Arizona Sports predicts Cardinals vs. Cowboys

Dec 2, 2011, 7:31 PM | Updated: Dec 3, 2011, 1:39 am

The Arizona Cardinals return home after three
consecutive road games to face the hated Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys have won four straight games and lead the NFC
East with a 7-4 mark, with an offense that has been
racking up the points.

Will the Cardinals come out on top? Let us know what you
think in the comments below.

Vince Marotta The Cowboys are red-hot, having won their last four in a
row. Tony Romo has played well, throwing 10 touchdowns
during the winning streak. He’s been nails in November
during his career. But it’s not November anymore, the
Cardinals are playing pretty well themselves and have had
the Cowboys number the last two times they’ve played them.
I’ve got a feeling…

Final Score: Cardinals 27, Cowboys 24

John Gambadoro This one is easy. Tony Romo in December (7-10) is a much
different quarterback than Tony Romo in November (19-2).

The Cowboys are playing great football right now, having
won 5 of their last 6 and taking control of the NFC East.
They are due for a letdown and here it comes.

Arizona has been playing good quality defense and they
will do so again as the Cowboys bounce back to earth this
week and Romo reminds us all why we don’t like him and why
he is no Tom Brady. DeMarco Murray is very good so the key
will be to stop the run, and it does look like Miles
Austin will miss his fourth straight game with a hamstring
injury which is a big plus for Arizona. Cardinals get
three Feeley field goals and beat Dallas.

Final Score: Cardinals 23, Cowboys 20

Adam Green This used to be the game I’d circle on the schedule, as
the Cowboys would come to town and bring with them a
stadium full of people wearing blue and silver. Things got
fun in the latter part of the 90s when the Cardinals
seemingly always found a way to beat their NFC East foe.

While Arizona has experienced success against the ‘Boys in
recent years, I just can’t see them keeping up.

The Cowboys can score, either with DeMarco Murray and the
ground game or Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, Laurent Robinson and
Jason Witten and the air attack, and the Cardinals won’t
be able to keep up with a rusty Kevin Kolb who will get to
know DeMarcus Ware pretty good by the end of the

Final Score: Cowboys 31, Cardinals 13

Doug Franz There’s just no way to predict how Kolb will perform in
this game. If Kolb gets the start he’s a struggling
injured QB coming back for the first time in a month.
However, one of the major issues for Kolb was his
knowledge of the offense. I’m sure his knowledge of the
offense has improved greatly, which could lead to better

I do believe the defense has a better idea of their
individual jobs. Dockett played much better against the
Rams and maybe that’s a sign he’s going to step up.

The catch is I will never pick the Cards to beat a team
with a good TE as long as Wilson is starting at SS.
Dallas is in a dog fight with NYG for the division and in
a tie for a wild card spot.

Arizona is a better team than they were a month ago, but
they’re not as good as Dallas.

Final Score: Cowboys 24, Cardinals 14

Dave Burns I know, I know. The Cowboys are never any good in
December, in particular Tony Romo. I think there is
something different about this year’s Cowboys. DeMarco
Murray adds a whole new dimension to that team. Despite
the Cardinals success at stopping the run, I think the
rust on Kevin Kolb will prevent the offense from keeping

Final Score: Cowboys 24, Cardinals 13
Tyler Bassett Tony Romo and the Cowboys offense is too much for the
Cardinals to keep up with. The Cardinals D gives up 350+
yards of offense.

Final Score: Cowboys 31, Cardinals 17
Joe Huizenga The Cowboys are playing for playoff position…the
Cardinals…draft position. Advantage Cowboys

The Cardinals get Kevin Kolb back…the Cowboys don’t much
care who suits up for the Cardinals, they’ve got Tony
Romo. Advantage Cowboys

DeMarco Murray ran for 253 yds vs the Rams. Beanie wells
went for 228. Advantage Dallas

Patrick Peterson returns punts for the Cards…one of the
big stories out of Dallas this week is wideout Dez Bryant
looks like he’ll return punts for Dallas this week.
Advantage Cardinals

Sadly that’s the only advantage for the Red Birds.

Final Score: Cowboys 34, Cardinals 20

Charlie Feinerman The Cardinals come off a game against a struggling Rams
team to face a Dallas Cowboys team that has won 4 games in
a row without arguably two of their best weapons on
offense and defense. The Cowboys may be getting healthy,
as starting corner Mike Jenkins is set to return. If I
were Kevin Kolb I would wait another week to make my
comeback, as the thought of Levi Brown trying to block
DeMarcus Ware really scares me. If Beanie Wells has
another great game, the Cards have a shot. It may not get
ugly, but the Cowboys are at full strength and have
momentum… And Levi Brown is going to be blocking
DeMarcus Ware.

Final Score: Cowboys 38, Cardinals 20
Katy Hartley (A Cowboys fan) The Cowboys can score. The Cardinals can’t. The Cowboys
love to pass the ball. The Cardinals can’t stop a solid
passing offense. Romo is a better QB than Kolb. Dallas has
a slight edge on defense. Who can spell slaughter?

Final Score: Cowboys 31, Cardinals 14
