Where to attack the Cardinals’ secondary
If there’s one person to avoid on the Cardinals’ defense, it’s Peterson. He’s a big corner who can handle the strength of receivers like Dez Bryant. He will shadow his receiver the entire game, forcing the offense to get creative in how they get the ball to their number one target.
Rather than testing the All-Pro corner, Dallas should try to get the ball to Bryant when the Cardinals shift to zone coverage.
Arizona struggled against crossing routes last week in Indianapolis. The Colts were able to get their receivers the ball in space, allowing for yards after the catch, an area Dallas struggled in last week.
The major revelation from Arizona’s win in Indianapolis was how badly the defended tight ends. Against the Cardinals’ defense,
Brissett went eight for eight for 79 yards when targeting tight end Jack Doyle. Most of Doyle’s receptions occurred while being covered by a linebacker.
This is a major weakness the Cowboys’ can exploit, as Jason Witten has the most receptions for tight ends in the NFL and can create separation from most defensive backs.
