To compensate, the Cardinals will need a great performance from their own offense, which has sputtered at times. Arizona did eke out a win against Indianapolis in Week 2, but only managed to put up 16 points in victory. They might need to get into the 30s to have a chance against a Cowboys offense which, last season, showed a propensity to score at will.
Of course, the major storyline of Week 3 has been the pre-game protests which have taken place at each game. According to the Dallas Morning News, 12 teams entered this weekend without having had a player protest during the National Anthem by sitting, kneeling, or raising a fist at some point in the past two seasons. That number is down to six — and the Cowboys and Cardinals are two of the six.
