Guide to Game Day: Vikings-Cowboys Week 11

View photos of Vikings players from the 2019 Primetime Purple game. The team will be wearing Primetime Purple uniforms for the Week 11 Dallas Cowboys matchup.

The Vikings (4-5) and Cowboys (2-7) are scheduled to meet for the 32nd overall time and second instance at U.S. Bank Stadium. Kickoff is 3:25 p.m. (CT) Sunday.

Minnesota is breaking out its #PrimetimePurple uniforms that were introduced in 2019 and feature purple jerseys and pants.

It will be just the eighth time in Vikings history that Minnesota has worn the purple-on-purple combination.

The game is being presented by The Salvation Army, a nonprofit increasing its digital fundraising efforts to offset not being able to rely as much on in-person giving at its kettles. Needs have been increased because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Adam Thielen is helping The Salvation Army (keep an eye out for a story next week), but in the meantime, you can make a suggested donation of $19 to match Thielen's jersey by texting SKOL to 24365 or donate online at
