We are underway from AT&T Stadium, as the Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys are battling to avoid the dreaded 0-2 start. Dak Prescott is out due to a thumb injury, but Cooper Rush has looked sharp in his stead. Dallas was the only team in the NFL to not score a touchdown in Week 1, but this offense scored two in the first half Sunday.

The Cowboys struck quickly in the first quarter, as Rush led an impressive 12-play, 75-yard drive which was capped by a Noah Brown touchdown. After a Bengals field goal, Rush led another touchdown drive — which was sparked by an impressive Tony Pollard 47-yard catch-and-run. The play was initially ruled a touchdown, but the officials overturned the result and placed the ball at the 1-yard line. Dallas decided to reward Pollard for his effort, and he punched in the second score of the game from the goal line. 

Through the first two quarters, the Cowboys acquired a 17-3 lead. Joe Burrow has been under pressure all afternoon, which has affected Cincy’s passing attack. Halftime adjustments are needed if the Bengals want to avoid going 0-2. 

Can the Cowboys pull off the upset? Follow along in the live blog below, as we break down all the action as it happens.
