How Arizona Beat Dallas on Sunday
The Cardinals snapped their three-game losing streak against the Cowboys, thanks in large part to the play of third-year quarterback Kyler Murray.
Murray, who has battled injuries all year, threw for 263 yards and a pair of touchdowns to Antoine Wesley. Arizona outgained Dallas 399-301, and managed to avoid committing any turnovers.
The Cardinals also benefitted from the steely right foot of veteran kicker Matt Prater, who connected on four field goals — from 24, 53, 26, and 38 yards.
Murray, who is from the Dallas area, told reporters AT&T Stadium is like a home away from home for him.
"Coming home, I can't lose coming home," Murray said. "That's just how I feel. I'm not worried about two weeks from now. We got Seahawks next week, divisional game at home. The guys will come ready to play."
Murray is now 9-0 at the stadium, including three Texas high school state championship games, a Big 12 Championship with the Oklahoma Sooners, and a pair of wins with the Cardinals.
Sunday’s 25-22 win follows last year’s 38-10 shellacking of the Cowboys that Murray took part in, giving the QB further bragging rights deep in the heart of Texas.
Cardinals’ NFL Playoff Seed Entering Week 18
The Cardinals are currently the fifth seed in the NFC playoffs, trailing the L.A. Rams by a game in the NFC West chase.
Arizona can clinch the NFC West title with a win over Seattle and a Rams loss to San Francisco on Sunday.
A win for the Rams would clinch the division, forcing the Cardinals to either play the Cowboys or Tampa Bay in the NFC Wild Card round.
Regardless of Sunday’s result against the Seahawks, the Cardinals have clinched their first playoff berth since 2015, giving Arizona fans reason to celebrate as the team enters its final regular season contest Sunday.
