Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys had another efficient preseason showing.Andy Dalton bogged down a bit with his Cincinnati Bengals.Prescott led a pair of scoring drives in three possessions Clayton Fejedelem Jersey , capped by a scrambling 6-yard scoring pass to Terrance Williams, before the Bengals rallied after halftime for a 21-13 exhibition victory Saturday night.The Bengals had just two first downs in three Dalton-led possessions a week after he threw for two touchdowns with an offense that was revamped after finishing last in the NFL. One of the first downs was on Dalton's 13-yard scramble after the Bengals (2-0) started with a pair of three-and-outs.A week after throwing a 30-yard touchdown to rookie Michael Gallup on his only drive of the preseason opener in San Francisco, Prescott was 10 of 15 for 86 yards. The TD drive for a 10-0 lead was kept alive by an 8-yard slant to Gallup, who reached out for a nice catch inside the Cincinnati 10.The concern for the Cowboys (0-2) was the status of four-time Pro Bowl guard Zack Martin, who left early on what would have been his last drive with a knee injury.Owner Jerry Jones said an MRI was planned Sunday and he was optimistic about the outcome. Martin was injured when he bent down to block cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick in the open field on a run by Rod Smith. Martin was on the sideline in street clothes late in the game."I just want to say we've got more to gain from (the MRI), but from what we've seen, I'll sleep good tonight on Martin," Jones said.Dalton finished 5 of 7 for 41 yards, with his final drive stalling near midfield.On Cincinnati's first offensive play after Dalton left, Dallas defensive end Taco Charlton forced a fumble on a short completion to Tyler Boyd, with cornerback Byron Jones getting the recovery."We've got things we can work on, attacking the football, throwing balls down the field http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-john-ross-jersey ," coach Marvin Lewis said. "We had opportunities. We just missed the timing of it and we've got to be better at those things."The Cowboys forced two turnovers after getting three against the 49ers. The highlight was Chidobe Awuzie's leaping interception , which he tipped to himself along the sideline late in the first half.Cincinnati's first points came on backup kicker Jonathan Brown's 55-yard field goal in the third quarter.The Bengals went ahead 11-10 when Tra Carson scored on a 2-yard run and Jeff Driskel threw a 2-point conversion pass to John Ross. Matt Barkley's 3-yard touchdown pass to Brian Hill wrapped up the scoring midway through the fourth quarter.LONG TIME COMINGDallas defensive end Randy Gregory played for the first time since the finale of the 2016 regular season. He missed all of last season after getting suspended three times in 2016 for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Gregory didn't show up in the defensive stats but pressured Dalton on a third-down misfire to an open A.J. Green on Cincinnati's opening possession.TALE OF TWO WORKLOADSWith star running back Ezekiel Elliott sitting again for Dallas, Smith had 13 carries in the first 18 minutes, finishing with 49 yards. His workload was helped by a nearly nine-minute drive to Williams' touchdown. Bengals starter Joe Mixon got just four carries for 8 yards.O-LINE OVERHAULThe work in progress that is the overhauled offensive line for the Bengals remains that way, this time after fired line coach Paul Alexander was watching from the opposing sideline after getting hired by Dallas. Cedric Ogbuehi was at right tackle to start the second half when gave up a sack to Charlton while getting called for holding. Cincinnati running backs had just 7 yards on six carries before halftime.NATIONAL ANTHEMThe Cowboys were standing for the national anthem in the first preseason home game, "toe on the line" as owner Jerry Jones declared they would be in his opening remarks at training camp last month. The Dallas players, with some coaches sprinkled in, were single file on the sideline, spanning about 50 yards. As usual, all the Bengals were standing.INJURY REPORTBengals: Rookie CB Davontae Harris was ruled out with a knee injury in the first half. ... TE C.J. Uzomah sustained a cut to his face early in the game, but came back with a 23-yard catch in the first half.Cowboys: S Xavier Woods left with a hamstring injury. ... Rookie RB Bo Scarbrough, a seventh-round pick out of Alabama, went to the locker room with a hip injury. ... DE Datone Jones and S Jameill Showers left with knee injuries.UP NEXTFor "dress rehearsal" week Womens Billy Price Jersey , the Bengals will be at Buffalo and the Cowboys will be home against Arizona. Both games are next Sunday.This story has been corrected