Both the Atlanta Falcons and Dallas Cowboys had disappointing Week 1 losses, and now the two will be pitted against each other in a pivotal matchup to avoid an 0-2 start.

CBS Sports picks are from their panel of experts, numberFire picks are from their NFL game projections, Sporting News picks are from Tadd Haislop, and betting favorites are from FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 1 NFL odds.

CBS Sports: Cowboys (4), Falcons (2)
numberFire: Cowboys
