The Dallas Cowboys are desperate.

Your star quarterback, Dak Prescott, is out for the foreseeable future unless you take medical advice from Dr. Jerry Jones serious. While they surprisingly won their home game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2, no one is thrilled about quarterback Cooper Rush.

That has sparked some speculation in the league that the Cowboys may be trying to make a move. In the latest betting circles, a former New York Jets quarterback has now risen to the top of the pick.

According to BetOnline.ag, Ryan Fitzpatrick, the retired former Jets quarterback, is among the betting favorites to step in for Dallas in QB.

Many of the names on the list are very interesting, to say the least:

Some of those quarterbacks at the bottom of this list, like Fitzpatrick, are retired and have given no indication that they are coming back.

Of all the options, however, the least surprising retiree jumping off the couch would be Fitzpatrick. More specifically, the TV booth after accepting a job as a studio analyst for Amazon.

This has presented the seasoned veteran with a unique opportunity to keep his foot in the game and also to be around if he ever wants to scratch that itch of playing again.

Speaking of former backup quarterbacks, there was a lot of controversy leading up to the Jets’ Week 2 matchup against the Cleveland Browns.

Gang Green fans cried out for Mike White in Week 1, but the coaching staff didn’t change anything. Then head coach Robert Saleh left the door open in the run-up to the second game of the year but ultimately stood by Joe Flacco.

That decision paid off in large measure as the 37-year-old put on a solid performance with sexy stats.

That calmed the chatter for White to get a chance. Of course, that conversation will reignite this week when the Jets play the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3.

This is the same opponent at the same venue where the Jets scored the massive upset in 2021. This victory was delivered by “hall of fame” Quarterback Mike White, but after that it all fizzled out.

Despite everything that happened last year, the Bengals will play a different backup quarterback this time.

The Jets are 1-1 after just winning their first game of September in four years. On the other side of the fence, the Bengals are in utter desperation mode at 0-2.

Cincinnati just went to the Super Bowl and now they’re on the wrong side of history. Corresponding StatMusea team has failed to make the playoffs after starting 0-2 for the past three seasons.

According to the latest Vegas line, the Bengals are currently a -4.5-point favorite against the Jets at MetLife Stadium.
