After losing Dak Prescott to an ankle injury last week, the Dallas Cowboys were hopeful that Andy Dalton would be able to lead their team in the coming weeks. This was not the case on Monday Night Football. Andy Dalton was sacked three times and threw two interceptions en route to a blow out 38-10 loss versus the Arizona Cardinals.
SportsCastr News NFL’s Lawrence Owen was quick to point out that the blame shouldn’t solely rest on Dalton. Dallas RB Ezekiel Elliott fumbled twice in the game before being benched, and the Cowboy receivers were not much better. After leading the NFL in drops last year, the Dallas receiving core seemed to return to their old ways.
Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals were able to capitalize immediately on the Dallas mistakes. Murray threw for two touchdowns and added another on the ground. RB Kenyan Drake finished with 164 yards and two touchdowns, including a 69 yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to ice the game.
Lawrence Owen acknowledged on the SportsCastr News NFL stream that despite the Cowboys issues on offense, it is next to impossible to win a game when you allow the other team to gain 250+ yards on the ground.
With an injured offensive line, a RB who can’t stop fumbling, and wide receivers that can’t catch the ball, is it fair to blame Andy Dalton for the loss? Lawrence Owen certainly doesn’t think it is. Perhaps Dalton can turn the team around in coming weeks and lead them to a division title.
