WR Dez Bryant (33 rec, 550 yards, 5 TDs) led Dallas with 72 yards on five catches last week and is beginning to show excellent chemistry with Prescott. Bryant is averaging 89.3 receiving yards per game since returning from injury.
Dallas averages 157.3 rushing yards per game (2nd). RB Ezekiel Elliot (243 car, 1199 yards, 11 TDs) should be a lock for the Offensive Rookie of the Year award. He had 97 yards and two scores against Washington.

The Vikings average 223.8 passing yards per game (24th). QB Sam Bradford (2415 yards, 12 TDs & 3 INTs) completed 31 of 37 passes for 224 yards and one interception against Detroit.
"I think we’ve got to find a way to create more explosive plays, whether that’s mixing in more of our play-action game, which we’ve kind of gotten away from," Bradford said. "We’re trying to create some of these plays with some deeper-route concepts. That’s one way, but however we do it, we’ve just got to figure out a way to make sure that it happens."
