Dallas-Minnesota History

This has been a season of firsts for the Cowboys.  Three weeks ago, they beat the Rams at home for the first time since 1981 (they had lost four straight there, including three games when they were favored).  Two weeks ago, Dallas won in Buffalo for only the second time ever, and the first time since 1971.  Last week, Dallas lost at home to New England for the first time ever.  We also started out 5-0 for the first time since 1983.

This week we have yet another odd situation.  Can anyone remember the last time Dallas won a regular season game against the Vikings at Texas Stadium?  That's right, we've never beaten Minnesota at home in the regular season, since we've moved from the Cotton Bowl in 1971.  We did win two playoff games against them there, in 1977 and 1996, and twice in the Cotton Bowl (1961 and 1966).  But in the regular season at Texas Stadium, we're 0-6, with losses coming in 1974, 1978, 1987, 1988, 1998 and 2000.

Let's hope the pattern of ground-breaking results continues one more week, and we can finally win there, before Texas Stadium is demolished.
