(NFL) Cincinnati vs. Dallas, 09/18/2022 4:25 PM, Score: 17 - 20
Point Spread: 2.50 | -110.00 Cincinnati (Away)
Result: Loss
T.M. Selection: Cincinnati Bengals

I like the Cincinnati Bengals to win this game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Joe Burrow was making every Bengals fan pull their hair out in Week 1. I don't think I've ever seen him play that bad and yet, he set them up to win the game not only once, but twice. They would have won last week if they didn't get their PAT blocked to send it to OT, and if their long snapper didn't mess up the snap. But, week 1 is done, and the defending AFC Champs are not going to want to start 0-2 whatsoever. Tee Higgins got knocked out of the game last week with an injury, and most likely will miss this game as well, but that just makes Jamarr Chase and Tyler Boyd hungrier to get yardage. Dallas, who played in the Sunday Night game in week 1, struggled against the run. Leonard Fournette ran wild on them and they were unable to contain the Bucs. The one good thing for them was their 3rd down, and red zone defense. If it wasn't either of those situations, the Bucs were picking them apart. With Joe Burrow off a season where they were a play away from winning the Super Bowl, I just don't see him playing badly in back to back games to start 2022. Expect Who Dey nation to rise to the occasion in Dallas on Sunday.

T.M. Prediction: 31-21 Bengals
