The Cowboys starting quarterback Dak Prescott will see only a series or two in the opener. There is a competition for the backup position. Kellen Moore who missed last season with a broken leg is among the candidates to earn the backup role. 14 year veteran Luke McCown saw no action in 2016 but did start one game for the New Orleans Saints in 2015. Also in camp for Dallas is Zac Dysert out of Miami Ohio. Also expecting to see action is rookie Cooper Rush out of Central Michigan. Cowboys have depth behind Ezekiel Elliot. Veterans Darren McFadden, Ronnie Hillman and Alfred Morris will compete for carries in the Cowboys backfield. It will be interesting to see the play of the offensive line. The Cowboys are replacing two starters from that very good unit from 2016. Dallas made changes to their secondary and is trying to improve pressure on the quarterback after getting exposed by Aaron Rodgers in their playoff defeat.

Arizona head coach Bruce Arians announced that he will rest all his starters in the opener. Carson Palmer is getting up in age so the Cardinals have to start thinking for life without their starting quarterback at some point. Palmer lacks mobility and despite a capable running game in Arizona last year the Cardinals still struggled to win games as they failed to make the playoffs with a 7-8-1 record. Seven year veteran Blaine Gabbert is competing for the backup role in Arizona. He has spent time with the Jacksonville Jaguars and San Francisco 49ers. Drew Stanton is an 11 year veteran who enters his fifth year with the team.
