The Dallas Cowboys are near-unanimous picks over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Sunday's game.

The Dallas Cowboys (1-1) finally head to Arlington for the first home game of the season, taking on the 1-1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Cowboys are coming off an incredibly disappointing performance on the road against the Seattle Seahawks, being beaten in all phases of the game during the 27-7 loss.

The Bucs, meanwhile, are looking to rebound after a disastrous game on the road to the New York Giants, in which Tampa Bay blew a 27-16 lead by allowing 21 points in the final 6:48 of regulation.

The inconsistency from the win against the Giants to the flop against Seattle appears to not have created much of a damper on how the experts expect the Cowboys to play on Sunday against the Bucs.

The Cowboys are unanimous favorites among the ESPN experts, with all 12 picking Dallas to win over Tampa Bay.

Meanwhile, all but one of the CBS Sports experts have picked the Cowboys. Jason Cole and Les Carpenter of Yahoo! Sports have both picked the Cowboys to win as well.

The Cowboys are current 9-point favorites over the Buccaneers. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET.
