Cardinals defensive back Budda Baker showed out in the first half of Arizona’s Monday Night Football matchup with the Dallas Cowboys.

With both offenses struggling to find any momentum, Baker made the first big play of the game.

He stripped Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, and the ensuing Cardinals drive was for the first touchdown of the half.

Two drives later, after another Elliott fumble, Baker blew up Dallas quarterback Andy Dalton on a blindside hit for a sack.

The huge hit had Twitter blow up in the same way that Baker did to Dalton.

Arizona led 21-3 at halftime. Kyler Murray shovel passed one touchdown to Christian Kirk and Kenyan Drake ran in the other before Murray’s 80-yard touchdown to Kirk had the Cardinals dominating. The Cardinals had the first three scores of the game.

Elliott would fumble twice in the first half, and Arizona’s first two touchdowns both came off his turnovers. Kirk’s lone two receptions of the first half were touchdowns.
