The Minnesota Vikings have nine games in the books in 2022, with an 8-1 record exiting Week 10.

First-year head coach Kevin O’Connell won for an eighth time in Week 10, thanks to a tremendous late-game comeback against the Bills that wasn’t for the faint of heart. Next up, the Vikings travel home to play the 6-3 Dallas Cowboys, the sixth seed in the NFC’s evolving playoff picture.
