In the NFC, a few unlikely contenders have surfaced. The Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings are neck-and-neck with 5 - 1 records, which is especially remarkable given both teams’ lack of seasoned quarterbacks. Minnesota’s next home matchup is against the Chicago Bears on November 6. Find out if they can improve their record for as little as $152.
The big news coming out of the NFL is all about TV viewership. The latest ratings show that there was a 10 percent drop this season, which has led several league officials trying to determine the reason for the lagging viewership. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell believes that viewers have not been lost even though there is a drop in ratings. Many believe point the finger at the presidential election and debate schedule, as well as prime time not featuring the most competitive games. As the teams continue to work hard this season, the overall rankings currently have the Vikings in the lead, with the Cowboys and Patriots close behind. You can still get tickets for all games, with prices depending on location and date.
Ever heard of an NFL team that didn’t want to be No. 1?

In Week 3, it was the Steelers who were routed by the Eagles. The following week the Patriots went down against Buffalo, and then Denver went down against the Falcons this Sunday.
