The Cowboys defense has forced punts on Arizona's first three possessions. That's the first time that has happened to open a game this season. Atlanta punted on its first two possessions. The only other time the opposing offense has punted three straight times vs. the Cowboys came in the opener against the Rams at the end of the game. The New York Giants punted just twice last week against the Cowboys.

Cowboys inactives: QB Garrett Gilbert, WR Malik Turner, DB Saivion Smith, S Reggie Robinson, LB Rashad Smith, LB Luke Gifford. With Leighton Vander Esch returning, Cowboys go with only five linebackers on the active roster. Something of a surprise.

Primetime games have not been kind to Andy Dalton. He is 6-15 as a starter, which is the second lowest winning percentage among 33 quarterbacks with 10 or more primetime starts since 2011. Case Keenum has the lowest (.273). On "Monday Night Football," Dalton is 2-5 as a starter with six touchdowns, five interceptions and he has been sacked 21 times, including eight last year in a 27-3 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

NFL Live- Baker Bust?, Did Last Night say more about GB or "Tompa" Bay?, Preview of Monday Night Doubleheader

Host Laura Rutledge, along with Marcus Spears, Dan Orlovsky and Mina Kimes, react to a busy Week 6 in the NFL season, as well as preview a Monday Night doubleheader between the Chiefs v. Bills and Cardinals v. Cowboys. Did the Steelers show that they belong in the same conversation as the Chiefs in the AFC, or did the Browns just show that "they are who we thought they were." Was yesterday just a blip on Green Bay's radar or is Tampa Bay rounding into form and showing that they are the team to beat in the NFC. The crew dives into all that and much more on another Monday in the weirdest season to date.

The Cowboys planned to activate Cam Erving off injured reserve to serve as the swing tackle Monday vs. Arizona but he reported some sickness. The next option was to place him on the COVID-19 list but that was not allowed, according to sources. Erving and the entire organization has tested negative. Erving remains on IR and is eligible to return next week.

The Cowboys will sign Justin Hamilton to their 53-man roster, replacing Trysten Hill to fill a defensive tackle need. Hill suffered a torn ACL last week. Mike McCarthy said he prefers to promote from within when it comes to filling roster spots and has been pleased with Hamilton's work. Also look for safety Steven Parker and center Marcus Henry to be called up from the practice squad for tonight's game against Arizona.

The Cowboys know how much of a threat Kyler Murray can be so discipline in their pass rush will be a key. “I really feel like we just need to rush together and do our jobs. I think if we're thinking too much of what he's going to do and what he's capable of, then it just puts us in a position that we're thinking too much and we're not making plays,” Aldon Smith said. “And I think everyone knows what their job is. So when we do our jobs and play with confidence, we'll make plays."

In 2004, Kliff Kingsbury was on New Orleans' practice squad when Mike McCarthy was the Saints offensive coordinator. McCarthy first saw Kingsbury play while at Texas Tech and was impressed during their time with the Saints. “Had a great mind for the position and obviously for the game of football,” he said. “But no surprise at all he's having the success that he's having as a coach. I was very, very impressed with Kliff at a young age."

Leighton Vander Esch appears to be on track to play Monday against Arizona after missing the last four games because of a broken collarbone.

Cowboys owner and GM Jerry Jones had high praise for Arizona QB Kyler Murray, who is 6-0 all-time at AT&T Stadium, entering Monday's game. “He is a mess in terms of a challenge to the defense,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan Friday. “He's probably in the top 10 of any talented player that has played in that stadium. He is just so unique in his ability to keep plays alive and then not only to have that athletic ability, but then have that speed to go with it.”

What was the first practice without Dak Prescott like? “You can never take for granted the presence and the command of Dak Prescott. It was definitely noticeable,” Mike McCarthy said. “It hit me from the practice structure when I went out to the quarterback school, not having him there with the two quarterbacks. But you have to turn the page on all injury situations. I think we were so fortunate and blessed to have Andy Dalton … I thought we had a good day and that's a real credit to Andy.”
