Mike McCarthy vs Jonathan Gannon
The Dallas Cowboys enter this matchup with an undefeated record to begin the year, having defeated the Los Angeles Chargers 20-17 last week. Since then, several key Cowboy players have stood out as promising performers.
Dak Prescott (QB): Dak Prescott is back from injury and had a solid performance against the Falcons last game, completing 13 out of 24 passes for 143 yards without throwing any touchdowns or interceptions – an indication that he is steadily finding his rhythm as an NFL quarterback.
Tony Pollard (RB): Pollard has been an integral component of the Cowboys’ ground game, amassing 70 yards on 14 carries while scoring two touchdowns – his ability to find the endzone makes him an invaluable asset.
CeeDee Lamb (WR): Lamb has proven himself an indispensable target for Prescott, catching four passes for 77 yards last game alone. Boasting speed and hands that rival any defense, Lamb poses a serious threat on offense and defense alike.
The Cowboys have been an impressive team over recent seasons, boasting an outstanding 15-5 SU record over their last 20 games. However, they must remain wary of Arizona as they’ve gone winless against them over that span (1-6 against total spread in seven matchups).
Arizona Cardinals: Striving for Consistency
The Arizona Cardinals have made an inconsistent start to this year’s NFL campaign, entering Week 2’s game with Jacksonville Jaguars winning 17-9; however, consistency has proven challenging for this squad.
Joshua Dobbs (QB): Joshua Dobbs had an effective performance against the Jaguars, completing 21 of 30 passes for 132 yards while also avoiding interceptions – providing stability at the quarterback position.
James Conner (RB): Conner carried the ball 14 times for 62 yards, averaging an impressive average of 4.4 per carry and his ability to advance their offense is critical.
Rondale Moore (WR): Moore made three receptions for 33 yards during his last game and will look to contribute more in the passing game and create opportunities downfield.
The Cardinals have shown promise, going 4-1 against the spread in their last five games. But they must address their struggles at home where they have gone winless over the past six home games (SU).
