James Conner, who delivered an impressive 106-yard performance against the Giants last week, has already accumulated 71 yards on the ground, an additional 18 through the air, and a touchdown.

Yet, it wasn’t just Conner making life difficult for the Cowboys on the ground during the first half. Quarterback Joshua Dobbs set the tone in the 1st quarter with a dazzling 44-yard run, marking the longest of his career.

Rondale Moore also joined the party with a 45-yard rush, which ended with him jogging into the endzone.

Collectively, the Cardinals have amassed an astounding 180 rushing yards, which enabled them to secure at least a field goal in all five of their first-half drives. Their ground game is averaging an impressive 12 yards per attempt.

It’s worth noting that the Cowboys had been dominating their opponents, outscoring them 44-10 in the combined first halves of Week One and Week Two.

Additionally, Dallas had allowed just 10 points in total this season entering today.

The question now looms: Can the Cardinals maintain their lead and secure their first win of the season?

Just as a reminder, Arizona held a 20-0 lead over the Giants last weekend, they went on to lose the game 31-28.
