ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Patrick Peterson has not seen a starting quarterback in the preseason.

The Cardinals (3-0) forced eight turnovers to give them 16 snacks in the preseason. Among them were two misspelled punts from Dallas (0-3), the second recovered from a touchdown by Trent Sherfield to score in the first quarter.
Prescott's absence made it three weeks in a row that Arizona did not play against the opposing starter. San Diego's Philip Rivers missed the start, and Drew Brees sat in New Orleans last week.
"I wish we'd seen an A-1 talent in the quarterback position," Peterson said. "But we still know if we are playing a solid defense, that can happen to anyone."
Sam Bradford ran two largely ineffective series for the Cardinals after completing all seven of his passes in the first two preparatory matches. Bradford played 1: 4 for 6 yards without David Johnson and the receiver Larry Fitzgerald running back while Arizona only made a first mistake.
Josh Rosen, the 10th overall point and likely substitute for Bradford in the regular season, did not play this after injuring his thumb on his (right) throwing hand last week in practice. Mike Glennon headed up Phil Dawson's 42-yard field goal in three second-tier possessions, finishing 8 of 10 for 35 yards.
& # 39; & # 39; We wanted to see a little bit more of Glennon, but we also did not want a chance to hurt that thumb again, "said coach Steve Wilks. & # 39; & # 39; We will reevaluate it this week and determine if we allow him to & # 39;
The Cowboys missed center Travis Frederick and right guard Zack Martin, part of the reason Prescott had not played The other reason was a longer than planned touchdown drive 16 games on Prescott's recent possession of the second pre-season fixture against Cincinnati.
Owner Jerry Jones said last week that he did not need to see Elliott, the 2016 NFL Rushing Leader as a rookie, in a preseason game three seasons that Elliott, who is healthy, will miss the entire preseason as the starters will normally sit in the finals.
"We know we're trying to score players out here," Jones said Generally, our fans do not want us to run and take unnecessary risks. You saw that tonight. It was almost funny, relative to turnover.
Peterson stepped in front of Cooper Rush's pass to Tavon Austin on the sideline, holding the ball most of the way on the easy walk in the air to the end zone.Rush, who joined the rookie last year a strong preseason rookie win was 11 out of 17 for 93 yards with two interceptions.
Peterson also forced a fumble by overthrowing Rod Smith when the running back tried to overcome him. Smith was initially ruled out, but repeat showed the ball coming out before his arm hit the ground.The Cardinals cleared three passes and recovered three times without counting the muffins.
Dallas defensive end Randy Gregory had another milestone in Returning after missing out on a drug abuse ban last season, Gregory made his debut in the preseason last week, beating easily against the left attack D.J. One-turn humphries move to dismiss Bradford at Arizona's third offensive.
Another Missing Star
Sitting in Johnson probably signaled the end of his preseason at eight carriers for 50 yards with a touchdown. Chase Edmonds had 55 yards on 11 carry. T.J. Logan, who went into the fifth round last year before spending the entire season on injured reserve, ran 59 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter.
MOMENT OF SILENCE
A moment of silence preceded the national anthem for later Senator John McCain, with his hometown cardinals on the sidelines. Fitzgerald looked up and saw the picture of McCain on the huge video board hanging over the middle of the field, and the crowd cheered for it. McCain died on Saturday.
Cardinals: RB D.J. Foster, the third in the deep chart, injured a knee-kick on a touchback and did not return.
Cowboys: Dallas lost in the first quarter against Kavon Frazier due to a left shoulder injury. He started in place of Xavier Woods, who injured a thigh injury against Cincinnati last week.
There were no obvious protests during the prelude of "The Star-Spangled Banner".
Preseason Final for both teams Thursday Night: Cowboys in Houston; Cardinals at home against Denver.
