Wentz and the Commanders were throttled by the first-place Philadelphia Eagles but hope to make moves in the NFC East with a Week 4 bout in Dallas. In their way, however, is a feisty Cowboys team rolling out backup quarterback Cooper Rush in relief of injured starter Dak Prescott. The game is set to kick off Sunday at 1 p.m. from AT&T Stadium.

Lorenzo Reyes: Cowboys 27, Commanders 13
Dallas showed Monday night that it can clean up mistakes in the second half and Cooper Rush reinforced that he’s a reliable backup. The Eagles sacked Carson Wentz nine times. The Cowboys can rush the passer better than just about anybody in the NFL. This Dallas pass rush is going to feast.
Safid Deen: Cowboys 24, Commanders 20
Can Cooper Rush do it again? The Cowboys’ backup starting in place of an injured Dak Prescott is 2-0, and writing off all the naysayers who had the nerve to say their season was over after Week 1. Rush has outplayed Joe Burrow and Daniel Jones, which isn’t a great measurement, sure. But the Cowboys' defense also held its own in both games since Prescott’s absence. Washington is 1-2, played woefully at home against the Eagles last week and should be able to keep this game against Dallas close. But I don’t think the Commanders beat the Cowboys after what I saw last week.
Lance Pugmire: Cowboys 21, Commanders 12
Washington was especially sluggish in losing to the Eagles and if that reunion couldn’t ignite Carson Wentz, what’s to say this rivalry will?
Jarrett Bell: Cowboys 23, Commanders 17
Nate Davis: Cowboys 23, Commanders 13
Tyler Dragon: Cowboys 23, Commanders 16
