MINNEAPOLIS – The tone was set on the Cowboys' first defensive series of the day. Linebacker Micah Parsons recorded a strip sack of Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins on a third-and-3 from the Vikings' 32. Defensive end Dorance Armstrong recovered the loose ball, and the party was on. 'We hunting so you ain't getting far,' Parsons said of the chase. 'We coming from the backside, [and] I was able to get the ball loose and we recovered and set that statement of the game.' At one point during the Cowboys' 40-3 victory over the Vikings on Sunday afternoon at US Bank Stadium, safety Jayron Kearse recorded a third-quarter sack on Cousins and mocked the crowd.
