Cowboys Stumble In Arizona, 28-16

The Cowboys will now have something to prove as they look to figure out what went wrong.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Dallas Cowboys suffered their first loss of the 2023 season, falling 28-16 to the Arizona Cardinals (1-2) at State Farm Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Story: Dallas was shaky on both ends of the football, with blown coverage on defense to quarterback Dak Prescott looking lost without his offensive line to protect him.

  • The Cowboys’ defense looked good in the first two weeks of the season but Sunday saw it allow Arizona to score on all five of their first-half possessions.
  • After Dallas cut the Arizona lead to 21-16, Cardinals rookie receiver Michael Wilson was left wide open for a 69-yard gain, leading to another touchdown.
  • Prescott completed 25 of 40 passes for 249 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

“This was a humbling loss,” Prescott said. “We thought we had a good opportunity to come in here even with the adversity and get a win and we didn’t.”

The injury bug bites: The Cowboys came into the game with injuries, most notably losing Trevon Diggs to a torn ACL during practice; and then Sunday saw Zack Martin, Tyler Biadasz, and Tyron Smith all be added to the injury report.

  • Dallas was called for 13 penalties, which put them back over 107 yards.
  • The Cowboys will now have something to prove as they look to figure out what went wrong.

“I’ve got to make a better throw, put a better pass out there, and try to get it out in front of him,” Prescott said.

Up next: The Cowboys are now 2-1 on the season and will return home next weekend to face the New England Patriots at 3:25 p.m. at AT&T Stadium.
