Dak Prescott is out for the year, which means Andy Dalton will draw the start in this massive total and fast-paced contest. The Cowboys will be without their starting quarterback for the first time in four years, while already missing Tyron Smith and La’el Collins along the offensive line.
Pace and Play Calling Tendencies
The pace for this game is out of control, and it’s a little tilting that it wasn’t on the Week 6 main slate. Dallas and Arizona rank first and second in situation-neutral pace, respectively, and they both rank inside the top nine in plays per game. There’s a range of outcomes that includes the Cowboys trying to slow their pace of play down without their franchise quarterback, so keep that in mind when building DAL-focused lineups.
While Dallas ranks first in neutral pass rate, Arizona ranks towards the bottom at 53% pass in such situations.
