Cardinals will indeed see embattled Elliott

The Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals will play the final game on the schedule for Week 3 of the 2017 NFL season when they meet on "Monday Night Football".

The game is on ESPN at 8:30 p.m. EST. Now of course, the season certainly won't be over if they lose. Just win, and let's forget everything about the Denver Broncos.

"I just can't do that being one of the leaders on the team and being a guy that people count on", Elliott said. This is exactly what the Arizona Cardinals Wide Receivers demonstrated on Sunday Afternoon. The last time the Cowboys lost as badly was in 2013 against the New Orleans Saints, where they fell 49-17 to an MVP-caliber Drew Brees.

Things will not get any easier for the Dallas Cowboys rush attack. That's befitting this ".500 league, " as is an obvious offshoot: 100 percent of the 32 teams are within a game of.500.

Expose the pass coverage: As we all saw last week, Dallas still stinks in pass coverage.

To play some of the best teams in the National Football League and go deep in the playoffs, you have to have continuity on both sides of the ball. Each of those three wins came at University of Phoenix Stadium.

On this first down snap from midway through first quarter, the Cowboys are lined up in an Over front against the Broncos' balanced formation (tight end left, fullback right).

It is no secret Dallas' offense is the driver of this team. Scandrick was limited in practice Thursday and Friday, and was a full participant on Saturday.

Soccer Hosts Mississippi State on Sunday
Key blocks on the perimeter on the play came from wide receiver Jayson Stanley and fullback Christian Payne to help spring Chibb. No. 11 Georgia cruised from there, defeating their similarly-nicknamed cousins from the SEC West No. 17 Mississippi State, 31-3.

"We played the game they wanted us to play, not the game that we typically play", coach Jason Garrett said, per Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The only teams the Cardinals have played more frequently are the Chicago Bears, Washington Redskins, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants.

So what can we expect from Dak this week?

I think they will return to their 2016 form, but it will take improvement on both sides of the ball for the Cowboys if they want to return to their 13-win form.

Establish the run game: The biggest problem in their loss was the way Ezekiel Elliott was stuffed.

If the passing game can at least force the second level of Arizona's defense to be on their heels, I foresee an EXPLOSION from the rushing attack.

- Once again the Arizona Offensive line was bad against the Colts on Sunday in Indianapolis - they allowed as a unit on Sunday 4 sacks and 9 QB hits. Keep in mind all of the flack Zeke has caught this week for his lack of effort, which was very upsetting to see, but nonetheless he must be ready to let his play do the talking. Here are the top three things you need to take notice before Monday night game.

It's hard to call a Week 3 matchup a must-win game, but playing in front of a national audience after getting embarrassed is too ideal of a setup for a rebound win. "I know he's going to be there for me, for his teammates, and for this organization".
