Arizona Cardinals @ DALLAS COWBOYS
To say the Cowboys first game without Dak Prescott did not go well would be an understatement. Dallas suffered a 38-10 blowout at home to the Cardinals, turning the ball over 4 times in the loss. Arizona scored 24 points off of those four turnovers.
Backup turned starting quarterback Andy Dalton struggled in his first game action with his new team, finishing 35-54 for 266 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions. Ezekiel Elliott had one of the worst games of his career, rushing for just 49 yards on 12 carries and fumbling twice. Elliott now has 4 fumbles on the season through six games.
The Dallas defense once again gave up more than 30 points, good for their fifth consecutive game. Arizona was able to gain over seven yards per play despite QB Kyler Murray completing just 9 of 22 passes. Murray and RB Kenyan Drake combined for 238 yards rushing and 3 rushing touchdowns on 30 attempts.

Baltimore Ravens @ PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
A furious fourth quarter comeback attempt was not enough to bring the Eagles all the way back from a 17-0 halftime deficit. Philadelphia was able to cut the lead to two and bring the game down to what would turn out to be a failed two point conversion, falling 30-28.
Carson Wentz and the Eagles offense struggled to do absolutely anything in the first half, posting negative net yardage for most of the half and not getting their first first down until late in the second quarter. Wentz was sacked a total of six times and was hit 16 times.
However, Wentz found a rhythm in the second half. He was able to lead the Eagles to 22 fourth quarter points but ultimately the rally fell short. His mediocre line (21-40, 213 YDS, 2 TDs) did not do his performance justice, especially considering he was just one of two original starters on offense (center Jason Kelce being the other) remaining at the game’s end. But, Wentz did have a fumble early in the game that directly led to a Baltimore touchdown.
The Eagles defense did an ok job at containing the Ravens passing game, as QB Lamar Jackson finished 16-27 for 186 yards and two touchdowns. However, the Eagles struggled to stop Jackson on the run, as the reigning MVP finished with 108 rushing yards including a 37 yard sprint straight up the middle for a touchdown. Ultimately, Philadelphia’s defense was not able to hold on long enough for their offense to come alive late in the second half.

WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM @ NEW YORK GIANTS
The Giants were able to notch their first one of the season, outlasting the Football Team by a final score of 20-19 despite being out-gained by almost 100 yards.
Daniel Jones was once again the Giants leading rusher, finishing with 7 carries for 74 yards. He still leads the team with 204 rushing yards on the season. Jones finished with just 112 passing yards on 12 of 19 with a touchdown and an interception. It was the 32nd turnover of his young career. Three of Jones’ four career wins have come against Washington.
Washington QB Kyle Allen finished 31-42 for 280 yards with a touchdown and an interception. However, Allen did have a critical fumble with just over 3:30 left in a 13-13 game that was returned for a touchdown. The Football Team rushing offense didn’t get much going either in this one, gaining just 86 yards on 24 carries. Washington has yet to have a single player rush for over 60 yards this season, the only team in the NFL to have not accomplished this feat yet.
