The Cardinals have plenty of pieces, but haven’t put it together yet.
This Cowboys offense was built to destroy any defense they might face. Dak Prescott had a bevvy of weapons in Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, CeeDee Lamb, Cedrick Wilson, and Blake Jarwin, as well as having both Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard in the running game, and it was all operating behind one of the most talented offensive lines in the league.
Five games in and that’s all changed. The offensive line has suffered injuries, with both Tyron Smith and La’el Collins out for the year, and Joe Looney’s prolonged absence has thrust rookie Tyler Biadasz into the starting lineup. Jarwin tore his ACL in the first game, pushing Dalton Schultz into a receiving role, while the ground game has been spotty this year. And to top it all off, Prescott is out for the year now, with Andy Dalton taking over going forward.
