Can the Cowboys pick up another win without their starting quarterback?
The Dallas Cowboys face their first big test without Dak Prescot on Monday night against the Arizona Cardinals. The Cowboys have never had to play a game without Prescott since he took over the starting QB duties in 2016. Andy Dalton is the main man now, and Monday will give us our first big clue on how how he will perform.
So just how are NFL observers viewing this brave new world for the Cowboys? Here are what some experts think as they share their picks for the Cowboys week six game versus the Cardinals.
CBSSPORTS (Will Brinson): Cardinals 28, Cowboys 21
Andy Dalton in prime time? Yes, I will fade him. I actually think Dalton will play well in this spot, with Chandler Jones out for the Cardinals and the weapons he has at his disposal. But the Cowboys are dealing with major offensive line issues and Dalton without protection is a problem. The Cowboys defense is impressively bad and Kyler Murray/DeAndre Hopkins should be able to attack them through the air.
