It’s now down to the ‘win or go home’ portion of the NFL schedule. The playoffs are here and the Dallas Cowboys have a game on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Even though the Bucs are at home and won the NFC South, DraftKings Sportsbook has the Cowboys as the favorite by 2.5 points. That makes sense with the Cowboys going 12-5 on the season while the Bucs were just 8-9.
But the Cowboys are coming off an abysmal showing versus the Washington Commanders. Dak Prescott was awful and will need a true bounce-back game for the Cowboys to win. Dallas is returning some injured players so that is helpful.
On the other side of the field, though, will be Tom Brady. He’s not had his best year by any stretch of the imagination, but ‘Playoff Brady’ can appear at any time and that would be trouble for the Cowboys. Dallas has never beaten Brady, so now would be a good time to start.
Here is what you need to know for the game.
