Week 6 Dallas Cowboys versus Arizona Cardinals

This will be Dallas’ toughest game of their next five contests. Arizona has gotten off to a fast start offensively with Kyler Murray finding success through the air and on the ground. Murray has thrown for 786 yards and ran for 187 yards adding eight total touchdowns on the season.

The major weakness of Arizona has been turnovers. Murray threw three of his five interceptions against Detroit last week that resulted in their first loss of the season. He tends to play hero ball and utilize his mobility too often.

Based on previous performances and the distrust in Arizona’s new success, Dallas should come into the game as a slight favorite in the game. The Cowboys offense has been more consistent despite turnovers and penalties hurting them at times this season.

This game will come down to who can make bigger plays down the stretch. Outside of DeAndre Hopkins, Arizona has not had another weapon offensively that has exploded onto the scene. If Dallas’ secondary can eliminate Hopkins from the passing game, it could open the door for Dallas to find success.

Both teams struggle with turnovers so most likely, whoever wins the turnover battle will win the game.
