Game Analysis & Picks
Week 1 for both teams was one of those just burn the game film and let’s focus on Week 2 type of game. America’s team the Dallas Cowboys suffered a 14-point loss on Sunday Night to the Buccaneers. To make matters worst their quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a torn ligament in his thumb, which will sideline him for 4-6 weeks. The Super Bowl runner up Cincinnati Bengals came out flat in a three point lost to the Steelers. Joe “Shiesty” Burrow had a lost fumble and five interceptions – including one pick 6.
A couple key takeaways before we get into my pick:
-CeeDee Lamb failed to take that WR1 leap converting only 2/11 targets for 29 yards.
-Tee Higgins is questionable with a concussion he suffered Sunday.
-Cowboys defense actually held their own against a high-powered offense.
With that being said… Not exactly sure I can put my full faith in Cooper Rush to bring this one home. Joe Burrow is due to bounce back and I think it will come down which team can continue to put up points which will be Cincinnati. The Cowboys offense even with Dak in the lineup, didn’t look in rhythm with his wide outs, and both running backs couldn’t get any momentum on the ground. With Rush in the lineup, I’m not sure Kellen Moore is going have his back up doing a lot of play-action and have him rolling out. I can see Tony Pollard and Ezekiel Elliot having huge roles with a lot of check downs on Sunday. Everyone knows how potent the Bengals offense can be once Burrow is in the zone. It may be a close game going into half, but I like the Bengals to cover the (-7) on Sunday, and I’m also taking the Over (42).
Ja’Marr Chase anytime TD scorer (+115). Undoubtedly a Top-5 WR in the game right now. His route running against man coverage may be the best in the league. Expecting Trevon Diggs to be covering him and after his redzone performance against Mike Evans last week, this feels like we’re robbing the books. Chase had 6 redzone targets and 2 grabs for 1 TD in Week 1 against the Steelers. Look for Burrow to be keying in on his favorite target since college once again.
