The matchup in football betting on Sunday between the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings should really be called the panic button bowl.
One of these teams is going to be 1-4 after this game and ready to hit the panic button. The NFL football betting odds makers really have no idea which team it will be as the Vikings are 1.5 point home favorites in this game.
Dallas Offense – It is hard to believe that the Cowboys are 1-3 with the number two offense in the NFL. But we have to remember they are coached by Wade Phillips so anything is possible. The Cowboys turn the ball over and commit stupid penalties and that is a result of poor coaching.
Favre and Moss – The Vikings did very little until the fourth quarter last week against the New York Jets but then Brett Favre came alive and hit Randy Moss for a big touchdown. The problem for the Vikings is that Favre also made a number of mistakes, including throwing an interception that ended Minnesota’s chances of winning the game.
Revenge? Is there really any revenge in this game from last year? The Vikings destroyed Dallas 34-3 in the playoffs last season. With both teams at 1-3 it is hard to believe that revenge will play any part in this game.
