At 0-2 entering Sunday, several members of NFL Media picked against the Cardinals to beat a talented Cowboys team. After the win, the Cardinals social media team playfully reminded fans of the lack of belief in the team’s chances.

Media analysts were not the only ones heavily favoring the Cowboys. According to VSIN, 95% of moneyline bets on Sunday were placed on Dallas on DraftKings Sportsbook. Instead, the Cardinals went from +11.5 point underdogs to completing a 12-point win at home.

In the surprise of the day, Arizona made some noise in a bad loss for the Cowboys.
