This is a great opportunity to get in on promising underdog NFL odds for the week that could potentially cash out for Dallas fans. Looking back at the Cowboys’ Week 1 loss to the Buccaneers, they had their head in the game until the very end as they lost on a game-winning field goal for a finish of 31-29, Bucs.
They were able to put on a scoring clinic behind Dak Prescott’s 403 yards and 3 touchdown performance against a Top-10 defense from 2020. They had strong performances from their top two receivers in Amari Cooper and Ceedee Lamb who combined for 243 receiving yards.
Granted, the Chargers defense held their own against the Washington Football Team’s core of receivers, as they let up just 135 yards through the air. However, Dallas’s receiving core is far more equipped than what Washington had to offer and will certainly be the deciding factor for the outcome of this game.
There could also be a bounce-back from RB Ezekiel Elliot who was held to just 33 yards in Week 1, as the Chargers front seven allowed Antonio Gibson to go for 90 yards and the Washington rushing attack went for 126 yards as a whole.
When all is said and done, this is a completely different Cowboys team from a year ago and they are expected to come out of the gates swinging in Week 2 against this Chargers team. Kickoff is set for Sunday at 4:25 p.m. EST on the CBS Network.
