Week 13 game review: Minnesota Vikings vs Dallas Cowboys

Week 13 game review: Minnesota Vikings vs Dallas Cowboys

Zimmer, who got his start in the National Football League as an assistant with the Cowboys in 1994 and spent 13 years with the organization, has yet to face Dallas in the regular season as a head coach. Zimmer is having emergency eye surgery, about a month after he had an initial procedure to fix a torn retina.

Zimmer, 60, has said he tore the retina in his right eye after scratching it during the Vikings' Oct. 31 loss at Chicago. As we sat down in our chairs, Mike Priefer, in one of the meanest voices I can ever recall hearing, said: "We should round up all the gays, send them to an island, and then nuke it until it glows".

"It got to a point where the surgery last night was more significant", Spielman said. "Otherwise, I may not have caught it in time". As always, we have our prediction widget available from the folks at The Crowd's Line for you to put your guesses in on and see how you've done over the course of the season. "He was doing his normal routine".

In order to prevent this from happening, it will be important for the George Edwards to rotate his defensive lineman in the 2nd and 3rd quarter.

"He's done an outstanding job on special teams".

"There's a selfless nature to them that I think is really good, and it's one of the best offensive lines I've ever been around", Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. Spielman said he did not know how much time the eye surgery - Zimmer's third in November - would require the coach to miss. "... I know Priefer's leadership". "I think after we met, I expressed specifically that potentially going blind in one eye is not worth one game in the NFL".

The Vikings look to slow down the high-powered offense of the Cowboys and create some momentum of their own as we enter the critical final five weeks of the regular season. "And we're looking out for the long-term of his health". That's the No. 1 concern that everyone's anxious about. "That's why I love working for him". "He finally seemed to realize that today, but it's very hard for him to handle, because of his personality, because of his perseverance". They opened this game at Vikings +2.5 and went to +3.5 (-120) well before that info became public. The Vikings were the last team to lose a game this season. If you go back even when he had to go through the tragedy of his wife passing away (Vicky died on October 8, 2009), he did coach.

In some ways, that victory foreshadowed how Dallas would win the rest of its games, setting the tone for the rest of the season. their battle cry.
