Apart from Placekicker Greg Joseph’s three points in the first quarter, the Vikings couldn’t score anything further. Moreover, the Cowboys‘ defense didn’t spare a single chance for the opponent’s offense to progress and sacked the quarterback seven times.

It was Cousins’ first-ever career experience to get so many hits in a single game. The offense, defense, and special teams played synchronously to seal a win and wash away the Packers‘ loss.

“We just played a complete game, offense, defense. We knew we needed to respond after last week. This was big for us,” Prescott said after the game. “Now it’s just taking it one week at a time, one game at a time. If we continue to do this, this team can be special,” he added.

Well, the highlight of the evening was how CBS reacted to this game. In the early third quarter, the network switched its stream to the Bengals vs Steelers game.

It was indeed one of the rarest moments in broadcasting history that made the fans go wild. No one could have imagined any network making a sudden flip in their schedule.

Fans mock the Minnesota Vikings

The offensive run led by a young Tony Pollard and Ezekiel Elliot helped the Prescott-led offensive unit post 40 points by the end of the final whistle. However, the only disappointment the fans experienced was not getting to watch the Vikings getting whipped by the Cowboys in the last quarter.
