Additionally, CB Trevon Diggs leads the NFL with 7 interceptions on the season and was named the NFC’s Defensive Player of the Month in September. The Cowboys are coming off a bye week that’s allotted Prescott with additional time to rehab a calf strain sustained in week 6, however, Prescott is still a game time decision for tonight.
Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings are also coming off a bye week and sit second in the NFC North with a 3-3 record. Minnesota has won three of its last four games and its three losses of the season were by a combined total of 11 points. Cousins, whose contract is up at the end of the season, has completed 166 of 239 passes (69.5) percent for 1,769 yards with 13 touchdowns and just two interceptions through six games. The Vikings will be without CB Patrick Peterson on Sunday who will miss at least 3 games with a hamstring injury. The 11-season veteran is in his first year with the Vikings and had 13 tackles and two passes defended in the first six games of the season.
