It wasn’t a fun few days for the Cowboys after blowing the game to the Packers, but the team sounded like a group ready to move on and learn from the loss. It wasn’t just lip service, they came out and proved they can play with the best teams in the NFL.
Just as they have all year, the Cowboys responded after a tough situation. When starting quarterback Dak Prescott went down, the team answered by winning four out of five with Cooper Rush. This game wasn’t going to be any different.
Micah Parsons got the ball rolling by getting a strip sack on Dallas’ first defensive series and the Cowboys came away with three points. Dan Quinn’s unit poured it on from there, allowing only three points, giving up just 183 total yards and notching a season-high seven sacks.
On offense, the Cowboys piled on the points and made sure the Vikings couldn’t mount a comeback like they have all year long. Or like Dallas allowed the Packers to last week.
The Cowboys learned the hard way they can’t just show up and win games, or let up when they have a team down. They took the lessons learned in Week 10 and made sure they didn’t happen again.
Mike McCarthy leads a resilient group and the Cowboys continue to demonstrate that trait in 2022.
