Talk about an ass-whooping. That game was a clean old fashioned beat down. Kyler Murray only completed nine passes and the Cardinals still scored 38 points. That rarely happens in today’s league. The Cowboys offense was a flat out mess. Remember last week when people like Cowherd said there wasn’t much of a difference between Dak and Andy Dalton? So so dumb.
Yeah, there is a difference and it’s a pretty big one. Andy Dalton was sacked three times tonight and threw two interceptions. The Cardinal’s defense was everywhere, forcing four total turnovers. Cardinals safety Budda Baker, such a badass name, was a beast tonight. Baker had seven tackles, one sack, and one interception.
Ezekiel Elliott struggled massively, rushing for only 49 yards and had two fumbles in the first half. Zeke has struggled with fumbles, he has 18 in his career. He made assured to Lisa Salters that he would fix those issues. Well Zeke you have a long way to go.
Despite only completing nine passes, Murray was still a force on the field. Going for 262 total yards, with three total touchdowns. Oh, and he is still making these throws look effortless.
Murray is now 7-0 at AT&T Stadium, including high school, college, and pro. Running back Kenyan Drake couldn’t be stopped, rushing for 164 yards on 20 carries. To go along with two touchdowns, one coming on this 69 (nice) yard run.
The 38-10 loss is the Cowboys worst home loss in AT&T Stadium, they have played 96 games in that stadium. The Cardinals are now 4-2, and winners of two straight. On the flip side, the Cowboys are 2-4 but are somehow still in first place in the NFC East. That division might be the worst of all-time. The NFC East has a record of 5-18-1 through six weeks. The Cowboys are the first team since the 1970 merger to be in first place through six weeks with a winning record. Can we just take a team from a different division instead of the NFC East for the playoffs? Seriously, this division is AWFUL. But because that division is so bad all hope isn’t lost for Cowboys fans. Plus, they get to play Washington next week, that’s always nice.
