It is enough to say that Dak Prescott , DeMarcus Lawrence, and the Dallas Cowboys were unhappy with Sunday’s performance against the Arizona Cardinals.
The Cowboys only managed 301 yards total offense against the Cardinals. They also committed 10 penalties for 88 yards and one turnover, which led to a disappointing comeback. Dallas trailed by one point at the end of the third quarter, 22-7. The Cowboys scored 15 points in the fourth quarter, but the Cardinals scored a field goal on the Cardinals’ penultimate drive, ending the game 25-22.
Prescott finished the game with 24 completions from 38 passing attempts for 226 yards and three passing touchdowns. He also rushed five times for 20 yards.
Prescott stated that while we were disappointed not to win, it was enough to make us feel positive. I know what we have and the team we have. It was just that we couldn’t achieve it as a team. I’m the one who needs to improve. We all have to take a look in the mirror at ourselves and figure out a way to win in games like this.
Prescott stated, “We’ll be seeing them again”, referring to the Cowboys being prepared to face the Cardinals during the playoffs.
The Cowboys’ first round matchup with the Cardinals and Kyler Murray is the way it stands. Prescott said that he was ready and Lawrence agreed.
Lawrence replied, “Damn right,” when Lawrence was asked if the Cowboys would like to face the Cardinals once again. They came out and gave it their all tonight. We competed and we will only get better. We’ll see them again and they will get it all.
The Arizona Cardinals offense was led by Kyler Muray, who completed 26 passes in 38 attempts. This totaled 263 yards passing and two touchdowns. Murray ran for 44 yards on nine carries. A.J. Green was one of his top targets for the day. Green may only have had three receptions but he finished the day with 74 receiving yards, which is second to Christian Kirk’s six catches of 79 yards. Green’s 74 receiving yard against Trevon Diggs was perhaps the most impressive stat. This Cowboys cornerback has set many interceptions records during his second NFL season.
The Cowboys now have one regular-season match left, an away game against Philadelphia on Saturday. However, many Cowboys stars are expected to be rested for that game.
