Cardinals score touchdown on punt play after Cowboys returner muffs catch

Dallas Cowboys v Philadelphia Eagles

The Dallas Cowboys definitely need to do some extra work on defense and special teams in order to make sure they're ready for the new season.

Especially after their third preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Cowboys suffered a devasting 27-3 to the Cardinals on Sunday as the team suffered eight turnovers throughout the game, with three interceptions and five fumbles.

One of those mistakes came on a special teams play with just over four minutes to go in the first quarter of the game, and it was also the first score of the game.

The Cardinals were punting the ball away to the Cowboys, and wide receiver Lance Lenoir, who is in his second season with the team, tried to catch the ball on his own 10-yard line, but he muffed the catch.

The ball bounced off his hands and into the endzone, where it was eventually recovered by Trent Sherfield for the unlikeliest touchdown you will see this preseason.

Fingers crossed this mistake alone hasn't cost Lenoir a spot on the Cowboys' roster in 2018, but it certainly doesn't look good for him.

The Cardinals are undefeated in the preseason after previous wins against the New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Cowboys, on the other hand, have yet to win a preseason game after previous losses against the Cincinnati Bengals and the San Francisco 49ers.

Dak Prescott playing for the Cowboys vs Bengals

Then again, the likes of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott have hardly played for the Cowboys during the preseason, so there may not be a need to hit the panic button just yet.

However, Dallas might not be a full strength throughout the season, as Travis Fredricks is expected to miss a large chunk of the season, meaning a lot of talent will be gone from their offensive line.

We can't take any credit any from the Cardinals though as, despite the loss of Tyrann Mathieu, their defense and special teams still seem to be pretty tough to play against.
