Stephen A. is known for his disdain for the Cowboys and began Monday’s show by teasing their weekend loss to the Cardinals.
Both teams entered the game on opposite ends of the spectrum – Dallas started the season 2-0, while Arizona remained winless at 0-2.
Stephen A began his opening monologue by mocking his botched first-pitch throw at the New York Yankees game and comparing it to an interception by Cowboys QB Dak Prescott.
“I know that pitch made me look bad. I know it wasn’t the shining moment. I know I didn’t live up to expectations.”
“But I will remind the American public and the world. “I’m not a professional ball thrower, but this guy is,” Smith said as a picture of Prescott was shown.
Fans couldn’t help but get in on Stephen A’s jokes, with many laughing on social media.
One fan said: “That was too good haha.”
Another commented: “This is gold haha.”
A third explained: “What did Dak Prescott do to Stephen A man haha.”
And a fourth: “That was dirty. This man is a troll, haha!”
Dallas lost to Arizona 28-16, with Prescott throwing for 249 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
