I regret to inform you that the Dallas Cowboys season is over before it started.

Amidst a Sunday Night Football butt-kicking from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Dak Prescott suffered an injury that will force him to miss 6-8 weeks. In football terms, that's basically a season-killer for a team.

The Cowboys will now look to Cooper Rush to lead them for the time being, including in a Week 2 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Bengals also suffered a heartbreaking loss. They did everything they wanted to against the Steelers, but turnovers and missed field goals ruined their chances of winning. The Steelers ended up snagging victory from the jaws of defeat in overtime.

Which team will bounce back in Week 2 with a win? Let's find out what the oddsmakers at FanDuel think.

Bengals vs. Cowboys Prediction and Pick

I'm not going to judge the Bengals for their Week 1 loss to the Steelers. They still dominated that game in almost every facet of the game.

They gained 432 total yards, and converted 8-of-16 third down conversions. If it wasn't for the five turnovers, which could be attributed to Joe Burrow missing the preseason, the Bengals would have won in Week 1 handedly.

I have zero faith in Cooper Rush being able to keep this game close against the defending AFC champion. He completed only 53.8% of passes against the Buccaneers after subbing in for Dak Prescott, and averaged only 4.9 yards per pass attempt.

The Bengals get back on track in Week 2 with a massive win.
