In a game of must wins and too many similarities, the Vikings special teams found a way to get it done. Favre had yet another mediocre performance and Romo, despite throwing 3 TDs still put up 2 interceptions. This game was won despite the quarterback on one side and because of the QB on the other.
Favre continued his mediocre play with a 14 for 19, 118 yard 1 TD and 1 INT effort. He did not look good again and even with the addition of Moss, he just couldn't throw the ball well at all. Moss had a total of 5 catches for 55 yards and no TDs. All of the receivers had anemic numbers. Adrian Peterson was able to run for 73 yards and 1 TD on 24 rushing attempts. Percy Harvin who contributed little in the passing game, was a huge factor on kickoff returns and his return of 85 yards sparked the Vikings second half.
Romo on the other hand threw for 220 yards and 3 TDs, but he lofted up 3 interceptions. The running game was still all but nonexistent for the Cowboys. Roy Williams had 2 TDs and Dez Bryant who finally got some play had 1 TD. The Cowboys controlled almost every game stat, total yards, receiving yards, time of possession and yet they still cannot get the win.
The Cowboys are now 1-4 and in the cellar of the NFC East. The Vikings move to 2-3 and are in 3rd place in the NFC North. The Cowboys have the Giants next and the Vikings get the Packers. The Giants are on a winning roll while the Packers are struggling just a bit. The Cowboys could go down 1-5 and their season would be all but done. The Vikings have a chance to pull out a win vs the Packers, a chance. After yesterday's game, most people will be saying that the Cowboys can't get it done and the Vikings are still in the game.