to reflect that Cincinnati two first downs on three possessions instead of one first down on four possessions with Andy Dalton at quarterback. What would the Bengals be able to get for the 11th overall pick?"The Bengals 6-10 record in 2018 earned them the 11th overall selection in this year’s NFL Draft. This pick could be of high value, because it is a prime position for a team to trade up in order to select a quarterback — particularly if the Broncos do not take a quarterback with the 10th pick. While Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray will be long gone; Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins, Missouri’s Drew Lock, or Duke’s Daniel Jones could be available. The clock will be ticking so the Bengals had better plan ahead for this scenario. Lets’s just say that the Bengals are targeting a linebacker in the first round. Maybe LSU’s Devin White goes in the top five, but Michigan’s Devin Bush is still available at 11. Bush would likely survive for a few more picks, so the Bengals could trade down and still get him as long as they stayed in front of the Steelers and Ravens. This makes as the Dolphins (13th pick), Redskins (15th pick), and Giants (17th pick) are all potential trade partners.The trade value chart is used to assess the value of individual draft picks and gauge what is fair compensation to move down in the draft. The Jets, Bills, Cardinals, and Ravens all traded up in the first round to draft quarterbacks last year. The Cardinals trading from 15th to 10th is the closest to the Bengals scenario, so let’s examine that one.In 2018 the Cardinals traded up to the 10th overall pick from the 15th. According to the trade value chart the difference in value between these two picks was 250 which was the value of the 68th overall pick. The actual compensation for the move was the 15th pick, the 79th pick (valued at 195) and the 152nd pick (valued at 30.2). So the Raiders got the short end of the stick according to the trade value chart. Let’s look at what a move to the 11th pick should cost the Dolphins Womens Hardy Nickerson Jersey , Redskins, or Giants.Miami Dolphins - 13th pickThe Dolphins have moved on from Ryan Tannehill, but Ryan Fitzpatrick is just a placeholder. According to the chart, the difference between the Bengals 11th pick and the Dolphins 13th is 100. The Dolphins fourth-round (116) and fifth-round (151) selections total out to be a little over over 90. The Dolphins do not have a pick in the sixth round, so the deal would probably be something pretty similar to this.Dolphins receive 11th overall pick; Bengals receive 13th overall, 116th overall, and 151st overall Washington Redskins - 15th pickWith Alex Smith’s injury and age, the Redskins may look towards the future of the quarterback position in this year’s draft. The Redskins 15th pick is worth 200 less than the Bengals pick. Their third-round pick (76th overall) is worth 210. The Bengals may have to throw in one of their many sixth-round picks, but this is probably doable. Redskins receiver 11th overall pick and 198th overall pick; Bengals receive 15th overall and 76th overallNew York Giants - 17th pickIf the Giants take an offensive lineman or edge rusher with their first pick, they may look to trade up a bit to get their quarterback. Their 17th overall selection is worth 300 less than the Bengals 11th overall. That is the equivalent of a late second-round pick. Unfortunately, the Giants do not have one of those. They have a late third-round pick (95th overall). This could be packaged with their early fourth-round pick (108th overall) or their two early fifth-round picks (142nd and 143rd overall). They have a lot of picks in this year’s draft, so that creates some options. Of course, the Bengals have a lot of picks too. They may be able to get the Giants to send them their 2020 second round pick. Giants receive 11th overall pick; Bengals receive 17th overall http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-john-miller-jersey , 95th overall, and 108th overallGiants receive 11th overall pick; Bengals receive 17th overall, 95th overall, 142nd overall, and 143rd overallGiants receive 11th overall pick; Bengals receive 17th overall and Giants 2020 second-round pickOf course the Bills also traded up last year and gave up much more. The Bills had 12th overall selection and moved up to the seventh pick. This was a difference of 300. The Bills traded two second-round picks valued 710 in total to move up.So there is a chance that someone could be so eager to get a given player, that they overspend and the Bengals could cash in, but the above scenarios set the benchmark. It would be a savvy move for the Bengals were able to trade down and pick up additional picks, while still getting the player they wanted all along.
