1. This will be 31st all-time meeting in the regular season or postseason between the franchises that played their first seasons in 1960 (Dallas) and 1961 (Minnesota). The Vikings are 11-12 in the regular season and 3-4 in postseason games against the Cowboys. The franchises also met for the first preseason game in Vikings history (Aug. 5, 1961, at Sioux Falls, South Dakota).

2. Dallas has won the past two meetings in the series by a combined six points.

3. The Cowboys are wearing navy jerseys instead of the white that they normally wear in home games, so this will be the first time for the Vikings to wear white in a game in Dallas since 1961, a contest played at the Cotton Bowl.

Longest Vikings winning streak in series: 5 games (Nov. 26, 1998 through Sept. 12, 2004)

Longest Vikings losing streak in series: 4 games (Sept. 24, 1961 through Oct. 18, 1970)
