AP -- Rested and ready to light up the scoreboard. That's what the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings bring to Sunday night's prime-time matchup.

It's a game that means a ton to both sides, even this early in the schedule: The Cowboys believe they have a shot at the NFC's best record and the Vikings are in position to contend for a wild-card playoff berth.

That's more than two months away, though. For now, coming off their bye weeks, both teams bring strong offenses to the field — Dallas first overall, Minnesota fifth.
