Advanced analytics didn’t think the Arizona Cardinals were necessarily as bad as their 0-2 record heading into a Week 3 hosting of the 2-0 Dallas Cowboys.

Still, the Caesars Sportsbook had Dallas as a heavy, 11-point favorite. So the Cardinals’ 28-16 win on Sunday handed Dallas its largest upset loss since 2006 and third-largest over the past 25 seasons.

Non-Cowboys fans enjoyed the Arizona win. It was a flood of memes following the Cardinals handing first-year coach Jonathan Gannon his first victory on the job.

It started with known Cowboys hater Stephen A. Smith laying it on thick.

Talking head nemesis and pro-Cowboys man Skip Bayless, um, had this excruciatingly awkward video of heavy breathing and head-nodding on his mobile phone.

Artist Dave Rappoccio drew Cardinals quarterback Joshua Dobbs as Elmo in celebration of the Arizona win.

The rest of the internet-verse, by and large, found amusement in the Cowboys failing in such surprising fashion and the Cardinals looking like more than a competent football team.
