Week 3: vs Dallas Cowboys

All RB vs DAL

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Cardinals backfield is a mess with the injury of David Johnson in Week 1. Their three backs rushed for only 77 yards last week, with veteran Chris Johnson leading the way (11 carries for 44 yards) despite being out-snapped 18 to 17 by Kerwynn Williams, who rushed nine times for only 22 yards. Andre Ellington was in the backfield for 30 snaps but was only allotted two carries as he is their pass-catching threat. The Cardinals had a tough time sustaining drives, which can mainly be attributed to this struggling run game. Their offensive line was decent despite the loss starting left tackle D.J. Humphries in Week 1. The Cowboys run defense was gashed repeatedly by CJ Anderson and Jamaal Charles on Sunday night last week. Both Broncos backs combined for a total of 164 rushing yards on 34 attempts, with Anderson breaking off a 23-yard touchdown run in the third quarter in addition to another receiving touchdown out of the backfield earlier in the game. The Cowboys defensive line simply could not get off blocks to catch Anderson, who routinely made the secondary miss and ran through tackles. Demarcus Lawrence played very well on the left side with four run stops, and this week he will match up against the Cardinals weaker right side tackle. This Cowboys defense really took a step back next week, but the Cardinals backfield is one that is tough to trust given the uncertainty brewing among their three backs competing for snaps.
