offense, number 78. five-yard penalty. and replay the try. >> al: sirles, the right tackle. >> cris: sirles moved first. may have been a little movement. but unless you cross that line, it doesn't matter. >> al: now, you have got the 7 yard line, they flex the tight end, rudolph, all the way to the left. three receivers to the right. bradford looks over the middle. and whoa. where was that? ten feet high. not even close to keep it at 17-15. and obviously, they try an onside kick and if dallas recovers, that will be that. >> cris: let's see if sam bradford can get this in on the end of the play. a blow to the helmet, could have been called. should have been called, a blow
to the helmet of the quarterback. enough force we've seen those called. and sam bradford calling for it. tony corrente did not see it. it was to the shoulder pads. it was not. >> al: not at all. that was cedric thornton, getting away with it. corrente doesn't see the shoulder pad as we see. and they get away the it. >> cris: the arm on the shoulder pad blocked the arm on the face mask, from the view of corrente, back off of the quarterback's right. >> al: we know a lot of you joined us late. mike zimmer underwent emergency eye surgery. not here. has to be at home. priefer is the interim head coach. and onside kick will determine
if this game will go on or not. and witten hasn't caught a ball tonight. but he makes the catch there. so, the streak will be over. but the dallas cowboys are going to be on their way to another win. i just want to quickly acknowledge graham tinker passing at the age of 90. he was instrumental of building nbc into a tremendous network during his tenure. a beloved man by everybody who worked for him and all of his pals. our sympathies to the family. he was a special human being. >> cris: got a chance to meet him, thanks to you. it was great. >> al: he was something else. the dallas cowboys will get the weekend off. their next game is a week from sunday night, against the giants on "sunday night football." so, we will be there for that one. will go in there 11-1.
the giants are 8-3. pittsburgh coming up on sunday, to try to keep pace with them. only loss this season for the cowboys was to the giants, by one point on opening day. so, find out about mike zimmer and minnesota's next game is a week from sunday. they two to jacksonville. whether mike can make it or not, we don't know. bradford trying to lead that comeback, comes up short. but coming up next, the volkswagen postgame report. "thursday night football" presented by bud light.
welcome to "the folks volkswagen gulf alltrack game report." >> the minnesota vikings hold zeke elliott to less than 90 yards rushing since week two. and yet, the dallas cowboys emerge with their 11th-consecutive victory here on "thursday night football." winning a football game. a tight one, 17-15, here in minnesota. heather cox, moments ago, with dak prescott. >> you came into a hostile environment, on the road against a top two defense. what went right tonight? >> we stuck together. we played a great defense. but we always believe in ourselves. and we stuck together after some
turnovers, some bad things happen. things didn't go our way. but we stayed together. >> 11-consecutive wins. and we talked yesterday. there's no stage too big. what's the key to you staying so composed and so confident during this run? >> my teammates and coaches. we have a great group of veterans that have been here that have done this. just keep us all under control, just allow us to go out and have fun. >> congratulations. let's go upstairs to al. >> thank you, heather. a year that starts with tony romo in preseason. and opening-day loss to the giants. they're a team you can see it now. and they figure out different ways to win the game. and they certainly did tonight. >> let's say this. that was an ugly game tonight, for the dallas cowboys. they did it in an atypical fashion tonight because the time of possession, much more in favor of the minnesota vikings. mistakes and penalties. and end drives.
they found a way to win. and as much as anything tonight, they went on special teams. it was the big turnover down there, that led to the go ahead touchdown. special teams, a big difference all night tonight. >> the irony in that, was zimmer not able to coach. and priefer the interim head coach. the one special teams guy that works with everybody. and the thielen play, that was really close, was the play of the game, though. >> and sam bradford hung in there. this is an offense that is struggling to put something together. they did on occasion. and did it on the two-point conversion and get the penalty. and don't catch a break on the officials from the last one. >> dallas, 11-1. and minnesota at .500 after the great start. they are 6-6. we'll have more of the postgame report when we come back to minneapolis after this.
