Every week there is a team that happens to surprise people, and in Week 3 that was the Arizona Cardinals as they were able to stun the Dallas Cowboys.
The Cowboys entered the day as heavy betting favorites to pick up their third consecutive win, but instead saw their defense gashed on the ground by the Cardinals.
James Conner led the way with 14 carries for 98 yards and a rushing touchdown while Joshua Dobbs pitched in with six carries for another 55 yards.
However, perhaps the most embarrassing play for Dallas was when they let Rondale Moore torch them for 55 yards and a score on the ground.
Meanwhile, Dak Prescott and the Cowboys offense tried to play catch-up all afternoon but just couldn’t build enough momentum to get the job done.
It was an embarrassing effort from Dallas and analysts like Chris Broussard had no problem calling them out for it, via “First Things First.”
“F-GAME! The Cowboys brought their F-game to Arizona!!” Broussard said.

Broussard really lets the Cowboys hear it in the video clip as he laid out all the good things people were saying about the team before they lost to the Cardinals.
He also blasts them for how highly-regarded the defense was because they allowed 28 points to Dobbs and the rest of the Arizona offense.
The Cardinals should be getting more credit for how they were able to outplay the Cowboys, but the fact remains that Dallas needed to win this game to prove that they should be considered a serious Super Bowl contender.
Now, the Cowboys are going to have to prove this was a blip in Week 4.NEXT: LeSean McCoy Blames 1 Person For Cowboys' Loss
