Since 2008, the Arizona Cardinals have held a somewhat surprising 6-1 record against the Dallas Cowboys; however, this Sunday, it may be a different story.
Entering Week 3, the Cowboys hold a +60-point differential as they have dismantled both the Giants and Jets to start the season. Second to the Cowboys in point differential are the 49ers at +30.
Playing a large role in this early success is their defense, which is leading the NFL in fewest yards per game (193), fewest passing yards per game (107), fewest points per game (5.0), and seven total turnovers.
Because of this defensive performance, the Cowboys are -650 favorites against the Cardinals.
And, according to Cardinals veteran TE Zach Ertz, these odds are for good reason. Video credit goes to @PHNX_Cardinals.
“I think this is the 19th time I’ve played these guys in my career, and think this is the fastest they’ve looked.”

For reference, Zach Ertz spent the majority of his career in the NFC East with the Eagles, which means he has quite a bit of experience against the Cowboys.
In total, the 32-year-old TE has played Dallas 17 times; he has averaged 43.2 yards per game in this span.
Kickoff for this Week 3 matchup will be this Sunday at 1:25 PM.
