Bengals vs Cowboys Preview

The Dallas Cowboys look to score their first touchdown and win of the season on Sunday but will have to achieve both without starting quarterback Dak Prescott.

Dallas lost Prescott to a thumb injury against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week in a 19-3 loss. Cooper Rush will take the reins when the Cowboys (1-0) face the defending AFC Champion Cincinnati Bengals (0-1) on Sunday.

“I think Rush is up to the task of winning ball games for us, and I think he certainly has had a lot of experience in this offense,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said told 105.3 The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News. “He and Kellen Moore have been joined at the hip for a long time. So, I like who we’re lining up out there to give us a start right there. . . . Dak is one of the best there is at finding the open guy and going to the right guy. Rush can do it, too.”

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow meanwhile looks to right the ship after his team fell short against the Pittsburgh Steelers, 23-20. Burrow did his part to give the Bengals a chance to win at times with 338 yards passing and two touchdowns, but he threw four interceptions.

“People always say bad game, there were so many good things that happened,” Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said about Burrow via Cleveland.com’s Michael Niziolek. “You look at plays you want to correct and move on from. That’s really ultimately what we look at.”

“There’s no panic,” Taylor added. “You look at each play on its own. We felt good about getting out there on the next series and rebounding and still letting Joe go do his thing. There’s no panic, we just want to remain consistent and calm. We had an opportunity to win the game despite all the things that happened.”

The Bengals now have to tangle with a tough Cowboys defense, led by linebacker Micah Parsons. The Cowboys notably stopped the Bucs from scoring touchdowns five out of six times last week.

“They got a really smart unit, they use everybody really well,” Taylor said per Cleveland.com. “You can see their coordination and communication, they are on top of it. They got good players, good coaches and good scheme and do a good job communicating it. It makes it hard.”
