This will also mark the first time that these two teams and coaches have met. Cowboys head coach Andres Perez was asked what he thought about meeting this team for the first time “It should be fun, anytime you play against a team you’ve never played before it makes things interesting. We’ll be looking at a lot of video to see what they like to run, see who their top guys are and stuff like that. Besides fun though, it’s a big game for us. We know we still got a great shot at not just first place in our division but first place overall. If you look at the top three teams in the conference we all have a record of 10-2, so we have a lot of things to play for in this next game.”
