Cowboys DE Kyle Wilber struggles to recover fumble

The Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals played one of the sloppier first halves of football you'll ever see. The Cowboys turned the ball over five times, but the Cardinals have been unable to take advantage of all their opportunities. Hey, there's a reason these teams play four exhibition games.

Midway through the second quarter, Arizona quarterback Drew Stanton was sacked and fumbled the ball. Dallas defensive end Kyle Wilber saw the ball bouncing away from him and had an easy scoop-and-score opportunity if he was able to cleanly pick up the ball. That didn't happen.

After a review, the play was overturned and the fumble was erased. All of that hard work went for nothing. At least Wilber assured himself a spot on the nightly highlight reels for the next couple weeks.
