    The Cards traveled to the house Jerry built in week 4 riding a 2 game winning streak behind strong play from QB Jason Merian. Lacking in those 2 wins was a consistent running game as Ryan Williams had yet to regain his form from 2 seasons ago. However, that all changed in week 4. The Cards were finally able to get a running game going with Williams rushing for 117 yards and 2 touchdowns on 17 carries, Jahvid Best ran for 126 yards on 6 carries and Merian even got into the action rushing for 38 yards and a touchdown of his own. Merian also had a great day with his arm as he finished 13-15 for 212 yards and 2 touchdowns for his 2nd perfect QB rating this season. While the Cards offense had a great day, they suffered a huge loss when rookie speedster Terrance King went down early and will be lost for 5 weeks with an abdominal tear. It will now be up to youngster's Darius Crayton and Justin Griffin to step up and try to fill the void left by King.

    Final score: Cards 41 Cowboys 14
