Just named NFC Offensive Player of the Week, the third-year receiver is coming off his biggest game of his short career. He had five catches for 120-yards and a touchdown last Sunday.
He was targeted seven times against the Colts. Nelson was able to create separation against the Colts secondary on his 45-yard touchdown catch. He also made the catch while diving to the ground.
In the past Nelson has dropped those types of passes. If Nelson can become that consistent deep threat, then Dallas may have a difficult night ahead of them.
The Cowboys are hurting a little in their secondary so if the Cardinals can get a good passing game going along with their rushing attack, then the result should be victory.
Nelson has great breakaway speed and if quarterback Carson Palmer can avoid overthrows, then Nelson should have another big game. Palmer needs to find him more than five times though.
