The Dallas Cowboys unfortunately have started the season at 0-1. They had the privilege of opening up the new NFL season in Week 1 against the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers but ultimately fell short.
Despite a solid performance and a close victory in a thrilling game of football, the Cowboys now move on to another road game, this time to the City of Angels in Week 2. With a date in SoFi Stadium against the Los Angeles Chargers, all eyes will be on America’s Team to see if they can bounce back this time around.
The Chargers, on the other hand, are 1-0 after a 20-16 win over the Washington Football Team. Of course, since it’s so early on in the season, both teams are still trying to find their identity to end September on a high note. Hopefully, the Cowboys can get their first win of the season and spoil the home opener for the Chargers.

Cowboys vs Chargers Prediction Week 2
The Cowboys have some big question marks when it comes to their offensive line. At the moment, they’re playing musical chairs on their o-line which could once again prove problematic for the Cowboys’ offense to click on all cylinders in this Week 2 matchup. Between injuries and players, unfortunately, landing on the COVID-19 list, expect to see some shuffling around when it comes to the Cowboys’ o-line.
Hopefully, Cowboys’ offensive coordinator Kellen Moore can go back to what has worked in the past and that’s establishing the run. Considering that running back Ezekiel Elliott only got 11 rushing attempts last week is inexcusable. Hopefully, Moore feeds Elliott the football against a tough Chargers team that has won the last three games against the Cowboys dating back to 2017.
In what should be a close game of football, expect the Cowboys to squeeze a win with a game-winning field goal since kicker Greg Zuerlein is undoubtedly going to look for redemption in Week 2. We’re predicting the Cowboys win another close game 17-14 over the Chargers to finally get in the wins column.
