CBS withdrew COWBOYS-VIKINGS from the air because it was too dismal to broadcast. The Dallas Cowboys severely embarrassed the once 8-1 Minnesota Vikings. On Sunday, CBS decided to stop showing America’s Team.
That was appropriately read by you. The Dallas Cowboys, who have consistently topped TV ratings, weren’t broadcast on purpose by a legitimate TV network. It’s a beautiful time to be here. The Vikings are thoroughly humiliated by the cowboys. It was called off by CBS.
If you were looking for any of the few leftover turkeys within a 50-mile radius during the late-afternoon Sunday NFL games, you could have missed the Cowboys’ humiliating of the Vikings in Minnesota. Terrific Tony Pollard outran everyone else in speed while Justin Jefferson appeared lackluster and Dak Prescott was a force.
Kirk Cousins performed poorly and hardly went 100 yards. That was a shocking drubbing considering the Vikings’ enthusiasm for the game. Along with not losing since Week 2, Cousins and company recently returned from a stunning victory in Buffalo.
But on Sunday, as some had expected, everything came to a screeching halt. As a result, CBS pulled the event from so many homes nationwide and switched to airing the Ravens-Steelers rivalry’s second quarter.
Relationship / Rivalry between the Vikings and the Cowboys
The Cowboys-Vikings rivalry is a contest between the Dallas Cowboys and the Minnesota Vikings. It was originally seen to be one of the biggest NFL rivalries during the 1970s, though it has since considerably calmed down. The teams’ meetings still have repercussions from the NFC playoff race.
The Cowboys have come back to win four of their last five games, and their last six contests have all been decided by one goal. Dallas is leading the competition overall, 18-15.
Seven games have been played in this playoff series between the Cowboys and Vikings, making it one of the toughest in NFL history (the most played Vikings playoff frontier and the 3rd most played opponent for the Cowboys after the Rams and Packers).
The Cowboys lead the postseason series 4-3. The Herschel Walker deal, Randy Moss leading the Vikings to victory against the Cowboys in 1998, and Brett Favre defeating the Cowboys in the 2009 championship game are some of the more notable examples.

The Dallas Cowboys defeat the on-the-rise Minnesota Vikings, 40-3
On Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys stunned the tall Minnesota Vikings, who had a seven-game winning streak, by defeating them 40-3 at home. Week 11 began with the Vikings in the first place, but they ultimately suffered their second-worst home loss in franchise history.
Tony Pollard, a Dallas running back, recorded 2 touchdown receptions and a career-high 189 rushing yards, while Ezekiel Elliott, who missed the previous two games due to a knee injury, contributed two touchdowns on 15 carries to the Dallas offense. However, the Cowboys’ defense helped them win the game.
Dallas not only held the Vikings scoreless in the final three quarters and sacked Kirk Cousins seven times, the most in his career, but also ended the quarterback’s streak of 39 consecutive games with a driving touchdown. This was now the NFL’s longest successful streak. After the victory, Pollard remarked, “We sort of figured out our strategy: just running the ball and hitting the defense while dominating the game.”
However, despite the Cowboys’ complete dominance, there has been tension in the game. The Cowboys celebrated after Dallas kicker Brett Maher squeaked in a 60-yard field goal just before the half, but officials reviewed wide receiver CeeDee Lamb’s reception just prior to the kicker’s attempt.

After the touchdown was scored, Maher was forced to attempt again and returned to his position to attempt another difficult 60-yard field goal, which he made. Maher stated that many sentiments had been expressed. “I cannot recall hearing any shouting, nothing, or anything similar prior to, during, or following the strike.
So, when I created the first one, the emotions were already somewhat exposed. I’m pleased with how I handled the situation because I was able to retreat and reach my desired destination.
