Sunday Night Football Schedule 2019: Where to Watch Minnesota Vikings vs. Dallas Cowboys, TV Channel, Live Stream

Three weeks ago, the Dallas Cowboys' season looked to be unraveling at a rate of knots, with three straight defeats dropping America's Team to 3-3.

The picture is much rosier after back-to-back victories against the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants either side of a bye week saw Dallas take control of the NFC East as the regular season enters its second half.

The Cowboys can make it three wins in a row when they host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football in a matchup that could shape the postseason hopes of both teams.

No team has won back-to-back divisional titles in the NFC East since the Philadelphia Eagles took four in a row between 2001 and 2004, but the Cowboys could become the first team to buck the trend.

Four of the Cowboys' remaining six games are on the road—including trips to New England and divisional rivals Philadelphia—and they will be well aware their margin of error ranges between minimal and non-existent, particularly with the Eagles just 0.5 games behind them.

"We have to beat those teams to control our destiny," Dak Prescott told reporters after the win against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.

In each of their five wins this season, the Cowboys have scored 30 or more points, racked up at least 400 total yards of offense and outscored their opponents by a double-digit margin.

According to The Athletic, it is only the third time in franchise history after 1983 and 2007 that Dallas has managed five such games.

The fact all of Dallas's wins have been by a double-digit margin is particularly impressive considering the Cowboys have only just 23 interceptions in the last 36 games—for comparison, the New England Patriots have racked up 19 in nine games alone this season—and the New Orleans Saints are the only team with a winning record that has registered fewer takeaways.

The lack of interceptions means the Cowboys often have to drive the length of the field to get in a scoring position.

Luckily for them, the offense has been firing on all cylinders, with Prescott throwing for 2,380 yards and 15 touchdowns so far, while Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for over 100 yards in each of his last three games.

The Vikings have a formidable running back of their own, with Dalvin Cook racking up a league-best 894 rushing yards fo far this season.

Cook finished with 116 scrimmage yards in the road loss against Kansas City last week, the seventh time this season he has accumulated at least 100 scrimmage yards in a game—an NFL-best.

His performance, however, was not enough to secure a fourth consecutive win for Minnesota, as Harrison Butker's 44-yard field goal gave the Chiefs a 26-23 victory.

The loss saw the Vikings slid to 6-3, a game behind the NFC-leading Green Bay Packers, and highlighted familiar flaws.

Kirk Cousins threw three touchdown passes for 220 yards, but completed just 50 percent of his passes. Crucially, he had the opportunity to lead the Vikings down the field with just over two minutes left in the fourth quarter, but failed to get a first down as Minnesota had three-and-outs on their final two drives.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, however, declined to blame his quarterback for the loss.

"He missed some throws," he was quoted as saying by the Star Tribune.

"It's not the end of the world. We'll be all right."

The loss to Kansas City has complicated Minnesota's plans, but all hope is not lost.

In the last 29 consecutive seasons, at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs after missing the postseason a year earlier, and the Vikings still control their destiny.
