In this unequaled and odd pandemic affected season, it now kind of seems normal to have two games on Monday night. The Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals will share the evening with the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills who had their Thursday night game rescheduled after several members of the Chiefs tested positive for COVID-19. As with everything else this year, this might be our new normal. For the last three weeks, there have been two games on a Monday twice and even a Tuesday night NFL game. We'll see how this season evolves.
As for Dak Prescott, his season is over after a horrific leg injury where was carted off the field. He is the heart and soul of the Cowboys. Prescott lost his brother this year. He then was open and honest about his anxiety and depression. He shared his experiences no matter the criticism he took. He leads by example. That was why it was so difficult to see this injury happen to Prescott who is a leader on and off the field. Even infamous Cowboys hater Stephen A. Smith was torn up by the news. Prescott seemed in good spirits when he updated fans about his injury.
He deserved to get paid with a long term contract way before this season ever started. Now that seems uncertain. Much like the Cowboys season. The hope is that he heals as soon as possible and we see him come back even stronger next year. If Prescott's resilience is any measure, he will be back in no time. With his fist raised high in the air as he was carted off, he is an inspiration and he will be vital to this team even if he's just on the sidelines.
Andy Dalton will lead the Cowboys for the rest of the season filling in for Prescott. The former Cincinnati Bengal ended his tenure with his old team by going 2-14. To be fair, Dalton should play better with a much deeper squad this time around. He went 9-11 with 111 yards after he came into the game. He has proven he can win for a long time and he should be able to keep pace for the Cowboys in the lousy NFC East.

The Cowboys face the Arizona Cardinals who are keeping pace in the treacherous NFC West. The Cowboys were able to keep Daniel Jones in check last week but Kyler Murray will be a much harder challenge. He also seems to be clicking more with DeAndre Hopkins who went for 131 yards and a score against the Jets. Dallas has a lot to play for but if the Cardinals can hold on to the ball (Murray's has eight touchdowns to six interceptions) they can come out of Dallas with a win and be on the Seahawks heals for the best record in the division.
