For a matchup to occur against the Cowboys in the divisional round, the Philadelphia Eagles must beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Yeah, that’s a tall task. But let’s have some fun and assume the Cowboys, Cardinals, and Eagles win on Super Wild Card Weekend.

It sets up a matchup against the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium. A stadium in which Kyler Murray has yet to lose. With Murray having won his previous two games against the Cowboys on their home field, he gets the benefit of the doubt.

But it’s not just Murray. The Cowboys scored 56 and 51 points in games sandwiched against their 22-point outing against Arizona. So the Cardinals’ defense knows a thing or two about stopping the Cowboys’ offense. Even Dak Prescott is once again performing like an All-Pro Quarterback.

Odds are, if the Cardinals win on Super Wild Card Weekendthey will play the Packers in a rematch, this time on the road. But in this scenario, it’s ideal they avoid Green Bay in the divisional round.
