The Dallas Cowboys were riding high coming into Week 3 as they were undefeated and had the struggling Arizona Cardinals on deck.
What looked like an easy win for the Cowboys turned into one of the most shocking upsets of the weekend as the Cardinals won, 28-16.
Arizona may have been 0-2 on paper, but the team has been more competitive than most anticipated and they showed their grit and toughness against Dallas as they controlled the line of scrimmage and dominated the ground game.
At 2-1, the Cowboys are still in a good position overall but the loss to the Cardinals does raise some questions considering they were being touted as a legitimate Super Bowl contender.
The adage goes that good teams don’t lose to bad teams and in this instance, it applies to Dallas who should have been able to win this game handily.
LeSean McCoy was asked who should be taking the brunt of the blame for the Cowboys’ surprising defeat and he called out Dak Prescott, via “Speak” on FS1.

McCoy argued that the Cowboys didn’t trust Prescott to lead them to victory early on, instead leaning on Tony Pollard and the run game.
He also emphasized the interception that Prescott threw and said it gave him more proof that Dallas is hesitant to let him throw the ball more.
It feels like an overreaction on McCoy’s part when it comes to how much the Cowboys trust Prescott, but it also doesn’t quell concerns that the quarterback might not be the right man for the job.NEXT: NBA Star Calls Out Cowboys For Performance
