Kyler Murray's belief he cannot lose when he plays in his home state of Texas was vindicated once more by the Arizona Cardinals' victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

The Cardinals arrested a three-game losing streak with a critical 25-22 defeat of the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.

It was a win that kept their hopes of claiming a first NFC West title since 2015 alive. Should they beat the Seattle Seahawks in their regular-season finale and the Los Angeles Rams lose to the San Francisco 49ers, the Cards will win the division.

The victory also improved Murray's record at AT&T Stadium to 9-0 going back to high school and, if the Cardinals are forced to visit the venue again in the playoffs, their quarterback will not be short of confidence.

"Coming home, I feel like me personally, I can't lose coming home," Murray said. "That's the mentality. That's just how I feel.

"But it's not just about the mentality. It's about the execution, coming out and doing it.

"The guys feel great, too, when they come back here. I don't know what it is – it's a great stadium, great fans.

"When you come to Cowboys stadium, it's a big-time game. That's the feel around it. I'm glad the guys had my back today."

Expanding on his thoughts about the Cowboys' stadium, Murray added: "Just pulling up to the stadium, I don't know what the feeling is.

"I don't know how to describe it. It just brings back memories, and it just feels great."

Arizona prevailed despite missing a host of key contributors including J.J. Watt, James Conner and Rondale Moore, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury insisted his players were never deterred.

"When you don't have J.J. or you're missing James Conner or Rondale or some of those big-time playmakers on both sides of the ball, you do have some thoughts about how you're going to figure this out or move some pieces around to make it happen," said Kingsbury.

"But I don't think it was a confidence deal. Our coaches and players know we have enough talent in our locker room that is healthy and ready to roll [and] that we can play with anybody."

Asked about the prospect of playing Dallas again in the Wild Card round, Kingsbury replied: "I'd rather not, but I'm just excited to be in the playoffs. So, whoever it ends up being, we'll take it."

Murray was even more positive, declaring: "I feel fine about it. Wherever I have to go, that's what has to be done."
