Are the Dallas Cowboys in trouble?

Are the Dallas Cowboys in trouble?

In Week 3, Elliott and company will try to bounce back as they go on the road to face the struggling Arizona Cardinals.

If the Cowboys want to win games and be a contender this year, they need to improve on offense, and get healthy on defense. Arians was asked if Phoenix can use Denver's defense as a blueprint for success Monday night against the Cowboys. This is one of those matchups that somewhat makes you cringe and Cowboys quarterback, Dak Prescott should find better targets down the field.

Now the Cardinals run defense is not bad but are they better than the New York Giants or the Broncos?

That criticism included more than just his performance. It's definitely not who I am for this team. The Cardinals lost their top running back David Johnson, who will likely be out until November.

Elliott stood with his hands on his hips after Chris Harris Jr. collected a deflected ball off Dez Bryant's hands for the first pick of Dak Prescott. Cole Beasley had 33 yards in four catches. "I know the type of football player he is and I know the type of guy he is". Arizona was third in opponents' yards per carry last season, and they rank fourth through two games in 2017. Dak can not miss windows like he did against the Broncos but he will likely have more space and his receivers should get more separation against the Cardinals. It was a surprising performance from the former fourth-round pick, as he only had four career interceptions before the contest.

Jake LaMotta Was More Than Just a 'Raging Bull'
Mobsters had a great deal of control over boxing during LaMotta's career but he refused to take on a Mafia-connected manager. Garnering an incredible 106 bouts on his professional record, LaMotta fought often during his almost 14-year career.

Even better, Dalton said Cardinals rookie Budda Baker and Cowboys rookie Noah Brown weren't even born yet when this game was played. So far this season he has a 2-4 touchdown to interception ratio and has not reached a QBR of 100 in two games.

The Cardinals defense is good, but they likely won't be able to dominate the Cowboys' offensive line the way that the Broncos did.

The Cowboys are relying on veteran cornerbacks Orlando Scandrick and Nolan Carroll to return from injury.

Defensive end Demarcus Lawrence registered two sacks, one which caused a fumble that led to a Dallas touchdown.

In this week's entry, our Guess the Gameplan series looks at three ways the Arizona Cardinals will try to spark their offense and win two games in a row.
