Both the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming off disappointing Week 2 losses: the Cowboys fell to the Seahawks and the Bucs were downed by the Giants. Now, the two meet in Dallas in Week 2 with both teams looking to improve to 2-1.

Through midweek, most experts around the web believe the Cowboys will win this one at home. All of the ESPN pickers who have turned in their choices so far have the Cowboys taking the game, as has Jason Cole at Yahoo! sports.

At CBS Sports, NFL writer Pete Prisco likes the Cowboys to win, 28-14:

The Bucs are playing a second straight road game. That's tough. And both are outside the division, while this comes against a team playing its home opener. Good luck. The Cowboys are also the better team. That shows up here as Tony Romo gets back on track.

Almost the entire panel of CBS writers also like the Cowboys, with the lone exception being Mike Freeman, who took the Bucs.
