1. Tom Brady, Tampa Bay, Week 1

It will be almost one year to the date when the Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have their rematch from Week 1 of the 2021 season. That contest was held in Tampa Bay and the defending Super Bowl champs narrowly defeated Dallas.

Prescott was playing his first game since his broken ankle knocked him out in Week 5 of the previous season and he was ready for the spotlight. The Dallas signal-caller had 403 yards with three touchdowns and led Dallas on a late drive that ended with a go-ahead field goal. The problem was that they left 1:24 on the clock for Brady.

The seven-time Super Bowl winner then did what he always does as he methodically led his team down the field for the win. He moved them 57 yards on 11 plays to set up the game-winning field goal, leaving Dallas with just two seconds and no chance to win.

Brady is now 6-0 all-time against Dallas — with five of those wins coming as a member of the New England Patriots. As frustrating as it is to never hand Brady a loss, the man is simply a winner and it’s not as if Dallas is the only franchise that struggles to try and stop him.

In his 22-year career, he has led his team to 243 wins in the regular season and 35 in the playoffs. He’s never had a losing campaign and is widely considered the best to ever play the game.

Even more impressive than his wins is the fact that he’s now 45 years old and coming off a season where he threw for 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns. The man is not human and it will be a tough task to start the season 1-0 with Brady on the other side of the field.
