WEEK NINE – vs. Arizona
A third straight home game and the fourth home game against a team who had ten or more wins the previous season has the Arizona Cardinals come to town. Arizona is no joke defensively, solid in all three levels. The weakness of the Cardinals comes when you can pressure their quarterback and challenge them to run more than they would like to. A win here would be huge, given that the lowly Jags are up next and present the Cowboys with an opportunity to win four games in a row as well as be 7-3. That all sounds too good to be true for this team so I have to believe that this is another one of those head-scratching, how did they lose that game type games and Arizona wins with a late field goal pushing Dallas to 5-4.
