One of the most widely anticipated games this 2015 NFL preseason is the match between the Minnesota Vikings and the Dallas Cowboys. The NFL preseason match between the two teams will be held on Saturday (August 29) at 11:00 am (MHT). The game will see the Cowboys play host the Vikings at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
At the moment, the Vikings have a record of 3 - 0 this 2015 NFL preseason. This unblemished record gives Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer a 7 - 0 undefeated rep since the NFL team beat the Oakland Raiders 20 - 12 during the last lap of the NFL preseason games last year at the TCF Bank Stadium. With this in mind, the Minnesota Vikings are odd favorites in the NFL community which puts Dallas as the underdog in the upcoming 2015 preseason match this weekend.
Meanwhile, Minnesota star Adrian Peterson might be seen exhibiting new combinations of his moves in the upcoming NFL preseason match with Dallas . Minnesota offensive coordinator Norv Turner shares with ESPN that the team look forward to seeing Adrian Peterson show off his skills in all angles."I think the things we're doing out of the shotgun, he's very comfortable with, and getting more comfortable," reassures the Vikings offensive coordinator, referring to the adjustments made by the NFL to the plays of Adrian Peterson.
Turned adds, "We're going to give him a good dose of the things he does best and has done best his entire career. We're going to try to spread the field a little bit and do some things to give him more space."
As for the Cowboys, the team have been experiencing losses since the beginning of the 2015 preseason matches. Garnering a record of 0 - 2, the Dallas Cowboys tasted defeat in the hands of the San Diego Chargers and San Francisco 49ers. The upcoming match against the Vikings will be the first home game to be hosted by the Cowboys this 2015 NFL preseason.
With the abysmal display of the Cowboys this preseason, star player Tony Romo remains positive that his NFL team will pick up its pace and keep up with the others this year. Pointing out the necessity of having everyone in the Dallas Cowboys roster to take part of the game, the Cowboys player believes that the NFL preseason games should not be taken for granted. Romo further notes that the Dallas Cowboys should exert all efforts to treat the preseason matches as regular games.
"You want everybody back but its also next man up," says Romo, according to Star Telegram. The Cowboys star goes on to say, "Everybody has to play. We didn't do a good enough job of that as a football team tonight. Our team has to have a great weak of practice and come ready to go next week. We are going to make sure that that happens."
