Okay, so maybe Zach Wilson didn't retire mid-game like I predicted last week, but Micah Parsons sure made a claim for locking up Defensive Player of the Year already and we cruised to another easy win.
Of course, when Dallas opens the season with three straight matchups against terrible teams, it's easy for Cowboys fans to get ahead of themselves and make some pretty outlandish claims.
Within every one of these outlandish claims and predictions, however, lies some truth.
Here are my bold predictions (and the truth that lies within them) for our Week 3 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
Cowboys vs. Cardinals Week 3 Bold Predictions
1. Josh Dobbs Will Double His Career Interception Total
On the surface, it looks like Josh Dobbs has done everything the Cardinals could ask from him as a game manager, most importantly throwing 0 interceptions on the season and keeping his career total at 3.
The Cowboys are going to completely expose Dobbs though, and he's going to add another 3 interceptions to his career total in this game alone.
First of all, Dobbs has not actually been taking care of the ball well. He's simply been lucky.
Pro Football Focus (PFF) grades out "turnover-worthy" throws, and they've got Dobbs tied for No. 3 among all quarterbacks with 4 such throws, and he's fourth in percentage of throws that have been deemed turnover-worthy.
The wild part? That's happened despite the fact that he's not sitting in the pocket long and isn't forcing the ball downfield. He's checking down and making short, rhythm passes and still is running the risk of turnovers at a high rate.
Dobbs has also had the benefit of not needing to force many throws. Both Arizona games have been close this season, and he's spent a ton of time playing with a lead.
Now we're going to see Dobbs try to play catch-up, and we've seen how poorly that has gone for Daniel Jones and Zach Wilson so far.
