The Dallas Cowboys look to rebound from a Week 2 loss, as they play host to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

The Dallas Cowboys will host their first home game in 2012 this weekend, as they play host to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Dallas will look to turn the page from a brutal 27-7 Week 2 loss against the Seattle Seahawks. Dallas' offense, defense and special teams all struggled in the loss, and will need to improve in Week 3.

Tampa Bay is also 1-1 on the season. The Buccaneers defeated the Carolina Panthers at home in Week 1, before losing a shootout to the New York Giants in New Jersey in Week 2, 41-34.

The Buccaneers allowed Eli Manning to throw for over 500 yards in Week 2, so there should be plenty of reason to believe that Tony Romo can get Dallas' passing game back on track in Week 3. Romo was just 23-of-40 passing for 251 in Week 2.

The Cowboys opened up as nine point favorites, though the line has been dropped to seven by multiple websites.

Kickoff is scheduled for 12 p.m. CT on Sunday at Cowboys Stadium. Televised coverage can be found on FOX.
