All eyes will be on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.
Larry Fitzgerald, Kyler Murray and Co. will face off against the Dallas Cowboys for Monday Night Football on Oct. 19. The game is scheduled to begin at 5:15 p.m.
Murray will try to add to his legend of Texas football: AT&T Stadium is just 47 miles away from Allen High School, where the quarterback posted a 43-0 record and led his team to three straight state championships.
Arizona needs some of that Texas power. The last time the Cardinals played in Monday Night Football game was in early 2017, also against the Cowboys. Dallas won 28-17.
History has not treated the Cardinals well on Monday night, as they are 5-9 since moving to Arizona, but they have won three of their last four appearances going back to 2014.

That’s not Arizona’s only primetime game this season. The Cardinals are scheduled to play the Seattle Seahawks for Thursday Night Football at 6:20 p.m. on Nov. 11.
Arizona also has a flex in Week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers. The schedule said the game will take place on either Saturday, Dec. 26 or Sunday, Dec. 27.
If the season plays out the way Cardinals fans hope, this game would be key in rivaling the division foe for a playoff spot.
With at least two primetime games this season, the Cardinals have more than they did last year. They lost to the 49ers in Week 9 on Thursday Night Football last season.
