Three questions facing the Arizona Cardinals in week six
The Arizona Cardinals face one of the league’s best offenses and weakest defenses heading into a Monday Night Football tilt with the Dallas Cowboys.
And they must do so without their best pass rusher in Chandler Jones, who is out the rest of the season with a biceps injury. While Dallas will miss quarterback Dak Prescott, expect Andy Dalton to capitalize on the Cowboys brilliant receiving unit against the Arizona Cardinals weak corners if the pass rush falters without Jones.
Someone needs to step up and bring the heat against Dalton. Especially with tackles La’el Collins and Tyron Smith on IR.
The Cowboys have allowed 36 points per game so far in 2020 and their defense struggled against the league’s worst scoring offense in Week 5. After Kyler Murray and the Cardinals offense burst onto the scene in their matchup against the Jets, we can only wonder what they can do to the Cowboys defense if the unit continues to click.
Murray and the Cardinals offense have shown flashes of greatness all season. But they have also sputtered. Can they click for the second straight week against the league’s worst defense?
Thanks to Murray, the Cardinals boast one of the best rushing offenses in football that ranks fifth in the league. Given the Cowboys struggles against the run, the Cardinals have a golden opportunity to play ball control in an effort to keep the ball out of Andy Dalton’s and the Cowboys offense’s hands.
While Murray can run the ball, running backs Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds have gotten off to slow starts. Will they complement Murray in week six?
