Cowboys vs. Cardinals live score, updates, highlights from NFL's 'Monday Night Football' game

The Week 6 “Monday Night Football” game between the Cardinals and Cowboys will be a somber affair early for Dallas fans.

The Cowboys will take the field without quarterback Dak Prescott, who suffered a fractured and dislocated ankle against the Giants on Oct. 11. As painful as his loss is for Dallas, however, the team will be seeking a second consecutive win with backup Andy Dalton under center. The 10-year NFL veteran came on in place of Prescott following the injury and completed 9 of 11 passes for 111 yards in a 37-34 victory over New York.

Arizona, meanwhile, will be looking to start its own positive streak following a 30-10 victory last week over the Jets: The Week 5 win followed losses to the Lions and Panthers in consecutive weeks. To that end, look for Kyler Murray — who is 42-0 while playing high school football in Texas and 6-0 in AT&T Stadium — to use both his passing and running ability against a defense that ranks 26th in the NFL in total defense (404.4 yards per game) and 30th in rush defense (155.8 yards per game). But how will the loss of Chandler Jones affect the Cardinals’ chances?

Cowboys vs. Cardinals live updates, highlights from ‘Monday Night Football’

First quarter: Cowboys 0, Cardinals 0

(All times ET)

8:38 p.m.: Cards to take over at their 49 after the punt.

8:36 p.m.: Another near disaster for Dallas: Linebacker Dennis Gardeck had Dalton dead to rights in the end zone — had his legs wrapped up and everything — but somehow the Cowboys quarterback passes to Elliott for an incomplete pass. The Cowboys will punt on fourth-and-11 from their 9, and that’s the best thing to come from that drive.

8:34 p.m.: Wow, Andy Dalton just gifted an interception to Jordan Hicks, who dropped it at the Dallas 25. It could not have been any easier. Then the Cowboys are called for a 5-yard penalty after having 12 men in the huddle. Terrible start to their second drive.

8:31 p.m.: A promising drive ends after Murray again misses Isabella on a deep route; appears to have been some miscommunication there. The Cardinals punt from the Dallas 40, pinning the Cowboys at their 10.

8:28 p.m.: Arizona gets a couple first downs on consecutive plays: a 6-yard reception by Larry Fitzgerald on third-and-5 and a 15-yard draw by Murray to the Dallas 40.

8:27 p.m.: Murray finds tight end Darrell Daniels in the flat for a yard and the team’s first third down of the day. The drive continues at Arizona’s 34.

8:21 p.m.: Dallas goes to Ezekiel Elliott three straight times (one rush and two passes) but he only nets 4 yards. The Cowboys have their own three-and-out and the Cardinals will take over at their 24 following the punt.

8:18 p.m.: Kyler Murray had Andy Isabella open between two Cowboys safety on a long ball, but couldn’t connect; Arizona will punt on fourth-and-6 after a three-and-out.

8:15 p.m.: The Cowboys win the toss and defer; the Cardinals take a touchback on the kickoff and start their drive at the 25-yard line.
