Arizona Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys Monday Night Football second half open thread

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals missed some opportunities in the first quarter.

They didn’t miss a single opportunity in the second quarter as they raced out to a 21-point second quarter barrage and take a lead into the half 21-3.

The Cardinals and Kyler Murray struggled to in the first half, but in the second quarter they were heating up.

Kyler Murray finished the first half 8-19 for 128 yards and two touchdowns.

He really struggled to connect with Andy Isabella in the first half on two deep routes, then all of a sudden could not connect at all.

He was 3-12 at one point. He finished 5-7 with two touchdowns and has six carries for 57 yards.

The Cardinals offense was fantastic in the second quarter thanks to some great defense, lead by Budda Baker.

On two consecutive plays Ezekiel Elliot fumbles, and the Cardinals turned this turnovers into points.

Then, Kyler Murray finally connected on a deep pass, this time and 80-yard bomb to Christian Kirk and the Cardinals raced out to a 21-0 lead before giving up a late field goal with 19 seconds left.

It’s been a great first half on Monday Night Football.

Let’s hope for a strong finish for the Cardinals.
