Cowboys vs Bengals: 6 things to know about Week 2 opponent

It wasn’t quite the start most Dallas Cowboys fans were hoping for, getting soundly beaten in the season opener. 

Losing quarterback Dak Prescott for the next several weeks won’t ease fears about a year already on the brink of disaster. 

However, the Cowboys cannot sit and pout, they must move forward and that means preparing for the Cincinnati Bengals and the current AFC champions in Week 2 

Cooper Rush will get the start at quarterback, and his win last year in Minnesota could give the team some confidence in his abilities in this game. 

Beginning the season 0-2 isn’t a death sentence, but it would behoove the Cowboys to win some games without Prescott and starting 0-2 at home isn’t ideal. 

The Bengals also lost their first game, so they’re looking to avoid an 0-2 hole as well. Desperation is on the line. 

The Bengals made the Super Bowl last season, and they might be favored in the game, but they haven’t beaten the Cowboys since 2004.
