Whenever the Dallas Cowboys face a ticking time bomb of an offense like the Arizona Cardinals, there is reason to fret. The Cardinals, even without receiver Anquan Boldin, are still powerful. Quarterback Kurt Warner has a QB rating of 102.5 with 10 touchdowns and 4 interceptions for already nearly 1500 yards. That’s kind of scary five games into the season.
Once again, the Achilles heel of the Cowboys is the secondary, but even the defensive line is not performing lights-out football. Yes, the Cowboys defense is underachieving and has Swiss-cheese syndrome.
Adam Jones will play in the game, and Terence Newman will not. The Cowboys are going to have to play man-to-man against this offense. Larry Fitzgerald has to be bumped at the line of scrimmage, and the defensive line MUST attack Kurt Warner. That is a lot easier said than done.
The Cowboys are second in scoring and Arizona is third. Arizona is second in the NFC with 282 yards passing and the Cowboys are third with 268 yards. The Cardinals also have a five-game winning steak going for them and they are coming off a pounding of the Buffalo Bills, who were undefeated.
This game will not be a cakewalk for the talented Dallas Cowboys.
Bob Young, of the Arizona Republic, thinks he knows how to “whip the Cowboys.”
