2. Cowboys fans need to calm down with the Super Bowl talk

With the way the Cowboys looked against the Giants in Week 1 and then the Jets in Week 2, plenty of Dallas supporters were already making travel plans for the Super Bowl in Las Vegas in February. Both on offense and defense, this team could not be stopped. Oh, those same folks are surely singing a different tune right now.

In Week 3, the Cowboys suffered a shocking loss on the road to the Arizona Cardinals. These are the same Cardinals who were up 20-0 at halftime on the Giants in Week 2, but saw NY storm back to record a thrilling 31-28 win. So, what happened for Dallas? Straight up, they just couldn't make plays late and Prescott had some more questionable decisions:

What was Dak thinking making that throw? As for the Cowboys defense, they let James Conner run for 98 yards and a TD on only 14 carries, while Josh Dobbs passed for 189 yards and a score. The tough loss in Glendale was a reminder that while the Cowboys are a team to be taken seriously, they still have a long ways to go to be in the Super Bowl conversation.
