Tom Brady is now 44 years old and about to embark on his 22nd NFL season. He is going for his eighth Super Bowl ring and second in as many years with the Buccaneers. Personally, with Drew Brees retiring for the broadcast booth, Brady is poised for a few more all-time records including the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards as he starts the season trailing Brees by just 1,154 yards.
Though it’s true Bruce Arians and the Bucs are led by the most accomplished quarterback in history, their team is built in a way that would make any QB salivate. Most of Tampa’s supporting cast are back to help the team’s chances of a repeat including three-time pro bowler Mike Evans who caught 13 touchdowns last season and the Bucs leading rusher from a year ago Ronald Jones II.
The Cowboys are coming into the 2021 season trying to bounce back from a very disappointing 2020 season. Dallas’ season took a dive in week five when quarterback Dak Prescott broke his right ankle, ending his season.

Despite the injury, the Cowboys signed Prescott to a long-term deal worth $160 million after franchise tagging him the last two seasons. Prescott then started training camp, but then suffered a right shoulder strain and was held out of the preseason. Thursday night Prescott will see his first game action since that fateful Sunday afternoon last season.
Dallas is also hoping to have as much protection as possible for Prescott in the opener. All-Pro guard Zach Martin tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday and his status for Thursday is in question. By NFL protocols, Martin needs to pass two COVID tests prior to kickoff Thursday.
The Buccaneers are 9-point favorites against the Cowboys. The over/under is 52 points. The 2021 NFL season marks the league’s first 17-game regular season schedule.
