The Dallas Cowboys will look to redeem themselves from a loss to the Washington Redskins as they take on the Arizona Cardinals, but they may have to do so without Tony Romo.
Redskins upset Cowboys – Washington Redskins shock Dallas Cowboys, 20-17, in overtime
Cardinals beat Eagles – Arizona Cardinals defeat Philadelphia Eagles, 24-20
Jason Garrett on Tony Romo – Cowboys head coach optimistic about quarterback
The Dallas Cowboys showed that they are human as they lost to the Washington Redskins, 20-17, in overtime on Monday Night Football.
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was taken out in the third quarter with a back contusion, and he did not look the same after returning to the game.
Unfortunately, the Cowboys are not expected to give Romo the start and instead hand the reins to Brandon Weeden, who looked promising against the Redskins.
Running back DeMarco Murray had his eighth consecutive 100-yard rushing game, and he will likely take on an even bigger role in the offense.
Meanwhile, the Cardinals are coming off a 24-20 victory against the Philadelphia Eagles. Quarterback Carson Palmer threw the game-winning touchdown pass to wide receiver John Brown, and the defense held firm on the Eagles’ final drive.
Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald had his best game of the season by catching seven passes for 160 yards and a touchdown.
If the Cardinals defense can hold Murray and force Weeden to win the game, they should have no problem cruising to a victory. Murray rushing for 100 yards again will be difficult against an elite Cardinals run defense.
Prediction: Cardinals 24, Cowboys 17
