The Cowboys gained’t be capable of faucet the brakes with a working recreation that spun its wheels in Week 1 and depends on Prescott to maintain defenses trustworthy. Not with the modest backup Rush on the helm for the primary time since beating the Minnesota Vikings 20-16 final season.

Cincinnati’s man-heavy cross protection gained’t chunk on misdirection and which means Rush must use his arm expertise and hope for a lot higher from Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard. That’s not a profitable recipe for Rush or Dallas.

Our Pick: Cooper Rush over 0.5 interceptions -154
