With Tony Romo out due to back issues, the Dallas Cowboys had no semblance of an offensive attack as Brandon Weeden led the team to a 28-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
The Cowboys actually opened the scoring with a pick-six from Tyler Patmon on the Cardinals’ opening drive of the game. Dan Bailey added a 52-yard field goal to extend the Dallas lead to 10-0, but it’d be all Cardinals from that point.
Carson Palmer threw touchdown passes to John Carlson and Jason Brown in the second quarter to give Arizona the lead, 14-10.
The Cowboys looked poised to close the gap at the end of the first half, but their field goal attempt was blocked. A tackle by Jason Witten saved a touchdown, but, of course, they went into half four points down.
Arizona didn’t slow up in the second half. With touchdown runs from Andre Ellington and Marion Grice, they took a 28-10 lead.
Weeden found Dez Bryant in the end zone in the final couple of minutes to draw the gap to 28-17, but, after a failed onside kick attempt, that's where it ended.
The Cowboys will face the Jaguars in London next week.
