Cardinals hold off Cowboys' final onslaught to hand "America's Team" a tough loss

The Dallas Cowboys walked on quicksand. Four consecutive victories and the advantage of playing at AT&T Stadium mattered little. The Lone Star team could not resist the onslaught of the Arizona Cardinals and lost 25-22, with two touchdown passes by Kyler Murray.

The Cardinals quarterback led the offense with 26 effective attempts of 38 for 263 yards. In addition, every time he was pressured by the Dallas defensive line, he became more of an offensive option to carry the ball and get first downs.

Chase Edmonds came to Murray's calls with 18 carries for 53 yards. Antoine Wesley had four receptions and two touchdowns, while Christian Kirk hauled in six receptions for 79 yards.

Arizona had beaten Dallas last season 38-10, but today they repeated the dose. It was not the best afternoon for Dak Prescott, who completed 24 of 38 throws for 226 yards and three touchdown passes.

Dallas' late-zone celebrations were split between Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson and Amari Cooper, who capped Prescott's plays. However, kicker Greg Zuerlein missed a 43-yard field goal attempt that proved to be the clincher in the 4th quarter.

The Cardinals shut down the struggling Dallas running game, holding Ezekiel Elliott to 16 yards on nine carries. Prescott was the leading Dallas rusher with 20 yards.


The regular-season finales for both teams next Sunday. Arizona is home against Seattle. Dallas visits Philadelphia.
