The Dallas Cowboys season opener has arrived, and just like last year, their Week 1 foe is Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In 2021, this matchup was one of the best games of the season. Unfortunately, the Cowboys left Brady and company too much time on the clock which allowed them to pick up the victory the last time these teams met. Hopefully, the Cowboys are able to start off the season on the right foot and in doing so get revenge against a Buccaneers team that is coming into this season quite vulnerable at certain positions.
So let’s get to it and see what this Buccaneers team is fielding and learn more about thy enemy for Week 1.
