1. Dallas Cowboys @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Thursday Night Football)

The Dallas Cowboys will have the opportunity to play on opening night in the 2021 season. What is considered a very tough way to open the season, the Cowboys have to travel to play the defending Super Bowl champions, Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

After a disappointing season for America’s Team (finishing 6-10), they will look to rebound. They should have all their starters back including tackle La’el Collins, tackle Tyron Smith, guard Zack Martin, and quarterback Dak Prescott.

This game will probably be one of the toughest games of the season for the Cowboys. They play a Buccaneers team that is solid on both sides of the ball and are returning all 22 starters. However, this game could give Dallas momentum right out of the gate if they can pull off the upset.

The interesting question remains how will Dak Prescott do in his first game back from injury? The Cowboys probably have to play a flawless game to win. Nonetheless, every Cowboys fan is likely circling this game on their calendar waiting for this intense matchup.
