Struggling Cardinals have lots on their plate

Points may be at a premium

Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer has struggled
1 of 1

Sky Sports Action, 1.30am Monday night

Last week's 42-17 defeat to Denver has provided Dallas with plenty of food for thought and they will be anxious to demonstrate that they are Super Bowl contenders in front of the Monday Night Football cameras when they head to the desert to play Arizona.

The Cowboys could not get their running game going at all against the Broncos, which led some to question running back Ezekiel Elliott's contribution as their celebrated offensive line struggled to create space.

It was a miserable trip to the Rockies, but Arizona will not be delighted with the way their first two games have gone.

Their offence has been particularly problematic, especially as star running back David Johnson has been sidelined for three months with a wrist injury and the years look to be catching up on quarterback Carson Palmer.

It could be up to receiver Larry Fitzgerald to lead the charge, but although the Cowboys struggled against the pass when they faced Denver, it could be tough for him to shoulder the majority of the burden.

Having lost their opening game to Detroit, when they conceded three fourth-quarter touchdowns, they limped over the line against a poor Indianapolis team in overtime after being gifted a turnover by Colts stand-in quarterback Jacoby Brissett.

Arizona have not convinced that they will be big challengers in the NFC this season and it would be no surprise if their clash with the Cowboys turned out to be a low-scoring affair.
