Let Cooper Rush mania begin in Dallas.

Rush, who is subbing for the injured Dak Prescott, threw for 116 yards in the first quarter. He had a 9-yard touchdown pass to Noah Brown and nearly a 47-yarder to Tony Pollard. Pollard, who caught a shovel pass from Rush, initially was ruled as a touchdown as he dove toward the end zone with Vonn Bell wrapped around his legs.

Replay overturned the touchdown and marked the ball at the 1-yard line. Pollard ran it in on the next play.

The Cowboys lead 14-3 after the first quarter.

The Bengals drove 50 yards in 10 plays on their first possession but settled for a 43-yard field goal by Evan McPherson. Joe Burrow is 3-for-3 for 34 yards but has taken two sacks, including one by Micah Parsons.

  1. Evidently Cowboys not THAT bad… After watching Tampa Bay’s defense maul the Saints’ offense too.

  2. Jerry has already taken a lot for giving Dak all that money.
    But man, if this guy goes 4-0…or even looks better than Prescott while losing…you know he can’t put Dak on the bench.
