Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Dallas Cowboys: Storylines
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers return all 22 starters from their Super Bowl-winning season. The message is loud and clear: They want to run it back and they're the team to beat in the league until further notice.
The Buccaneers turned the page on Week 8 of last season and never turned back. Brady rose to the occasion as per usual and was lights out in the playoffs, and their defense also stepped up big time.
The Dallas Cowboys, on the other hand, enter this season with a healthier team but their biggest issues are still unsolved. Mike McCarthy's playcalling was questionable, to say the least, and their defense was among the worst in the league.
Dak Prescott has an elite set of weapons at his disposal in Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, Mike Gallup, and Ezekiel Elliott. But the question is whether this team will be able to stop anybody or if they'll need Prescott to throw for 400 yards week in and week out.
