The (1-1) Arizona Cardinals are hosting the (1-1) Dallas Cowboys for Monday Night Football. Kick off is at 8:30 PM ET on ESPN.

This game doesn’t affect the New England Patriots from a conference ranking or a strength of schedule perspective, and it’s way too early to be thinking about the postseason, but I feel like the Patriots would rather the Cowboys make the postseason than the Cardinals.

Dallas has a young secondary and doesn’t have an elite pass rush, while the Cardinals have a great secondary with Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu, a player that could potentially cover Rob Gronkowski in Deonne Bucannon, and a solid pass rush with Chandler Jones up front. There seems to be more potential for the Cardinals to make noise in the postseason.
