Cardinals (3-2) at Cowboys (2-3)

Monday, 8:15 p.m. ET | ESPN

Matchup rating:
37.4 | Spread: ARI -1.5 (55)

What to watch for: Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is 6-0 all time at AT&T Stadium. He went 5-0 while at Allen High School, including three state championships, and 1-0 with Oklahoma, winning the Big 12 championship. The Cowboys are well aware of what he means to Arizona's offense. "He has a unique skill set. He's so quick and explosive, and he can get the ball out of his hand very quickly," Dallas coach Mike McCarthy said. "Obviously he can make any throw, he can hit all the quadrants of the field, and he's leading the league in rushing as quarterbacks. So I think that in itself tells you the stress that he puts on your defense. ... He's a dynamic player and he's definitely the centerpiece of that offense." -- Todd Archer

Bold prediction: Murray will throw for 350 yards and run for another 100 in a reminder to everyone in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex that he's a legend there for a reason. -- Josh Weinfuss

Stat to know: The Cowboys have 11 turnovers this season, tied for most in the NFL. But the Cardinals have three takeaways, tied for the third fewest.
