Welcome back, Tyler Smith.
The Cowboys showed up in Arizona with a very different team from the one that dominated the two New York teams to start the year, losing 28-16 to a Cardinals team that was expected to be the worst in the NFL. The Cowboys played poorly all the way around, which meant a lot of very bad player grades from Pro Football Focus. Let’s look at some of the more notable grades from this game.
Very few players with a good grade
It should come as no surprise after a loss like that to see very few Cowboys players come away with a positive player grade. That’s the case this week, with only three players having a grade anywhere above 80. One of those is fullback Hunter Luepke, who recorded his first catch and carry and had a good day all around. However, with just eight offensive snaps in the game, his sample size is quite small.
