The three-time All-Pro cornerback for the Arizona Cardinals is getting himself in regular-season form anyway.Peterson returned an interception 30 yards for a touchdown after Dallas decided to sit quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott in what was supposed to be the dress rehearsal Brett Maher Jersey , and the Cardinals rolled to a 27-3 exhibition victory over the Cowboys on Sunday night.The Cardinals (3-0) forced eight turnovers to give them 16 takeaways in the preseason. That included two muffed punts by Dallas (0-3), the second recovered for a touchdown by Trent Sherfield to open the scoring in the first quarter.Prescott's absence made it three straight weeks that Arizona didn't face the opposing starter. San Diego's Philip Rivers skipped the opener, and Drew Brees sat for New Orleans last week."I definitely wish we would have seen some A-1 talent at the quarterback position," Peterson said. "But we still know if we play sound defense, that can happen to any of them."Sam Bradford led two largely ineffective series for the Cardinals after completing all seven of his passes in the first two preseason games. Playing without running back David Johnson and receiver Larry Fitzgerald, Bradford was 1 of 4 for 6 yards as Arizona generated just one first down.Josh Rosen, the 10th overall pick and likely backup to Bradford in the regular season, didn't play after injuring the thumb on his throwing (right) hand in practice last week. Mike Glennon directed a drive to Phil Dawson's 42-yard field goal in three second-quarter possessions, finishing 8 of 10 for 35 yards."We wanted to see a little bit more of Glennon but also didn't want to take a chance of re-injuring that thumb," coach Steve Wilks said. "We'll re-evaluate it this week and determine if we'll allow him to play in that last preseason game."The Cowboys were missing center Travis Frederick and right guard Zack Martin, part of the reason Prescott didn't play. The other reason was a longer-than-planned touchdown drive of 16 plays on Prescott's final possession of the second preseason game against Cincinnati.Owner Jerry Jones said last week he didn't need to see Elliott, the 2016 NFL rushing leader as a rookie, in a preseason game. It figures to be the first time in three seasons that Elliott, who is healthy, will miss the entire preseason since starters are generally expected to sit in the finales."We know we are trying to evaluate players out here Authentic Antwaun Woods Jersey ," Jones said. "In general, our fans don't want us to run and take unnecessary risk. That's what you saw tonight. It was almost comical, relative to the turnover situation."EARLY CELEBRATIONPeterson stepped in front of Cooper Rush's pass to Tavon Austin along the sideline and held the ball in the air most of the way on the easy stroll to the end zone. Rush, who won the backup job as a rookie with a strong preseason last year, was 11 of 17 for 93 yards with two interceptions.Peterson also forced a fumble by toppling Rod Smith when the running back tried to hurdle him. Smith was originally ruled down, but replay showed the ball coming out before his arm hit the ground. The Cardinals intercepted three passes and recovered three fumbles, not counting the muffed punts.ANOTHER MILESTONEDallas defensive end Randy Gregory had another milestone in his return after missing last season on a substance-abuse suspension. Gregory, who made his preseason debut last week, easily beat starting left tackle D.J. Humphries with a spin move to sack Bradford on Arizona's third offensive play.ANOTHER MISSING STARJohnson sitting likely signaled the end of his preseason at eight carries for 50 yards with a touchdown. Chase Edmonds had 55 yards on 11 carries. T.J. Logan, a fifth-round pick last year before spending the entire season on injured reserve, ran 59 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter.MOMENT OF SILENCEA moment of silence was held before the national anthem for the late Sen. John McCain, with his hometown Cardinals on the sideline. Fitzgerald looked up to see the image of McCain on the huge video board hanging over the center of the field, and the crowd cheered afterward. McCain died Saturday.INJURIESCardinals: RB D.J. Foster, listed third in the depth chart, injured a knee during a touchback on a kickoff and didn't return.Cowboys: Already thin at safety Youth Taco Charlton Jersey , Dallas lost Kavon Frazier to a left shoulder injury in the first quarter. He was starting in place of Xavier Woods, who injured a hamstring last week against Cincinnati.NATIONAL ANTHEMThere were no apparent protests during the pregame playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner."UP NEXTPreseason finales for both teams Thursday night: Cowboys at Houston; Cardinals at home against Denver.Jerry Jones on Jason Garrett: I think he will get us to where we want to go and that’s a championship If you ask any Dallas Cowboys fan they’ll tell you that Jason Garrett was on the hot seat before the Cowboys kicked off in Houston, and many would say he was sitting there before they kicked off the season as a whole in Carolina. Last week’s game turned up the heat, though.With a decision to punt on 4th and 1 on the Houston 42-yard line in overtime last week, Jason Garrett isolated a large contingency of whatever supporters that he had left. People felt the move helped lead to a Cowboys loss and that’s one you never want your head coach to make. While supporters do seem to be fleeing, there is one who is battening down the hatches and he’s the one who really counts - Jerry Jones.Jerry has long supported Jason Garrett time and time again throughout the almost-now eight full seasons that he’s been the head coach of the Cowboys. On the Friday after such vitriol and doubt, Jerry did it again during his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan, and he even added that he believes Garrett can still take the Cowboys to the promised land.When talking about his head coach, Jerry Jones tried to make reference to the elite education that Garrett has. The world knows how Jason is a Princeton man, but Jerry Jones accidentally referred to it as Harvard and then joked about “whatever” kind of degree Jason earned.The Dallas Cowboys are 2-3 entering their Week 6 date against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Philadelphia Eagles took care of the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football, and the Washington Redskins host the Carolina Panthers this Sunday. If Washington loses and Dallas wins, the Cowboys will be in first place in the NFC East. Is that the first step down a championship road? Jerry Jones seems to think it’s possible, at least.
