Cowboys visit Buccaneers to kick off 2021 NFL schedule
Ahead of the reveal of the full NFL schedule on Wednesday, it was announced that the reigning Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the Dallas Cowboys to kick off Week 1 of the 2021 season.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news of the Cowboys-Buccaneers Opening Game.
It should be an epic showdown between two productive crimes.
Of course, however, much of the conversation will inevitably revolve around the quarterback position.
Dak Prescott vs. Tom Brady starts 2021 NFL schedule off right
Tom Brady is every QB’s GOAT, and even though he’s about to turn 44 this August, it doesn’t really feel like he’s slowing down yet. Brady can still make all the throws, has an elite football IQ, and is surrounded by tons of playmakers.
While the Dallas defense may be too reliant on rookies to stop TB12 and Co., Cowboys fans can at least take comfort in the fact that their interlocutor, Dak Prescott, is expected to be in full health after the major injury to the body. ankle that cut his 2020 campaign. short.
Before Prescott fell, he was in full swing amid an otherwise disappointing first year at the helm of Dallas head coach Mike McCarthy. Prescott averaged 371 yards per game last year in five starts.
The injury situation complicated Prescott’s long-term contracts situation. Eventually, however, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did the right thing and gave Prescott that massive paycheck this offseason, which sparked a sense of peace around the USA team.
Whatever happens, this is an exciting game between two top quarterbacks, and it will be a huge boost at the start. With an expanded schedule now including a 17th regular season game, a longer rest before Week 2 will benefit both teams.
If the Bucs start their championship defense with a “W”, that’s even better. If the Cowboys find a way to ease the anger, their bid to grab the NFC East crown will be off to a flying start.
