Vikings Hold on For Huge Road Win in Dallas, Take Down Cowboys on Sunday Night Football, 28-24
The Minnesota Vikings went into Dallas on Sunday night and picked up a critical win on the road against the Cowboys, 28-24.
The Vikings got out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter on two Kyle Rudolph touchdown receptions, one of which was a one-handed circus catch that will be embedded in the highlight reel for this season.
The Cowboys charged back, led by QB Dak Prescott’s three touchdown passes, to take the lead in the third quarter.
Vikings running back Dalvin Cook had a huge game and capped it with the go-ahead rushing TD late in the third. The league’s leading rusher ran for 97 yards on 26 carries and caught seven passes for 86 yards.
Trailing by four with under five minutes to play, Prescott drove the Cowboys down to the Minnesota 6-yard line but the drive came to an end on a turnover on downs.

Lamar Jackson Produces Second Perfect Passer Rating of Season in Ravens’ Rout of Bengals
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is building quite the campaign for the league’s most valuable player this season.
Jackson continued his onslaught on the NFL on Sunday, producing a perfect passer rating (158.3) in the Ravens’ 49-13 beatdown of the Cincinnati Bengals.
The second-year QB became only the second player in NFL history to record a perfect passer rating in multiple games in one season, having also achieved the perfect rating in the Ravens’ opening-week win against the Miami Dolphins.
Jackson completed 15-of-17 passes on Sunday for 223 yards and three touchdowns, but it was a play he made with his feet that left everyone in awe when he ran for a 47-yard score that was highlighted by an electric spin-move around a defender.
The Ravens improved to 7-2 and are now just one game behind the New England Patriots (8-1) for the top seed in the AFC.
