Buccaneers vs Cowboys Prediction:
Prescott has only managed to lead Dallas to one victory in their four games before getting injured. Even without him under center, receiving duo of Dallas, Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb had very good years in 2020. Buccaneers QB Tom Brady starts his second season under center in Tampa, and he is looking to pick upright. The Tampa Bay offense has all 11 starters back after its championship season. Buccaneers have won their last match, which will give them a boost, where the Cowboys couldn’t manage to win any match in the preseason. This time, Buccaneer may defeat the Cowboys.
Predicted Scoreline: Buccaneers 34-16 Cowboys
