will re-air the Dallas Cowboys' 27-23 win over the Minnesota Vikings from Week 9 on Wednesday, Nov. 6 at 9 p.m. ET.

Romo's 7-yard pass to Harris answered an 11-yard touchdown run by Adrian Peterson that gave Minnesota a 23-20 lead. Harris, an East Texas kid raised on Cowboys football, had 140 yards rushing in his first game at the team's $1.2 billion stadium.

The Cowboys (5-4) bounced back from a devastating loss at Detroit by avoiding what probably would have been a more damaging defeat.

Christian Ponder threw for a touchdown and ran for another score against his hometown team, but it wasn't enough to avoid a fourth straight loss for the Vikings (1-7).

Jason Witten had eight catches for 102 yards and a touchdown for Dallas.
