It’s a shame the Detroit Lions didn’t play this week, but at least we get Sunday Night Football to enjoy!

The Dallas Cowboys are 5-1 but an injury to Dak Prescott could throw a wrench in their plans. Thankfully, the duo of Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard are great safety valves in the even the Cowboys passing attack is limited. Coming off the bye, Dallas would like to make it six wins in a row.

The Minnesota Vikings, meanwhile, are still trying to find their footing in an up-and-down season. Sitting at 3-3, the Vikings need to rattle off a few wins soon if they want to stay in the playoff hunt. They are also coming off a bye, so Dalvin Cook figures to be well rested to continue his dominant running game.

Here is how to watch tonight’s game:

Date: Sunday, October 31, 2021
Time: 8:20 p.m. ET
Location: U.S. Bank Stadium—Minneapolis, MN
Announcers: Al Michaels (play-by-play), Cris Collinsworth (analyst), Michele Tafoya (sidelines)
