The Arizona Cardinals play their first home game of the preseason Saturday afternoon, hosting the Dallas Cowboys. Kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m. ET at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. Nationwide television coverage is available on NFL Network.
The Cardinals shut out the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in their preseason opener. Rookie halfback Stepfan Taylor led the Cardinals offense with 64 yards on 20 carries, new starting quarterback Carson Palmer completed 4-of-6 pass attempts for 77 yards and a touchdown in limited action and rookie defensive back Tyrann Mathieu's performance was the talk of Arizona camp this week. The Honey Badger will make his first start Saturday.
Dallas has already played two preseason games by virtue of its participation in the Hall of Fame Game. After holding off a late rally by the Dolphins in Canton, the Cowboys dropped last week's game against the Raiders in Oakland. Backup running backs Joseph Randle and Phillip Tanner have gotten the lion's share of the team's carries, with quarterback Tony Romo looking good in limited action.
