Cowboys

NFL

The Cowboys were as dominant as they have been all season in their 40-10 win against San Francisco. Was it the start of a run to get them back to the playoffs? The next four games against Washington, Kansas City, Atlanta and Philadelphia will very well tell the story of their season.

After five weeks of near misses, the 49ers got a harsh dose of reality in a blowout loss to the Cowboys.

Vikings

NFL

The Vikings are one step closer to finishing the second quarter of the season at 4-0, thanks in large part to their schedule. Minnesota plays the winless Browns in London next Sunday and has a bye in Week 9. Being 6-2 would be a huge bonus for the Vikings to control their own destiny in the second half. It also doesn't hurt that they have the only player to log a sack in seven straight games this season (Everson Griffen) and the No. 3 run defense in the NFL, a unit that has played a major part in securing five wins.
