The Arizona Cardinals remained perfect last season with a 27-3 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at the AT & T Stadium.
Arizona drew 3-0 while The Cowboys fell to 0-3 in a game notable for those who did not play ̵
It was especially ugly performance for the Cowboys, who turned it around eight times and lost in the blow-out style, though Arizona only scored an offensive touchdown.
Far too early to panic over the Cowboys' Rushing Attack
The Cowboys had lost an average of 2.5 yards per carry on Sunday, as Rod Smith (seven) and Bo Scarbrough (seven Carry) received the lion's share of the work and fought
For the Cowboys' ground combat this preseason, it was as usual:

In the first nine quarters of the preseason cowboys had four runs account for 74 yards. Your other 56 carry 138 yards, good for 2.5 yards per carry. There's no sound of the alarms, especially without Ezekiel … https://t.co/LNNMUF0kBq
It would be easy for Dallas fans to look at these numbers and break into panic mode, but the absence of Prescott meant The Cardinals did not have to worry about his demise and were able to adjust accordingly in the pits against an offensive line, which is affected by considerable wear.
Clarence Hill Jr. from Star Telegram reported offensive attacks Tyron Smith has a "slight hamstring" setback, guard Zack Martin was having a knee injury and middle Travis Frederick was outside after he on Twitter he was diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder of Guillain-Barre syndrome with no schedule to return.
While Frederick may not be available for a long time, the regular season version of the Cowboys will have a stronger offensive line, Prescott available to force the defense to be honest and Elliott to serve as an ag serve-change. If somebody can play Superman for the Cowboys, Elliott is, having counted 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns on the floor as a rookie and 983 yards in 10 games in 2016.
The Dallas Rushing attack in September and October will be much different than August's.
Randy Gregory is Making Pro Bowler
Sunday's game was pretty much forgotten from Dallas's perspective, but there was at least one positive take-away – the Cardinals could not block Randy Gregory ,
Gregory finished with three tackles, a sack and two quarterback hits, according to ESPN.com and looked like a five-year veteran beating his best, rather than someone who spent nearly two seasons of action missed and bounced back as an important contribution
He unleashed spin moves, accelerated the edge and power of attacking the interior, and proved to be a defensive element for Dallas if he could stay on the field.

Randy Gregory has 2 games played and barely practiced since 2015, but he went straight in
The Cowboys picked Gregory in 2015 with a pick in the second round and he played 12 games as a rookie before missing out on all but two contests in 2016, because he violated the League's drug abuse policy. He was then suspended another year before the 2016 playoffs and has not played a regular season game since Dallas.
The NFL has reinstated him in this off-season, and he already looks like a pro bowler from manufacturing despite missing action.

"I can not tell you how scary this must be for teams in the NFC East." -Cris Collinsworth when it comes to Randy Gregory

If Randy Gregory can finally be who Dallas hoped he was … this cowboy defense has a chance, really Being Good  This is a worrying thought when it comes to fighting offensive lines, especially since they can not afford to send many double teams with Demarcus Lawrence to the other defensive end position. Lawrence was a Pro Bowler last year with 14.5 sacks, and Tyrone Crawford and Taco Charlton also offer good quality.
Dallas was in mid-15th in the league in sacks last year, but that sum will improve dramatically when Gregory showed Sunday remains alongside these other parts for the regular season.
Patrick Peterson will thrive in the zone as a revenue generating machine
Defender Patrick Peterson has little to prove, but in 2018, new head coach Steve Wilks and new defensive coordinator Al Holcomb will change their course.
New will feature more production for the seven-time Pro Bowler and the three-time First Team All-Pro member after receiving an interception last year.
Peterson returned a Cooper Rush interception for a touchdown, forcing a Smith fumble in the first half, thriving in his role in the Arizona area. He was not the only defender to play games when Trent Sherfield recovered one of Lance Lenoir's two muffed punts for a touchdown, before Budda Baker prevented a cowboy's chance of catching in the end zone.

The Patrick Peterson interception was unbelievable to see in person. What. A. Beast.
According to Kyle Odegard from the official website of the Teams, the combination of Holcomb and Wilks means that Arizona will play more zone this year, and Peterson looked comfortable as a frugal Sunday causing sales.
The zone means he will not have his back to quarterback while keeping pace with the opponent's best receiver and giving him a bit more freedom to improvise on games when he has a chance as a playmaker's defensive leader perceives.
Opposing offenses are officially noted.
The Cowboys and Cardinals end Thursday's preseason against the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos respectively. It would be a surprise if the starters of both teams would see a significant time in the final competition before the start of the 2018 season.
