Both teams picked up wins in primetime games in Week 1, but now Dak and the Cowboys head to Denver
Both the Cowboys and Broncos played at home in primetime in Week 1, with Dallas making short work of an Odell Beckham-less Giants team on Sunday night and Denver holding on for dear life in the second half after a furious Chargers comeback to earn the win on Monday night.
Now the Cowboys head to Denver to see if their defense can replicate its awesome showing in the team's 19-3 win over the Giants. Trevor Siemian will be looking to string together two quality performances after leading his offense to a fine showing against a quality Chargers defense in Week 1.

Can Denver's D slow down the Cowboys?
The Broncos know they'll be in for a steady diet of Ezekiel Elliott on Sunday, but that doesn't mean it'll be easy to bottle him up.
"It's not a complicated offense to prepare for or defend, but they're so good at what they do, so it will be challenging," said Denver coach Vance Joseph,
But Broncos pass rusher Von Miller also realizes that there's more to stopping the Cowboys than stopping Zeke.
"He's poised back there and he just doesn't look like a second-year player," Miller said of Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott. "Last year, he didn't look like a rookie. He has one of the best, if not the best, offensive lines blocking for him and one of the best, if not the best, running back behind him.
"If I was a quarterback, I'd be walking around like Dak Prescott too."

Dak Prescott, Broncos QB?
Speaking of Dak, he recently told the NFL Network that if not for a missed flight during the predraft process, he might have by John Elway and the Denver Broncos, who instead decided to trade up in the first round and select Paxton Lynch last year.
Who will win?
Despite Denver's Week 1 win, Vegas has made the Cowboys the road favorite this week, with the line getting as high as Cowboys -2.5 at one point. Pete Prisco explains why he's making the Broncosat that number:
The Cowboys are favored here after their big win over the Giants last week, but it seems out of whack. Are they really better than the Broncos? The Denver defense is good in the secondary and they have Von Miler. The Dallas defense played well last week, but I don't think they do it two weeks in a row. Broncos win it outright.
