    IRVING -- On a Wednesday morning conference call with reporters, Vikings coach Brad Childress compared the problems of his team and the Cowboys.

    A few things are noticeable.

    The Cowboys rank 29th in kickoff coverage (opponents average start is 30.8) and the Vikings are 28th (30.2).

    Dallas is tied for 27th in turnover ratio at -4. Minnesota is tied for 30th at -6.

    The Cowboys and Vikings have been called for a combined 71 penalties this season.

    "You probably see some of the same turnover issues, whether it be a sack, or a sack strip, or somebody putting the ball on the ground, they have the ability to be explosive on offense without a doubt," Childress said. "I don’t know how much they’re turning the football over or how many takeaways they’ve had, but usually those things lend themselves to each other."
