The Dallas Cowboys are one of the NFL’s legacy teams. They’ve won five Super Bowls. They’re the league’s most valuable franchise. They check every box in regards to innovation, popularity and – until this current 25-year “hiccup” – success.
But there’s something America’s Team has never been able to do: beat Tom Brady.
The opportunity to break the 0-5 streak comes tonight when the Cowboys play Brady and the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The odds are obviously stacked against a Dallas victory.
n injury to Dak Prescott and a porous defense led to a disappointing 6-10 record for head coach Mike McCarthy in his first season with the Cowboys.
But just like every team in the NFL, hope springs eternal in Week 1. And the Cowboys have an opportunity to start the 2021 season with a great first step if they can dethrone the defending champion Buccaneers on Thursday night in Tampa.
After that, there’s 16 more games on the schedule as the league expands its regular season to 17 matchups for the first time.
The time has come as the NFL regular season is less than 12 hours away as the Dallas Cowboys take on the defending super bowl champions, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fans of both teams will be packing out Raymond James Stadium to watch an exciting and heart-racing game that will feature many stars.
Before tonight’s game, let us discuss three Cowboys players to keep your eye on.
Cowboys at Buccaneers time, odds, pick, TV: Tom Brady, Bucs begin quest to repeat on Thursday Night Football
The 2021 NFL season is finally here. The road to Los Angeles begins Thursday night, with the defending champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers hosting the Dallas Cowboys at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida (8:20 p.m. ET, NBC).
The Bucs return all 22 starters from last year’s team — the first time a Super Bowl team has done so since the 1970s. The Cowboys, meanwhile, get back their starting quarterback and both of their starting tackles, the three of whom combined to play just seven games last season.
A wealth of talent will be on display on both sides of the ball, so let’s just get right to it and break down the matchup.
FRISCO, Texas — Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott found running back Ezekiel Elliott on a wheel route and handed off to running back Tony Pollard. He nailed Amari Cooper as the receiver cut underneath during a play-action period. Prescott connected with tight ends Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz on deeper routes in third-down situations.
“He’s throwing the ball with some pop,” Elliott said after the Aug. 25 practice when Prescott, it seemed, was finally cutting it loose. “Dak looks really good.”
Even better news, as Prescott awoke one and two days after: He was feeling good. No residual soreness or tightness. No disappointment about the injury gauntlet he has cycled through the last year.
Su objetivo debería ser terminar como la ofensiva mejor calificada de la NFL.
It seems possible that the Dallas Cowboys-Tampa Bay Buccaneers could hit records for bets on a regular-season game.
More states than ever have legal sports betting, with Arizona launching sport betting today. We have waited a long time for the NFL to return. And when it does return on Thursday night, it’s with the defending champion Buccaneers, the most notable name in the NFL in Tom Brady, and a Cowboys team that gets more attention than any other NFL franchise.
