The Dallas Cowboys had their first big blunder of the season, and their fans will definitely hope it’s also their last.
Despite being favored by almost two touchdowns and after dominating both of their games thus far, the Cowboys fell 16-28 on the road against the 0-2 Arizona Cardinals.
The Cardinals were projected to finish with the worst record in the league, and they were fresh off blowing a 21-point lead late in the third quarter vs. the New York Giants.
That’s why their fans were still confident about a potential late-game comeback, but were also exasperated and infuriated as the game went by.
Notably, that includes Cleveland Cavaliers star Donovan Mitchell, who called them out on Twitter and urged them to stop playing with their food.
Cmon now Dallas… let’s stop playing wit our food 😑

The Cowboys overlooked the Cardinals and paid the price for it.
They allowed multiple explosive plays, and Trevon Diggs’ absence was evident several times throughout the course of the game.
Also, Dak Prescott failed to take over when his team needed him the most, which has been one of the biggest concerns for this team despite the 2-0 start to the season.
Prescott didn’t show any sense of urgency to line up quickly despite being down double digits late in the game, and even turned the ball over in the end zone.
The sole fact that the Cowboys decided to run the football with under five minutes left in the game and down two scores proves that they have no confidence in Prescott, and that’s going to be even more dangerous when they face an elite team.NEXT: Micah Parsons Gets Honest On Cowboys’ Surprising Loss To Cardinals
