    Worthless stats to chew on re Cowboys-Vikes

    Cowboys, when facing a offense ranked in the top half of the NFL this regular season (final ranking-yardage), went 4-4 (Beat NO, ATL, PHI twice, Lost GB, SD, NYG twice). Vikings went 4-2 against such teams (Beat NYG, BAL, GB twice, Lost PIT, AZ)

    Cowboys, when facing a defense ranked in the top half of the NFL this regular season (final ranking-yardage), went 5-5 (Beat CAR, WAS twice, PHI twice, Lost GB, SD, DEN, NYG twice) Vikings went 6-2 against such teams (Beat BAL, SF, CIN, NYG, GB twice, Lost CAR, PIT)

    Cowboys averaged 280.2 passing yards per game this season, Vikings 275.2. Vikings threw 8 more TD passes and 2 fewer INTs. Both teams allowed 34 sacks.

    Cowboys averaged 131.4 rushing yards per game (4.8 ypc), Vikings 119.9 (4.1 ypc). Vikings rushed for 5 more TDs, but lost 3 more fumbles.

    Vikes were ranked #2 in NFL vs run, Cowboys #4. Against the pass, Vikes were #19 vs the pass, Cowboys #20. Vikes allowed 7 more TD passes than Dallas, but both teams intercepted only 11 passes. Vikes led NFL with 48 sacks, Cowboys were 7th with 42 sacks.

    Against teams that reached the playoffs, the Cowboys were 3-2, the Vikings 4-1.

    The ONLY thing the Cowboys have in their favor is that the Vikings stumbled down the stretch, going 2-3 in their last five while the Cowboys were 3-2. Other than that, the two teams are very similar statistically. Keep in mind that most of the Vikings struggles came AFTER Antoine Winfield came back. Unless you want to hang a lot on Jasper Brinkley's growing pains, there isn't really any reason to think the Cowboys are superior to the Vikings in any way.
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    Re:Worthless stats to chew on re Cowboys-Vikes

    Those are really interesting stats.

    They all point to this, it's going to be a tight game.

    Really, the only area I feel 100% confident in is the kicking/ punting game!

    All of the other areas are by no means a 'gimme' when deciding which team has the upper hand.

    I can't wait to see the random stats that come out this week.
    i m better than you, so just give up...

    Re:Worthless stats to chew on re Cowboys-Vikes

    Very interesting stats indeed. The one I like to mention is the fact that the game will be played at home in the dome. The Vikes are 8-0 at home and 10-0 indoors this season. While the Cowgirls are 5-3 on the road and only 1-0 inside a dome.
    Skol!
    Go Vikings!

    The Vikings scored 29.4 points per game during the regular season, the Cowgirls scored 22.6. Nearly 7 pts of extra offense on the Vikings side.

    Favre has played the Dallas Cowboys 11 times as of August 2008. He is 0-9 playing them in Texas Stadium (truf). and 2-0 while in Greenbay (natural grass). Brett Farves overall record vs. the Dallas Cowboys is 2-9.

    And there's the most worthless one so far.

    He's 8-0 on Metrodome turf this year.

    I like this one: The Vikings have won their last four home games by 20 points or more!

    Was only a matter of time before they went to the past to try to look superior.

    I mean ... all of THIS season's stats make the Cowboys look inferior, so lets go to the numbers from the way way back (like when the Cowboys were winning Super Bowls, sure, those matter now).

    Fact: The Cowboys have NEVER won a road game vs. Brett Favre. That is what I get from what you posted.
