Cowboys vs. Bengals score: Cooper rushes over Joe Burrow to lead Dallas to thrilling Week 2 win

The Dallas Cowboys escaped the defending AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2 when Brett Maher kicked a game-winning 50-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to win 20-17. With Dak Prescott out with a thumb injury, Cooper Rush set up Maher on a six-play, 33-yard drive with less than a minute left to set up the game-winning boot.

Rush proved to be a capable game manager as he completed 19 of 31 passes for 235 yards and a touchdown. Noah Brown was his favorite target, catching five passes for 91 yards and a touchdown. While the Cowboys were in control for the first three quarters, the Bengals pulled off an almost unbelievable comeback.

Cincinnati’s first game came at a crucial juncture. Late in the fourth quarter, Joe Burrow went 83 yards down the field in 19 plays to tie the game at 17 apiece with a touchdown pass to Dee Higgins and a two-point conversion to Tyler Boyd. The Bengals had a chance to engineer a game-winning drive on their next possession, but instead went three-and-out, setting up the Rush for a chance at glory.
